The Amish are known for making most of their own products. They like making things from scratch. And that includes cleaning agents they use in and around their homes for some Amish families. Their products are mostly green, non- toxic and friend for the environment. But they do use their fair share of ammonia, lard etc.
Lemon and lime juice can be used to remove stains from counters and food containers. The fresh fruit is also good for sanitizing your wooden cutting boards and for freshening up things around your home by removing bad odours.
Both white and apple cider vinegar is good for helping with getting things clean around your home. White vinegar helps with making your white clothes white. And apple cider vinegar is great for window cleaning. Vinegar is a good degreaser and can help to get rid of grime too.
