    Thanks so much, Jessica….
    Love the baking soda tips…..excellent ideas here.

  2. Wonderful advice for the younger generation who think we can only clean with chemicals. Love it. Personally, for the last two years I have adopted the idea of taking orange peels and soaking them with white vinegar. I keep it in a large pickle jar and fill up my squirt bottle when needed. I buy my oranges in the summer and keep the peelings. It seems to last forever and has a great orange aroma when cleaning. You can find the idea on Pinterest.
    Love your site…keep up the good work!

    You can also use baking soda diluted in water to wash your hair, I’ve been doing it for about 8 mnts and don’t have any plans to go back to shampoo cause my hair and scalp are happier.

  4. Great tips, both in the list of 10 and the comments!

    I use baking soda on a paper towel / sponge with a bit of warm water to scrub the tea stains out of my coffee cups and mugs. works like a MIRACLE!
