    Does anyone use alternative (vinegar, baking soda, etc.) cleaning products around the house?

    Yes, definitely. I use these products most of the time (about 80%). I love being natural and not adding chemicals to my home.

    Same here. They actually work really well on most things. I also use regular cleaners sometimes too, but I'm moving more and more to all natural alternative cleaning.

    All the time. Hydrogen peroxide to disinfect, white vinegar to deodorize, microfiber and warm water to clean, salt to scrub pans.

    Yes, and I have done so for years...................long before the terms, "green, natural, and chemical free" were added to the modern day thinking.

    I was not aware that vinegar and baking soda were alternative cleaning products.  Honestly, the cleaning products pushed at supermarkets rarely works as well as baking soda and vinegar.  Admittedly, I am a single guy who is not supposed to know how to clean; but, no one was cleaning for me.

    I do all the time. If it won't come clean with vinegar, I rinse and try scrubbing with baking soda. Baking soda leaves a film on glass, but vinegar leaves everything sparkling and shining, from counter tops to sinks to expensive glassware. I also use baking soda as a deodorizer and help for those nasty set-in carpet stains (test in a small area first). Nothing works better for your money than vinegar and an old toothbrush to get water deposits off of your sinks and countertops. Just spray some on, let it sit until it quits bubbling (or 10 minutes, whichever is longer) then scrub the little spots that escape the sponge around the faucet with the toothbrush, rinse, and repeat if necessary to remove hard water stains. Note that vinegar doesn't remove the green copper stains, however.
