So since moving in here I had yet to do the big clean on the bathroom (after the initial sanitization). Oh sure I had done a little here and a little there but didn't really get into the nitty gritty. Needless to say after 6 months it needed to be SCRUBBED! I have always subscribed to the school of thought that you need a special cleaner for every room in your house. Not really for any reason other than that they sell a different cleaner for every room in the house. Well since starting this Vegan/Organic thing I've also started thinking about all the chemicals I'm using around my house that are probably not so good to me. So I did a little google search and found this site, Clean and Green.
Holy cow if it didn't blow my house cleaning brain. I went to town yesterday with just some vinegar, baking soda, oil (for my wooden furniture). I cleaned my whole upstairs top to bottom (I'm talking scrubbing freaking baseboards) with only these things. Which didn't really suprise me till I got to the bathroom.
Our bathtub was in a sorry state. There was soap scum, the tub had stains in it that I couldn't get out with all the chemicals in my formal arsenal. So I took my vinegar and sprayed the whole thing down and let it sit. Then after awhile I put some baking soda on my scrub brush and gave it a fresh spray of vinegar and went to town. It sparkles like crazy now. Everything came off soo easy!!!!
Dude our Grandmothers had something going, no wonder why thier houses were so clean they didn't have all these crappy cleaners like we do.
