clean and green

cleaning the green way...not only saves you money, but helps keep dangerous chemicals out of our homes too.

unclog and freshen drains

Pour half of box of baking soda down your sink drain. add a cup of white vinegar and watch the bubble show! once the bubbles are all gone, flush out the drain with hot water.

soft scrub cleanser

mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with enough liquid detergent to make a cleansing liquid. scrub sinks and tubs with a sponge or scrubber. rinse your potion off when you are done. even more fun, it washes off easily and doesn't leave any grit behind.

copper and brass cleaner

mix 1/2 cup of vinegar with two tablespoons of salt. apply with a sponge on item and let it sit for about 15 minutes. rinse and enjoy the shine.

toilet bowl cleaner

mix ¼ cup baking soda and 1 cup vinegar, pour it into toilet and let sit for 5 minutes before scrubbing with a brush.

{a little safety's really important that you don't mix bleach based cleaning products with ammonia based cleaning products. the combination of the two, creates a toxic fume and can be deadly. never mix anything that you don't completely understand and NEVER reuse cleaning containers.}

come and see more of me and my gang at a thorn among roses.
