Natural Cleaning Products

With all this credit crunch business, we could all do with saving a few pennies this Christmas. Thatís why I have put together a list of natural alternatives:
  • Lemon Juice
  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Borax
  • Castile Soap
  • Corn Starch
See the full post here http://www.totalclean.co.uk/blog/
Does anyone has any more natural cleaning products to add to this list?

Hello TP,

One thing that you may want to amend on that page:

You refer to borax as 'washing soda'

Borax, also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate (Na2B4O7∑10H2O or Na2[B4O5(OH)4]∑8H2O) is a salt of boric (boracic) acid

Washing soda (Sodium carbonate - Na2CO3) is the sodium salt of carbonic acid.

Maybe the terminology is local to North America (?) but could cause some confusion internationally.

a very Merry Christmas and a happy, prosperous New Year.

Do you guys find that the whole green movement is really catching on in your markets?

I find that most of my customers (all) just really don't care.

A significant proportion of my clients care - but I care about how my activities are affecting the planet. Consequently the client gets a green clean regardless.

Using eco-friendly products and proceedures does not entail any reduction in the efficacy of the process. Indeed I am probably achieving the best results of my 43-year career of rug-sucking.

I started green cleaning a decade before people even knew what green cleaning was. For me it's about my own needs and offering an alternative to others. It's not a "fad" for me but a lifestyle.
