Sarah Young uses vinegar and baking soda for cleaning products. “I have used these for many years. I like knowing that I am not adding weird chemicals to the environment and I also love knowing that my kitchen counters won’t contaminate my food because of residue from cleaning products. As a bonus, I am sure I have saved money over the years as well as not using lots of plastic containers. There are many specific recipes on the internet.”
