Cleaning these four items without the use of chemicals is easier than it sounds. There are a lot more green cleaning products available now than ever before. You should clean all these items at least twice a year.
This article will show you how to clean each item.
When you make up your cleaning solution, use a glass spray bottle. Not only are they easy to fill and clean, but they are also safe for use with essential oils. Plastic will break down, but glass lasts longer.
Clean windows and sills with the spray cleaner described above. Start with the cleanest parts and proceed to the dirtiest—this will keep the cloth or sponge clean the longest. You can also have a pail on hand with warm water in it. This will allow you to rinse the sponge without having to run to a sink.
I recommend you clean windows in this order:
(The average home does 10- 12 loads of laundry a week!)
Dryer fires are one of the most common causes of house fires!
These can be cleaned with the same spray. For a quick clean, you can also use nontoxic wipes or a cloth soaked in the same cleaner.
Remove the hood fan covers and the grease filter. Most are reusable and can be cleaned.
Remove racks & spray
Remove fridge items
Sprinkle with baking soda
Attach a garden hose
Use the same spray& wipe clean
Let sit 20 min & rinse
Open valve and drain into a tub or to outside
Check for expired dates and put items back.
Wipe the top of the stove when done.
Disconnect hose turn on and let fill.
Wipe down the outside when it's all clean.

Hi Florish, Thank you. It does seem like like it's never ending. Just when i think there is nothing left to clean, it's time to start again. Just remember to take time for some too.

This has inspired me to clean even more thoroughly than I already do. I'm always cleaning but it seems the house is never actually clean. It's a process, I suppose. These are helpful tips.
