More Tips for Cleaning Green Style

Need to clean your oven but dread getting choked by commercial oven spray fumes? Just combine two tablespoons of baking soda, two tablespoons of salt and one cup of hot water. Mix ingredients until a paste forms and apply the paste with a damp cloth. Now you can get that dirty oven clean without holding your breath!

Dissolve mattress stains with a mixture of eight ounces of peroxide, three tablespoons of baking soda and four drops of homemade dish soap. After spraying the stain, it should vanish in 15 minutes. Be aware that the solution you made only remains effective for about a half hour before the baking soda and peroxide become inert
