    Default Safe Cleaning Products?

    So unfortunately while my husband is great at tidying up he is useless with things like cleaning bathrooms and scrubbing the kitchen.... I just can't leave it any longer. Anyone know what is safe to use?

    I wouldn't buy anything, I don't trust that those 'natural' cleaners from the supermarket are all that natural.
    I make a paste out of baking soda and water to clean the shower, it works a treat, straight vinegar works well in the shower too. Also, a mix of vinegar and water as a spray would be sufficient to clean surfaces.
    Most natural cleaners use vinegar, baking soda or lemon juice. If you google you'll find heaps of links, you just need to play around and find what works best.

    Soap nuts are a great natural alternative - I make a liquid and use as spray n wipe, it's really good

    hi every1,
    g8 tips, I think your local health food centre might have natural cleaning products too. I remember visiting them one day and my mum was with me she is chemical free freak & was highly interested in the cleaning products. Think I will now, have to invest in something like enjo.
