Clean Green this Spring

With the spring cleaning season well underway, we thought it appropriate to address the following question raised by Linda in the comments section of our last post, “What is a green product to use that actually works to clean the bathtub shower scum off of the shower glass doors? I have purchased green and non green products. Thanks so much for your advice.” Here are a couple of “recipes” for all-natural cleaners that should help with that stubborn shower scum: Glass Cleaner #1: Combine 1/4 cup vinegar and one quart of water. Plain club soda also works! Glass Cleaner #2: Mix 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water. Add 5 drops lemon oil or, if you like suds, 5 drops favorite all-natural dishwashing liquid. Use to wash windows, other glass or mirrors. This mixture can also be kept in a covered container with a rag submerged in the liquid. For damp dusting, simply wring the rag out and wipe surfaces clean.
