Lemon – a natural acid that is effective against most household bacteria. Borax – Cleans, deodorizes, disinfects, softens water, cleans wallpaper, and is good for cleaning painted walls and floors. Washing Soda – also known as “SAL Soda” - cuts grease, removes stains, softens water, cleans wall, tiles, sinks and tubs. White Vinegar – cuts grease, removes mildew, odors, some stains and removes wax build-up. Cornstarch – can be used to clean windows, polish furniture, shampoo carpets and rugs

Use cast iron cookware - avoid non stick pans, pots, bakeware and utensils. Rather than dry cleaning, use wet. Tell your dry cleaner not to use the plastic wrap or remove it as soon as possible. Let your dry cleaning air out (preferably outside) before you put it away.
