What You Need

Ingredients
Vinegar
Baking Soda
Lemon
Essential Oil (optional)
Water
Dish soap

Equipment or Tools
Spray bottle
Bowl

Measuring spoons

Instructions

All-Purpose Cleaner Using funnel, put 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon dish soap, and 2 tablespoons vinegar into your spray bottle. Give it a stir/shake. Let it sit for a minute, now fill bottle with warm water and shake it up. Give it a few more minutes to calm down, and add a few drops of essential oil if desired.

Garbage Disposal Freshener Take the pulp from a lemon (preferably one you’ve squeezed to use for something else) and toss it in the garbage disposal, along with a few thin strips of the peel. Run water and turn on disposal.

Sink or Stovetop Cleaner Put a 1/3 cup baking soda in a bowl. Mix in enough warm water so that you get a nice moist paste. Put paste on sponge or brush and scrub away. Make it as you need it.
