Vinegar Cleaning Recipes To Replace Household Chemicals

From Networx' Chaya Kurtz:

If you haven't jumped on the cleaning-with-vinegar bandwagon, what are you waiting for? You can clean so many surfaces in your house with this edible, non-toxic ingredient. In addition to being an effective cleanser, plain old white vinegar is cheap. Big box stores and club stores often offer deep discounts on this already inexpensive item.

You can create a totally green and non-toxic cleaning supply arsenal with just a few items, all of which can be bought in bulk for additional savings and less packaging: A large jug of white vinegar, a large bulk bag of baking soda, ecological dish soap, rags, a natural cellulose sponge, a good scrub brush, and steel wool pads. You can clean virtually anything in your house with those ingredients, and of course, water.

In order for you to get a jump start on your green spring cleaning, I've got ten ways to clean the house with vinegar, right here for you.
