Cleaning Products

I'm looking for a list of recipes to replace my cleaning products and so thought a book would be best, plus it might just include some other interesting bits in it too!

This is what I'm thinking of buying, can anyone recommend it or anything better?

You could possibly google all the info you need. Use acidic stuff for limescale like white vinegar or lemon juice. Bicarb of soda and borax are useful as well.
You could always see if your local library has a book on the subject, thus saving yourself some hard earned dosh.
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

Actually might I suggest trawling through back posts on here, I think together we have written a book on eco/frugal cleaning, although admittedly it takes a long time to do, but it's free :iconbiggrin: :study:
