Shop during Earth Day weekend (Friday, April 22 - Sunday, April 24) to enter to win our Spring Cleaning Giveaway*! The more you shop, the better your chances. Remember to grab your raffle ticket from your cashier when you check out.
While we sell a number of natural cleaning products in store for your convenience, consider making your own cleaning solutions with common household items.
The basic supplies you’ll need to make your own green cleaners include:
- Distilled white vinegar
- Baking soda
- Essential oils - we have a wide variety in our Health & Beauty section (optional)
Use the recipes below as an alternative to what is sold on the shelves.
Glass: Mix 1/4 cup vinegar with 1 quart of water in a spray bottle. Spray on glass and wipe clean with old newspaper or a lint-free cloth.
Countertops and bathroom tile: Mix 2 parts vinegar and 1 part baking soda with 4 parts water. Apply with a sponge, scour, and wipe away.
Floors: Mix 4 cups of white distilled vinegar with about a gallon of hot water. If desired, add a few drops of pure peppermint or lemon oil for a pleasant scent. After damp mopping the floors, the smell of vinegar will dissipate quickly, leaving behind only the scent of the oil.
Toilet bowl cleaner: Sprinkle a toilet brush with baking soda and scrub away! Occasionally disinfect your toilet by scrubbing with borax instead. Wipe the outside of the toilet clean with straight vinegar.
Mold and mildew: Wipe with straight vinegar.
