BAKING SODA : an excellent non-toxic and food-grade ingredient. Well-known for its deodorizing properties, it also tackles dirt and grease. Add half a cup to your wash and boost your whites! WHITE VINEGAR : also known as acetic acid, it's a great disinfectant and deodorizer. Fill the rinse agent dispenser of your dishwasher with plain white vinegar. Works like magic. LEMON : a mild acid, lemon juice is known for its bleaching, disinfectant, and antibacterial properties. Cut a lemon in half and rub it on a dirty cutting board, then wipe clean. Take the other half, place it in a bowl and microwave for one minute. Use this lemon to rub down the inside of your microwave. Let sit for a few minutes and wipe clean. See the chart above for more ingredient properties. Download all nine green cleaning recipes .
