Greener Cleaners: DIY Wiper Fluid
Tip #1: Make your own wiper fluid.
Next time you run out of windshield-wiper fluid, think twice before running to the store. Traditional wiper fluid, due to the main ingredient, methyl alcohol, is extremely toxic when ingested — a danger for kids and pets. Instead, use vinegar and water to clean your windshield in the summer months or in warmer climes (the mixture can freeze if it's too cold). Another option is a mixture of water, isopropyl alcohol, and dishwashing soap. If you're in an experimenting mood, try mixing a green cleaner you already have at home with water to see how well it works.
Tip #2: Natural stain removers.
Tip #4: Deodorize and shine your shoes.
