Save Money by Making Your Own Cleaning Supplies - Part 6

Time for some homemade recipes for floor cleaner! Yippee! I actually have to that I like quite a bit. Here it goes (ya takin' notes?)

Floor cleaner option #1:
The greatest cleaner for linoleum is plain ol' club soda. Works like a charm.

Option #2 :

I got this from my wonderful Aunt (it works great!)

Bucket o' hot water
1 cup ammonia
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup baking soda.

Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water (otherwise you'll get a film - yuck!). Add remaining ingredients. Great for grimy messes.

Hope these work for you!

Question of the day:

Some other quick cleaning tips for you:

Use distilled white vinegar instead of fabric softener in your rinse cycle.

Use dryer sheets up to 3 time (or cut them in thirds) then use them to polish you faucets or dust.

Microwave: Mix 2T baking soda or lemon juice and 1 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for five minutes or until the liquid boils and condensation builds up inside the microwave. Wipe down.

Use hydrogen peroxide in your whites instead of bleach.

Since you can't use bleach in your colored laundry loads, use borax! It disinfects and cleans as well as bleach without damaging the fabric and colors!

Hope this helps!
