Do you use any homemade cleaning solutions?
What for?
If you do, would you mind sharing your recipe?
If you don't, is this something you would like to start doing more of?

Do you use any homemade cleaning solutions? The only thing I have tried is baking soda to clean my glass top stove.
What for?
If you do, would you mind sharing your recipe? Sprinkle baking soda directly onto your glass top stove. Fill a bowl with warm soapy water. Dip a flour sack size towel into the soapy water and wring out (but not all the way). Lay the damp towel over the baking soda covered stove top. Let set for 20-30 minutes. Wipe clean.
If you don't, is this something you would like to start doing more of? I would love to find some more homemade cleaning solutions!! I think they would definitely help save some money.

I will use a lot of fresh lemon to clean counters and tables.

I love baking soda and vinegar for cleaning the toilet.

I've tried baking soda in the toilet alone, but not with the vinegar. Does it still bubble up in the water? How much of each do you use? I'd love to give it a try!

I turn off the water. Then I scrub with just the brush for a min or two. Flush so that the toilet is empty. I add the baking soda first then add vin to scrub it clean. It will bubble but not like it does on counters, depends if I get it right on. I scrub for a bit, then turn back on the water and flush again.

Its a lot of work but I only do it when it really needs a great clean.
