2 table spoons of Baking soda.
To remove stains on bath tubs and tiles, use it with a wet sponge. Baking soda is also good on grease, oil and color stained walls.
1/4 cup baking soda + 1/2 cup vinegar + 2 liters of water.

2 table spoons of salt + 5 large lemons.
Lemon juice is acidic in nature helping to get rid of bacteria and rust while the coarseness of salt helps to scrub off.Salt can be used to scrub out rust after leaving the item covered in lime juice for 2-3 hours.
2 table spoons of white vinegar + 4 cups of warm water.
This mix makes a good window cleaning agent.Use old, newspapers that are not colored to rub the formula on stained windows. Use non colored newspapers to clean the windows with the mix.Do not clean the windows when it’s excessively hot.Warm air causes formation of a cloudy appearance on the windows as the vinegar evaporates. The formula is effective on removing wall stickers, tags and adhesive wall papers.
1/2 cup baking soda + 1/2 cup vinegar + boiling water.
We all have times when our drains clog up and the plunger just won’t work.Put the baking soda in the drain, then the vinegar to cause a chemical reaction.Next, pour the boiling water after 20minutes lapse to clear the residue. Use warm water for plastic drains to avoid melting them down.
Sodium Borate + Sodium Carbonate.
Mix sodium borate and sodium carbonate in equal parts to form dish washer soap.Avoid cleaning aluminum utensils with this mix as washing soda corrodes it.
Lemon peels, baking soda, dried scented herbs.
These are used separately to deodorize the air and rid of musky smells in the house.When citrus peels are put in the vacuum bag, the oven or microwave, they leave refreshing scents when put on. Sprinkle baking soda on rugs and carpets hours before vacuuming to take of damp smells. Dried fragrance flowers and herbs can be left in corners.
Would you ever have thought bananas could clean too?Use little water to blend the peels into a paste.Use the paste to gently remove tarnish from your silver pieces of jewelry.Once done, clean the jewelry with water and polish with a cotton cloth.
