Do it your­self clean­ing prod­ucts

The Leader (Nelson) - - FRONT PAGE - ELISE VOLLWEILER

Store-bought clean­ers can con­tain a heap of chem­i­cal nas­ties that may not be very good for us, or for our en­vi­ron­ment.

Many house­hold clean­ers are easy to make your­self, which means you’ll know ex­actly what is in them. This can also work out a lot cheaper, es­pe­cially if you buy the in­gre­di­ents in bulk on­line or from a bulk store such as Bin Inn. and liq­uid soap in a bowl. Add the wa­ter and mix un­til smooth. Stir in the vine­gar last – the mix­ture will foam up a lit­tle. Pour or scoop into a jar with a spat­ula.

How to use it: Scoop the mix­ture out of the jar with a damp cloth and start us­ing. It can be left on sur­faces for a while if your soap scum is be­ing par­tic­u­larly stub­born. This is also a great oven cleaner.
