i'm always looking for natural and eco-friendly ways to clean my home. i've heard for years that vinegar is a great, natural product to clean with but i've never tried it until recently. and now, i can't stop. i'm cleaning everything with vinegar. the floors, the countertops, the bathroom and even my baking pans when soap and hot water isn't enough.
here's what wikipedia says about cleaning with vinegar: one test by good housekeeping's microbiologist found that 5% vinegar is 90% effective against mold and 99.9% effective against bacteria...an environmentally-friendly solution for many household cleaning problems...it can be wiped on and left - after it dries, the smells are gone.
i've found a spray bottle at the container store and filled it up. now i have my own bottle to spray around for whenever i need some!
