Emly Tidy Towns

Tip No.2 on greener home cleaning using natural less harmful  products: The five basic ingredients for chemical-free household cleaning are. 1- bread soda, 2- washing soda. 3 -white vinegar, 4- lemon juice. 5- salt.  To clean the oven & hob, bread soda is granular so it can be used as a scrub to clean really tough stains or dried-in dirt. When mixed with vinegar it cleans the even grimiest ovens & baked -on grease
