A friend of mine sent me a frantic email asking how she could figure out which green cleaning supplies to buy. She has a brand new baby and was hoping to learn some new tips for cleaning without fumes and chemicals.  It's easy for manufacturers to claim that their products are clean, but how can you really tell?

Good old fashioned vinegar works wonders.

Baking soda, vinegar, hot water and some elbow grease will clean a WHOLE lot of things. The site has offered instructions for same in the past. It helps, also, if you don’t fry a lot and if you have good venting systems from your bathroom(s). Clorox (or generic) and ammonia are also on my must-have list of non-commercial cleaners. Never never never mix ammonia, which is a base, with vinegar or bleach, which are acids. Bad, even toxic, fumes result!
