Secrets of Success

Less Chemicals!




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!

More Information:

1/4 cup of vinegar with a few drops of olive oil is a natural furniture polish with no harmful scent or chemicals!

  • I agree with you 100%

    The chemical cleaners are so expensive, too!

    I have also given up using chemical skin lotions for the same reasons.

    Now I keep a non'breakable jar in the shower filled with sugar and topped with EVOO.

    It is a wonderful scrub and leaves my skin much softer than anything I ever purchased.
