Homemade Cleaners

Microwave--mix 4 T of baking soda to 1 qt. warm water, wipe out microwave. Don’t forget under the rotating dish & ceiling. It also freshens the microwave.

Ovens--create a mixture of 50% ammonia, 50% water. Store in a spray bottle. For stuck on foods/burnt spots, apply a mixture of baking soda & water directly to the spots. Let stand, for 30 minutes (longer, if really stuck-on). Wipe the surface clean.

Rubbing alcohol--put in a spray bottle & armed with a coffee filter, you can get your windows, mirrors & stainless steel streak free and disinfected. Also, use on phones, knobs/handles/faucets/drawer pulls, etc and TV’s.

Bleach water can be used for disinfecting floors, counters, sinks. Also, if you have a particularly bad odor in your drains, pour a little down to freshen up.
