White distilled vinegar is a mild acid and is one of my favorite organic cleaners.

Another one is hydrogen peroxide mixed with water.

Have a mold problem? Check out my blog:

Yes, of course. But when people say this, they never seem to know HOW you know something is safe and non-toxic! Are there any chemical scientists hanging out here who could really explain this to us? I personally dont trust what I read on bottles and packages of stuff in stores. NOR do I believe everything I read here or elsewhere. Like most of us, I WANT to only use safe things, and I try hard to do so. I no longer use chlorine bleach. NOT safe. Hydrogen peroxide cleaners work just as well and as far as I can tell, are harmless. I use all purpose cleaners made by Honest, Meyer's Clean Day and one or two others. All these companies promise their products are safe, "natural", not tested on animals, and non toxic. These companies seem to market a somewhat more upper class of people, who tend to want to use safe things. They also smell really nice, a bonus!

Hi ivankasmith,
Great advice. I prefer to use a non-toxic material for cleaning purpose.

Great tips, thanks!

A good one is to use baking soda to get ingrained smells out of carpets. Just sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet, then vacuum it up after about an hour. This is great for car carpets that have smells from smoking etc.

Yup, I made a blog about the world famous Henry Hoover. Check it out Henry Source for lots of information about the Henry vacuum cleaner.

Non-toxic all-purpose cleaner

All Purpose Cleaner Ingredients
  • 1 tsp borax
  • 1/2 tsp washing soda
  • 1 tsp liquid castile soap
  • Essential oils of choice Ė I use 4 drops lemon, 4 drops lavender, and 10 drops orange
  • Glass spray bottle for storage

All-Purpose Cleaner Instructions
  1. Place borax, washing soda, and soap in a spray bottle (preferably glass).
  2. Add 2 cups of warm water. Distilled is best, but any water that has been boiled will work.
  3. Add essential oils of choice.
  4. Cover bottle and shake well. Use as needed. I use as bathroom cleaner, floor pre-treater, kitchen cleaner and on toys.
