• Lemon Juice: With citric acid working in its favour, it both eats through stains and freshens.
• Borax: This mineral powder can be mixed into many combinations and make good cleaners.
• Castile Soap: Pure, organic, healthy to use – there is rarely a better house cleaner.
• Salt: Excellent for taking care of dish stains, if you have the patience to let it sit.
• Essential Oils: Maybe not the best in cleaning, but in combination it provides the aroma.
• Hydrogen Peroxide: Apart from antiseptic, this chemical makes for a strong disinfectant.
• Bleach: While toxic, it works wonders on tougher stains, and it is somewhat harmless when mixed with water.
• Shampoo: Don’t think shampoos can be cleaners? Well, then try cleaning your rug with them.
• Dish Detergent: Works just as well on smaller stains as it does on dishes.
