Castile soap, baking soda, vinegar and water are cleaners that remove dirt and grime from most surfaces in just a few moments. A bucket or sink, microfiber cloths and a clean dry cloth, such as a towel, are necessary cleaning supplies.
Prepare the cleaning solution
Mix 1/2 teaspoon Castile soap in 1 gallon of warm water to wash items such as knick-knacks and very dusty items. To make a vinegar based cleaner, add equal amounts of cold water and white vinegar; 1/4 cup of baking soda, 1 cup of vinegar and 2 liters of water may be mixed to make an all purpose cleaning solution.
Choose a cleaning method
A microfiber cloth dampened with a small amount of soapy water can be used to spot clean furnishings, remove dust around the home and wash walls. Vinegar and water can be used to clean windows, mirrors, kitchen areas and bathrooms. All purpose baking soda and vinegar cleaner effectively scrubs away grime and can be used on most non-porous surfaces to clean and disinfect.
Rinse the item thoroughly
Vinegar and water may be allowed to air dry, while items washed with soap, baking soda or vinegar must be rinsed thoroughly with clean water.
