Recipes for Safer Cleaning - July 2017

Common ingredients such as baking soda and liquid soap can be used for a host of jobs around the house. Try these recipes as alternatives to hazardous cleaning products!

Bathroom Cleaner

  • Baking soda
  • Liquid soap

Use baking soda in place of scouring powder. Sprinkle it on porcelain fixtures and rub with a wet sponge. Add a little soap to the sponge for more cleaning power. Rinse well to avoid leaving a cloudy film.

Window Cleaner

  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 quart warm water
  • Few drops of liquid soap (optional)

Mix ingredients in a spray bottle and use on glass surfaces. Rub with a lint-free cloth and polish with wadded up newspaper. For dirty outdoor windows, wash with soapy water, rinse well, and squeegie dry.

Drain Cleaner

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • Kettle of boiling water

This recipe will free minor clogs and is great preventative medicine. Pour the baking soda down the drain first, then the vinegar. Let it bubble for a few minutes. Then pour down a kettle full of boiling water. If clog is stubborn, repeat or use a mechanical snake.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner

  • Baking soda
  • Liquid soap
  • Vinegar

Don't bother with strong disinfectants or acids. Use a non-chlorinated scouring powder or baking soda and liquid soap to clean the toilet bowl thoroughly and often.

Oven Cleaner

  • Baking soda
  • Razor blade
  • Copper scouring pad

Make a paste of baking soda and water, apply to oven surfaces, and let stand a little while. Mechanical action is the key. Use a copper scouring pad for most surfaces. A razor blade is effective to get under large food deposits.

Copper Cleaner

  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Vegetable oil
Mix equal parts vinegar and salt and apply to surface with a sponge or immerse object in solution. Rinse thoroughly with water afterwards, otherwise it will corrode. Apply a little vegetable oil with a cloth and rub for a shiny appearance. (Don't use on lacquered finishes.)

Wellness Tip
Eating Before Exercise
Your body clearly needs food, but too much just before exercise can impair your performance and make you feel sluggish. Try to strike a reasonable balance. Eat your larger meals 3-4 hours before exercise. Eat small meals if you eat during the last hour or two before starting to exercise.
