All Natural Cleaning Products

I am always on the hunt for more natural cleaning products, and I stumbled upon this great article at Real Simple about some unexpected natural cleaners most of us already have in the pantry, like rice!  If you have a grimy vase you can’t seem to get clean, fill it with warm water and add a tablespoon of rice.  Stir vigorously.

Another great item on the shelf is oatmeal.  Use it to scrub your hands or make a facial mask by adding it to warm water.  Apply to skin for 10-15 minutes.  With all the recent information coming out about parabens, which are commonly used in cosmetics and skin care products and have been linked to infertility, cancer, and neurological issues, using all natural products not just for the home but for yourself is an ideal way to go.

If you have a tough to treat stain like magic marker on a solid surface counter top or your finished wood floors, dab a little rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and rub gently.

Unless your one of those cleaning freaks like my Grandma Rose who loves scrubbing bathtubs and mopping the kitchen floor, cleaning is a task most of us try to avoid.  Hopefully these products will make a cleaning a little easier!
