I would just bet that you have a whole cupboard of cleaning products that coast a lot of money and may not be all that good for you and your family. The next time your are grocery shopping buy a big jug of vinegar and get cleaning!
Refrigerator: Definitely skip the toxic chemicals where you store your food. Instead, try surface cleaning with white vinegar. Wipe up spills with a 50-50 vinegar-water mix. You can even keep a bottle of the mixture stored in your fridge!
Drain: Pour vinegar onto a scrub brush small enough to get inside the disposal. Sprinkle the brush with baking soda, then scrub to remove odors and built-up crud, says Mary Findley ofGoClean.com, a former pro cleaner and author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Green Cleaning.
Cutting boards: For cutting board surface cleaning with white vinegar, spray with straight vinegar, then rinse to clean.
Microwave: Surface cleaning with white vinegar isn’t limited to countertops. Get at hard-to-clean mircowave stains by placing 1/2-cup vinegar and 1/2-cup water in a glass bowl. Microwave 2-3 minutes, or until it boils. Wipe buildup away with ease!
Stained plastic containers: Coat in vinegar. Let sit. Wash as usual, says Leslie Reichert, aka The Cleaning Coach.
Countertops: Cleaning kitchen countertops with white vinegar is simple: Just spray onto your surface, then wipe away with a warm, wet rag. However, avoid cleaning countertops with vinegar if you have a granite or marble surface.
