Anyone else making their own cleaning products. I've just started getting into it, and I love it. I've made all-purpose spray, laundry soap, carpet spot remover and toilet cleaner thus far, and I'm so impressed with how they're working! I just wish I'd started doing it years ago.

White vinegar, baking soda and tea tree oil. And it works like a dream! Hardly had to scrub at all; the stains just bubbled away.

ok, thank you , i have all that at hand .... but you don't mix it all in a spray bottle do you ?

do you sprinkle the baking soda THEN spray on the vinegar mixed up with the tea tree oil ?

do you use straight vinegar or do you do 50% water ?

We use vinegar, baking soda, castille soap, citrus rinds, and EOs for just about everything in various mixtures and proportions.

You can just mix it up right in the toilet. 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/4 vinegar and about 10 drops of essential oil.
