To create a scented all-purpose cleaner, combine equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Add a couple of drops of lavender or lemon essential oils for a delightful scent.

Shake to combine the ingredients then spray onto surfaces such as glass, windows and mirrors for effective cleaning.

Baking soda and vinegar are the two ingredients to keep your oven grease-free. Mix baking soda with a little bit of water to form a thick paste. Remove the oven racks then spread the paste on the interior of the oven, taking care to avoid the heating elements. Let the paste sit for a while. Then use a mixture of water and white vinegar to spray on the dried patches. The foaming reaction will help to break down grease and residue. Wipe off gently with a damp cloth.
