Vinegar Power: Make your own cleaning products

Clean with the power of vinegar

Make your own cleaning products with vinegar

Instead of just blindly going to the cleaning section of your supermarket when you run out of one of the myriad of toxic cleaning products you use, consider this age-old money saving tip.

Just buy a bottle of white vinegar. Pour it into your old cleaning product bottle, one part water, one part vinegar. Voila! A natural, non-toxic cleaner to use around the house.

Try cleaning the toilet by pouring a couple of cups into the bowl and scrubbing it with a brush in the morning. Baking soda poured down a blocked drain followed by some vinegar works a treat.

Not only is it miles cheaper, it is good for the environment and your body can handle it if it gets down your gullet.

Try this washing liquid recipe:


1 soap bar
1 cup of washing soda
1/2 cup of borax

And then:

  1. Grate the soap into a pan and cover with hot water and stir it over a medium heat until it's all melted, stirring it occasionally
  2. Pour the soapy water into a 18 liter/5 gallon bucket
  3. Add the washing soda and borax
  4. Fill the bucket with hot water and stir
  5. Leave overnight

Voila. Make sure you keep it out of reach of children and animals – preferably re-use your old washing liquid containers. Use a cup for each load and save a fortune!
