DIY NON-VINEGAR HERBAL CLEANER
If you don’t want to use vinegar in your cleaning products (vinegar should not be used on marble surfaces, for instance, as the acid in vinegar can damage marble), try borax instead. Borax is an all-purpose cleaner that can be used for stain, rust and mildew removal, as well as for deodorising. To make a spray, place 1 cup of dried herbs in a glass jar. Fill with hot water, replace the lid and allow to steep for a few days. Strain, then add 2 tablespoons borax and a few drops of essential oil (optional), such as lemongrass, lavender or oregano. Shake to mix, then pour into a spray bottle for use.
