Blog: How to make a Green Cleaning Kit  
There are so many good reasons to start cleaning green. It costs less than using conventional cleaners, its kinder to the environment, and its non-toxic so kinder to your body too!

You only need a few basic ingredients to clean the whole house.

What you need:
Baking Soda - abrasive, water soluble and anti-fungal
White Vinegar - a deodoriser and sanitiser
Liquid Castille Soap
Tea Tree Oil - anti-fungal, antiseptic

Spray Bottles

Creme Cleaner
1/2 cup Baking Soda
Liquid Castille Soap

Mix the two together to a texture like frosting.
Great on baths, showers and handbasins.

All purpose Spray Cleaner
Fill a spray bottle with half white vinegar and half water. This is also a good floor cleaner.

Mould Killer
2 tsp Tea Tree Oil
2 cups Water

Shake together in a spray bottle and spray onto mould in showers, on walls, ceilings . . . in fact pretty much anywhere!

Window Cleaner
1/2 tsp Castille Soap
3 T White Vinegar
2 cups Water

Microwave Cleaner
1/2 cup White Vinegar
1/2 cup Water

Bring to the boil in the microwave. Baked on food will be loosened so you can easily wipe it off and the microwave will be deodorised.

Toilet Cleaner
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1 cup White Vinegar

Sprinkle Baking Soda around toilet bowl. Pour over White vinegar. Scrub with a toilet brush.

Oven Cleaner
3/4 cup Baking Soda
1/4 cup Salt
1/4 cup Water
