Hmmm. I was just thinking to add seltzer water, for cleaning wine out of carpets.

I just added a bunch more notes that I thought of, and now I'm thinking I should divide up the article into 1. home cleansers, and 2. bath and body supplies.

What do you guys think?

Anyone use vinegar or baking soda for house cleaning?

Oh, I use a lot of vinegar and baking soda for house cleaning. My 13 y.o. has asthma, and her doctor actually recommended that I primarily rely on those products for house cleaning.
I haven't compared it myself, but several of my friends tell me that vinegar is more effective than bleach for killing mold and keeping it from coming back. I just switched to vinegar anyway.
It really is cheaper to use these items - especially when you buy them in bulk.

I do prefer vinegar, and I don't mind the smell. To me, it smells clean.

I like using a water/vin dilution in a spray bottle.
