simple cleaning tips: vinegar & water spray

make vinegar your friend! white vinegar is natural deodorizer, dissolves dirt and water scum naturally and effectively. also since there are no coloring agents the vinegar solution will not stain. no more harsh chemicals to do the job and it's inexpensive. also great for people with allergies!

basic vinegar cleaner

1 cup vinegar
1 cup water

shake in a spray bottle

this is perfect for counters, table tops, bathrooms, linoleum, tile, stoves, fridges etc.
(the smell dissipates as it dries)

this is my tuesday cleaning list. i try to break it up to have certain things done by certain times. you can tweak any way you want but it kinda helps to cross tasks off as you get them finished.
