Why I Love This Recipe

I am all for being Green and there are so many opportunities in your home. One way is making your own cleaners for you home. Did some research online and came up with this one that actually works!

Note as of 11/17: Technically I don't think washing soda and baking soda are the same thing, however, I couldn't find washing soda in my local store so I substituted with baking soda and it works fine. I think their ingredients are VERY similar. As for vegatable based soap, I use either Dawn or Palmolive Dish Soap.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 tbsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. washing soda
1/2 tsp. vegetable oil based liquid soap
2 cups hot water


Mix together and store in reusable plastic spray bottle.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Is washing soda the same as baking soda? What are some brand names of veg. oil based soap? Thanks for helping to make the world greener!
