So many cleaners and chemicals are unhealthy. Use baking soda and vinegar to clean bathrooms and your kitchen sink. A clean rag dipped in hot water will clean your counters and a steam mop will get your floors clean and sanitized with no residue. A pot simmering with water, cinnamon and vanilla makes a great air freshener. It's good for your home, health and the earth!
1/4 cup of vinegar with a few drops of olive oil is a natural furniture polish with no harmful scent or chemicals!
For CDs or DVDs that start skipping because of surface scratches, you can spray a small bit of furniture polish (like Pledge) onto a soft rag and wipe the disk. The polish cleans off the disk and fills in the small scratches so it plays again!
