I would also like a recipe for laundry detergent. Presently I am using just vinegar. It works but perhaps there is something better.

For window/glass cleaner, I like to make it in bulk (1 gal)
1 gal jug of water (pour about half out)
2 cups lemon ammonia
1 cup rubbing alcohol
(Then fill the rest of your jug up with water)
Then add 1 tsp Dawn dishsoap.
Swish around- do not shake.
I use this for an all purpose cleaner as well.
Also, for a streak-free shine, use crumpled pages from an old newspaper to clean mirrors/windows.

Says this type of down load can harm your computer - -...
So I'll just pass on another good item for cleaning ... Peroxide...
Check with your Doctor... It is a very good disinfectant...

I've just been looking for some non-toxic cleaning supplies so the timing could not have been better. Buying natural or organic can be so expensive. The last time I cleaned my showers my eyes burnt so bad I could hardly see. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the recipes,it will save us alot in the long run. God Bless. I can't tell you how many times my wife and I tried ideas for around the house that would save us money. After watching how easy it was to mix your recipes, we will never buy name brand again. We hope you come up with more ideas in the future.
