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
Soda
Did you know that most sodas contain about 6 teaspoons of sugar per 8 oz. of drink? Instead of soda, try tea without sugar or plain water with a slice of lemon.

In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.
