All Natural

I have been on a search for natural and cheap house hold cleaners. My kitchen is always in need of cleaning I am a messy cook and the three year old needs food all the time. He made himself a peanut butter "samitch" one day.I had told him to wait until lunch that was only half and hour away, ptht that was way to long for him to wait . I never know what will find in my kitchen good, bad or ugly. So here are my favorite CHEAP cleaners for the kitchen.

Kitchen scrub.
My kitchen stove is normally a disaster , to clean it I use Baking soda and water. I wet the spill with a water spray bottle let sit 5 min and then sprinkle the B Soda over top of this and then lightly spray again with water. I let it sit for about 5 minuets  more. In that time I load laundry, change a diaper etc. Then wipe off . If it is stuck on add more water and let it sit. This combo makes a nice paste and you can clean with it just like liquid scrub and it doesn't scratch. I use it on my sink and counters as well. When using in the sink wash the B soda down with a 1/2 cup vinegar and you can clean up you disposal and pipes to.

Chrome Cleaner.
Equal parts water and vinegar.

Floor cleaner.
I mix water and vinegar in equal parts and spray it on as a spot cleaner.

You can add essential oils to make them smell nice and lemon oil makes it smell nice and lemon juice is a nice whitener if you have some staining. However simple these are you have to use a bit of elbow grease to make it to work. Remember no harsh chemicals to linger and you didn't have to buy any extra products. Those things are worth a bit of effort to me.
