Do you have a mildew buildup in your home? Or are you looking to prevent mildew? You can combat mildew buildup with ingredients you have around your home. Many of the ingredients in store-bought mildew cleaners contain hazardous solvents and petroleum based chemicals, which may contaminate ground water and present a problem to waste water treatment facilities.

Here is a recipe to remove mildew:

 

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon powdered laundry detergent
1 quart chlorine bleach
2 quarts water

1. Combine all the ingredients in a pail.

2. Wearing rubber gloves, wash off the mildew.

So go ahead and whip up a batch of homemade mildew cleaner. It will cost you only pennies and keep your family safer too.

Are you tired of spending so much money on things like furniture polish? Do you want to free your home from harmful chemicals? You can be frugal and live green by making your own furniture polish.

Here are three recipes for making your own homemade furniture polish:

Recipe I

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
1 tablespoon boiled linseed oil
1 tablespoon turpentine

1. Combine the ingredients in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake until blended.

2. Dampen a cloth with cold water and wring it out until it’s dry.

3. Saturate the cloth with the mixture and apply sparingly to a small area at a time.

4. Let dry for about 30 minutes, then polish with a soft cloth. This mixture gets gummy as it sits, so make just enough for one day’s work.

 

Recipe II

Ingredients:

White vinegar
Lemon juice

1. Combine equal parts white vinegar and lemon juice in a bowl or spray bottle.

2. Use a clean cloth to rub a small amount of the polish into your furniture.

3. Wipe dry with another cloth.

1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice

1. Combine olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl or spray bottle.
