I am always amazed and relieved at the wonderful efficient cleaning power of baking soda and white distilled vinegar. I use 1/8 C of baking soda and 1/2 C vinegar for small cleaning jobs like cleaning the sink and a small part of the floor and a full C each of baking soda and vinegar for a full load of laundry. Once the fizzing stops and the mixture sets in for a few minutes, the nontoxic cleaning power is incredible and very efficient. I've used this wonderful mixture for 20 years and I'm amazed every time I use it. Any cleaning that would normally require heavy elbow grease makes lifting sticky gross dirt, stains, and dirt that seems impossible to remove are easily removed with this mixture. It sets in and literally lifts it up. I'll sometimes squeeze a little fresh lemon juice to add an extra sparkle and lovely aroma and it's very helpful. Mind you, I'm not a commercial (laughs) but I do swear by this and the proof is there every time and now that I'm a new Mama of an adorable beautiful 15 month old baby boy, nontoxic green cleanliness is very important to my family. I feel good and grateful knowing that I'm able to keep a clean green nontoxic home and family and maintain a very small carbon footprint.
