Today, a Twitter follower of ours shared her blog post about natural cleaning products for the home. We completely agree that green cleaning is something to be proud of – that’s why it’s one of the choices for earning points at Every Day One Thing.

While we’re still adding categories to the Edot site, it’s still possible to earn green cleaning points while using natural products. Here are some great ideas for natural green cleaning with products you probably already have at home.


Vinegar naturally cleans like an all-purpose cleaner. Mix a solution of 1 part water to 1 part vinegar in a new store bought spray bottle and you have a solution that will clean most areas of your home. Yes, we know that vinegar smells bad right off the bat, but the smell does dissipate quickly and it cleans incredibly well.

  • Bathroom – Clean the bathtub, toilet, sink, and countertops. Use pure vinegar in the toilet bowl to get rid of rings.
  • Kitchen – Clean the stovetop, appliances, countertops, and floor.
  • Laundry Room – Use vinegar as a natural fabric softener.  Vinegar removes traces laundry detergent very effectively which is a plus if you have sensitive skin.

Olive Oil/Lemon Juice combo:

These two ingredients combined make an amazing natural furniture polish that leaves an incredible finish and amazing scent.

In an empty spray bottle, mix together 1 cup olive oil with 1/2 cup lemon juice. Shake bottle well. Apply a small portion to a reusable cleaning cloth. Spray cloth (or directly onto furniture) and polish evenly. Use a separate cloth to dry. Remember to shake bottle prior to each use.

Many thanks to our inspiring green tweeter, Savvy Brown Blog.
