Hippie Household Cleansers
Now that it's summer time, I'm finally thinking about spring cleaning.

If you're like me, good thing you can clean virtually anything in your home with an easy combination of equal parts white vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle.

For dirty wood floors that need more than sweeping, damp-mop unvarnished floors with liquid Castile soap diluted in two gallons of warm water. For varnished or no-wax wood floors, damp-mop with a solution of one part white vinegar to ten parts warm water.

For ultra-greasy windows your kids have smashed their fried tempeh into, add a half teaspoon of clear liquid soap to the vinegar solution. Tired from all this cleaning? Yeah, me too. And I'm just writing about it.
