Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 11:39AM

Thank you @Fox59 and @JillianDeam for letting me share these affordable, all natural, environmentally safe DIY cleaning solutions.

Some of these recipes I learned from my grandmother.  She used to make her own cleaning products and added some major elbow grease to clean her house from top to bottom. I learned from the best.

Here are some of my favorite cleaning recipes:

Scouring Powder

Combine 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup borax, and 1 cup kosher salt in a jar.  Sprinkle on area to be cleaned, wipe with a sponge, and rinse.

Glass Cleaner

Combine 1/4 cup vinegar and 4 cups warm water in a spray bottle.  Use to clean glass or mirrors with a dry cloth or piece of newspaper.

Soap Scum Remover

Sprinkle on baking soda, scrub with a cloth or sponge, and rinse.  Vinegar or kosher salt also work.

Calcium or Lime Remover

For calcium or lime deposits on a chrome faucet, soak a towel in vinegar and wrap it around the faucet.  Let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight.

Clean a Bathtub with Grapefruit and Salt

Halve a grapefruit, sprinkle the top of the grapefruit liberally with salt.  Wet your bathtub and sprinkle the left over salt around the bottom.
