three of most favorite things to discover are ways to simplify my life, ways to save money, and ways to improve my family's health. and when i discover one thing that helps me do all three at once, it is something i just need to share. so, here are some great links with helpful hints about cleaning your entire house and solving household problems with nothing more than vinegar and baking soda. both are inexpensive (much less expensive than icky chemical cleaning products), both are healthy (unlike the nasty chemicals in most cleaners), and they are very simple to keep stocked.
mother earth news points out that you should check the label on tehe vinegar you buy to be sure it's made from natural products (grain, wine, etc), rather than petroleum (yides! i didn't know that was possible!)
i'm excited to get scrubbing!
