An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from allergies, all of which can be made worse by breathing in toxins from cleaning products. This has opened up a market for a ton of non-toxic commercial cleaning brands, all of which tend to be rather expensive and sometimes hard to find. Luckily, thereโ€™s a great recipe for a homemade non-toxic all-purpose cleaner that will leave your house spotless without loading it with harmful toxins. All you have to do is mix 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda into 1/2 gallon of water. Store the mixture in a plastic container and use it to clean anything from bathroom fixtures to mirrors. As always, before applying any cleaning product to a surface, make sure to test it out on a small area to guarantee it yields the desired effect.
