Non-Brutal Household Cleaner - Kitchen/Bathroom/etc

What you need: 

2 cups water
1 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons baking soda (sodium bi-carbonate)
4 drops citronella oil
4 drops tea tree oil
4 drops lavender oil

What you do: 

Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle (watch out, vinegar and bi-carb froth up - remember volcanoes in science class in 3rd grade?) and use as a cleaner around the house.
You can use this to wash your dishes also, but leave out the Citronella Oil and be sure to rinse your dishes afterwards.

I use this all the time now, minus the oils. It's a good stove top cleaner. Just gotta let it soak on stubborn oil for a few minutes, and use a little elbow grease. It also shines up stainless steel! Thank you for this!
