The Best Green Cleaners While green cleaning products can be better for the environment, some can contain toxic ingredients that could hurt your health. So instead of ponying up for a specialty cleaning agent, make your own by using natural ingredients you already have around the house. Put cutting boards and counter tops, scrub with the mixture of vinegar and hot water. That’s all you need to remove the bacterial film that even strong disinfects have trouble penetrating. For mirrors and glass, use vinegar and room temperature water. Spray a solution of ten percent vinegar and 90 percent water and wipe a clean cloth to remove all oil films, dirt and dust. Add a dab of dish soap for jobs on windows that involve removing heavy dirt. To remove dust from furniture, just dampen a micro fiber cloth and wipe. If you want the surface to have a slight shine, follow up with the regular cloth, dabbed with olive or pure lemon oil. Clean as a whistle. Check out some more for another 60 seconds solution.
