Protect Your Dog From Toxic Cleaners
White vinegar is a wonderful non toxic product.
Most important are the floors in your house.
You and your dogs absorb products thru the feet/pads so its best to use none toxic products on floors.
I mix 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water for mopping. I have also read 1/4 cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water.
I fill a spray bottle and keep it on hand. Its easy to spray the floor for mopping. Or you can buy a mop (like Swiffer sp) that allows you to refill the container. Swiffer mops don’t have this option. You have to keep buying their refills.
1 cup vinegar and 5 cups water to clean windows.
Use full strength to rid kitchen containers of stale food odors.
Dilute vinegar with water and boil on the stove to remove cooking odors.
Moisten a paper towel with vinegar and wrap around faucets to remove hard water deposits.
Clean your dishwasher: fill a bowl with vinegar and place on bottom rack of dishwasher with no other dishes in the machine and run the cycle, turning off the machine before the drying cycle.
I read that when vinegar comes in contact with copper or lead it van create a deadly poison, so store vinegar in glass containers or the original jug it comes in.
