On today’s episode of Live Young Lifestyle, we learn the detrimental effects of common household cleaning products on our health and the environment, the three types of cleaning products we should avoid, and some safer, do-it-yourself household cleaners.
Do-it-yourself cleaning recipes:
All purpose cleaner: Mix 50% water and 50% distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle. Use on countertops, basins, windows and floors.
Bathroom tile and sink cleaner: Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with a little liquid dish soap to make a paste.
Greasy surfaces: Mix vinegar and salt and scrub.
Oven cleaner: Sprinkle baking soda on oven stains. Moisten with water and let sit overnight. Wipe clean with damp sponge.
Laundry: Add 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle to remove strong odors, brighten colors, and reduce static cling.
