Chemical-Free Cleaners Hiding in Your Pantry

Vanilla Extract
Clean the microwave and leave it smelling sweet with this household trick! Mix 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a microwave-safe container, and zap it on high for five minutes. When it’s done, remove the container and wipe down the interior of the oven. Any gunk should slide right off.

Coffee Filter
Wipe down all TVs, computers, other screens and mirrors with a coffee filter (minus the brew grounds!), and voila, dust-free!

It’s a staple for gravies, stews…and carpet stains! Just mix it with water to make a paste and treat on the spot. Its absorbing power will soak up the stain.

Baking Soda
Mix with water to create a natural cleaner that’s great for everything from dirty sneakers to scuffs on walls. We love to use it to clean stainless steel in the kitchen without scratching. Sprinkle baking soda onto a clean, damp sponge or cloth, and wipe the sink clean; then rinse thoroughly.
