Spring Cleaning: Homemade Cleaning Recipes from Green Mama

I love this video of the SmartMaMa demonstrating some easy homemade cleaning recipes. It is really amazing how easy it is to eliminate toxic cleaning products by replacing conventional cleaners with these homemade versions. Jennifer gives ideas for an oven cleaner, a carpet stain, a carpet deodorizer (baking soda!), an all purpose cleaner, and a tile and tub cleaner. If you are still buying mainstream cleaning products this is a great introduction to make-it-yourself cleaning products that are greener and cheaper. Best thing is not having to run out to the store for cleaning products. People I have introduced to this old fashioned way of cleaning have been amazed by how well a little baking soda works. I also love this Stainless Steel Magnet Cloth from the container store.
