Natural Cleaning Products


lemonI have been gradually replacing my regular cleaning products with natural alternatives, such as vinegar, lemon juice, soda crystals and baking soda. This change is not just because of the cost factor, but more importantly for me, the benefits to health and environment.

In today’s Irish Independent there is an interesting report on this subject. You can read it here.

  2. I use this recipe to polish wood

    The first ingredient is water, of course. Get yourself a spray bottle and put 3 cups of water in there. Once the water is in your sprayer, you will be adding two additional items:

    – 4 tablespoons of olive oil
    – 2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar

    Add them to the spray bottle and shake the bottle up a little to make everything mix together. That’s it, that is all the wood polish you will ever need. Be sure to test the spray somewhere on the furniture just to make sure you have the mixture right and you will not damage the wood.

    Hope you can find this useful
