Cleaning with Vinegar

I get asked a lot how I get it all done.  One of my secret weapons when I lived in California was that I could afford a cleaning lady.  Shaun and I kept the house neat and cleaned the kitchen, but, twice a month we had people in that cleaned our floors, toilets, mirrors, dusted, etc.  It was so nice to come home on the “cleaning lady” days to a sparkling, fresh smelling home.

With our new lifestyle, a cleaning lady is decidedly NOT in the budget.  After five years of not cleaning toilets, it was a rude awakening to have to clean them.  ICK.

Since I had to start cleaning again, I had to get new cleaning supplies.  Guess what I’m using for almost everything? (Well, if you read the title, then you already know).

That’s right, vinegar!


My friend, Stephanie, mentioned it on Facebook and I decided to give it a try.  I got 2 spray bottles (one for upstairs and one for down) and I filled them with a solution of equal parts vinegar and water.  I’ve been using the solution in the kitchen, in the bathroom-everywhere!

For a deeper clean, I’m planning on mixing baking soda and vinegar.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I will be.  I just ran out of my old toilet bowl cleaner, so the next time I clean the toilet, I’ll be breaking out the baking soda.

So far, I am REALLY happy with the vinegar solution-it’s cheap too!!!

What do you use to clean with, that you can’t live without?
