Cleaning green Vinegar

White vinegar naturally cleans like an all-purpose cleaner.

Mix a solution of equal quantities of water and vinegar in a new, store-bought spray bottle and you have a solution that will clean most areas of your home. It is a not only a great natural cleaning product it can also be used as a disinfectant and deodoriser. Always test on a small area to check for colour-fastness first.

It is safe to use on most surfaces and has the added bonus of being incredibly cheap...
