How to Clean Your House in Spring Quickly!


It makes complete sense that cleaning the environment should start in the environment you live in; your home. Through my journey into a greener way of living I have run across key products that are a staple in this lifestyle. I hope you either are doing this already, or interested in starting. All these products are great, inexpensive and freshen the place you live.

Distilled White Vinegar


Use distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle to sanitize kitchen and bathroom surfaces, prevent or remove hard-water scale from the coffee pot, tub and toilet, as a window cleaner, and to remove labels from products or stickers from walls. A couple of tablespoons of ordinary olive oil in a cup of vinegar works well to dust and polish wood furniture.

Baking Soda:

Especially in combination with salt, baking soda works well for scouring sinks and tubs, wiping down and deodorizing the refrigerator, removing smells and stains from carpets and upholstery Rub in, leave for an hour, shake or vacuum out.

Lemon Juice:


Sprayed or rubbed on, lemon juice removes stains from countertops. Clean toilets with a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. Half a cut lemon left on a shelf will deodorize the fridge. Sprayed or rubbed on, straight lemon juice will remove mold and mildew from many surfaces.

Table Salt:

One part table salt mixed with four parts each of borax and baking soda makes a good scouring powder for tubs, sinks and toilets. Adding a little vinegar to a teaspoon of salt makes a good scrub for removing coffee or tea stains from mugs and cups.



Borax helps clean the tub, remove tough stains in laundry. I add it to baking soda and salt to make a general purpose scouring powder.

Wood Ash:

In a paste with a little water; wood ash cleans glass! Sprinkled on and scrubbed into pavement, bricks, and stone, it will help remove oil stains.

When you come up against challenging cleaning or deodorizing tasks, try one or more in combination and you’ll probably find something that will do the trick. There really isn’t a wrong way to go.
