Looking for Non-Chemical Cleaners

  • Burnt popcorn or eggs stuck to the bottom of the pan? Boil some baking soda with water. wipe clean and rinse.

  • Slow drain? Add half-a-cup of baking soda followed by a cup of vinegar - after the volcano erupts - follow with a tea kettle of boiling water. Repeat.

  • Dried lavender makes for a great vacuum companion. So do scented sea salts in the bath aisle.
