How to Make Homemade Vinegar Cleaning Solutions
You can make A LOT of different vinegar mixtures, but there are certain formulations for certain cleaning purpose. Let’s take a look:
For Floor Cleaning
To make an excellent vinegar-based floor cleaner, mix one cup of baking soda and white vinegar with a single tablespoon of homemade dish soap. Combine the mixture with two gallons of hot water.
Be careful as vinegar and baking soda react with each other, which could make a huge mess. Make sure to mix them slowly. This cleaning solution is perfect for mopping your floors.
