After a recent visit to an immunologist he suggested i give natural cleaning products a go.Because i to agree i was going overboard and should go back to what my mother was using.

Can someone share the formulations for cleaning marble,kitchentops and anything elser around the house.

all i remember people using was vinegar,baking soda and lemon juice.Is this really the way to go?They showed a women today who uses home made products and they took swabs of her kitchen and it's practically clean i was stunned.

Seriously, my Mum always taught us to use vinegar on the windows, and various concoctions of orange oil (!) for other stuff.

There's some here

Another online source here

Baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice are really good, in all honesty, for cleaning.

The only problem I've really had is with organic dishwashing liquids..every brand I've tried, I've had to use more than I would normally, which isn't so cost effective.

You can find literally eleventy hundred brands in your local healthfood store

Eucalyptus is utterly wonderful stuff

And it's rather good for clearing nasal passages too.

Arm & Hammer unscented, colorless clothing detergent is wonderfull. May be worth a try.

You may also want to try SimpleGreen products, they are 100% organic.

Never underestimate the power of baking soda and a little ole' elbow greese as well.

I use Eucalyptus products myself Tinkleflower, and i totally agree.

But, do NOT get it or any residue in your eye(s)...ouch

Oh gosh yes...eucalyptus in the eyes isn't fun!

Neither is cinnamon oil on the skin.

I found that out the hard way....

Yay! I finally remembered where I got the "sample kit" of organic cleaning products.

Check 'em out

The products are great, overall; the only one which didn't really do so well was the dish detergent.

Their sample pack doodah thingy

We use Seventh Generation products. Their detergent and fabric softener work really well. And their all purpose cleaner works well for mopping. You can find a lot of their products at Fred Meyer stores. Albertsons caries it sometimes. The only thing I have trouble finding are dryer sheets.

If you have a two-year-old son who burns a pizza to ashes in the microwave and you need to get rid of the smell, fill a slightly-larger bowl with water and put in a cup of vinegar. Microwave this for 5-10 minutes at a time. After you do it about 5 or 6 times, the smell will be virtually gone.

This does a fewthings:
It lets the fan in the microwave pump out the stinky air. It isn't suggested to run a microwave while it's empty, and so having the water in the microwave helps.

Supposedly, the vinegar (an organic molecule) evaporates and helps bring out any organic stuff caught in the vent of the microwave.

This happened to me just last week, and my wife and I tried it, and it worked very well.
