There are six things that you will need on hand for your natural cleaning:
- Baking Soda
- Washing Soda
- Distilled White Vinegar
- All-Purpose Liquid Detergent
- Baking soda
- All-purpose Liquid Detergent
- 1 tsp. washing soda
- 2 cups very hot water (be careful not to get burned)
- dab of liquid detergent
- empty dry spray bottle
For those of you who need something for laundry you can always steam clean which is a great choice. Fabric steamers are great for making your clothes last longer in between washes. The hot steam is great for quick freshening, creasing, and removing tough wrinkles.It penetrates deep into fabrics and relaxes fibers, releasing wrinkles faster than ironing and freshening clothes in seconds.
For cleaning white clothing:
Mrs. Stewart's Liquid Bluing can be found in our Laundry Room and the great thing about this is that it is is nontoxic, biodegradable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly.
Now for drains (sinks, tubs) in order to sanitize these (they get pretty icky) you can pour a cupful of white vinegar down your sink weekly (this is especially great for the kitchen sink) and since vinegar is a natural antibacterial it helps to keep your sink sanitary.
