Green Recipe : Everyday multi-surface cleaner

Take an empty washing-up liquid bottle or similar and fill it about 10th full of washing-up liquid detergent, preferably an environmentally friendly one such as Ecover. Add a similar amount of white distilled vinegar. Fill up the rest of the bottle with plain water. Use this squirted onto a damp cloth for wiping down surfaces. Dilute further if it seems too foamy.

This cuts through grease very well and deodorises too. I've used it on sealed wood - such as kitchen cupboard doors and the kitchen table with no problems at all. I'm not sure I'd use it on the best polished mahogany table though!

Chew On This!

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75 percent fo this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace....You are among the top 8 percent of the worlds wealth.

If you woke up this morning with more health than are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the lonellness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation...You are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a religious meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...You are more blessed than three billion people in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married you are very rare, even in the United States. If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truley thankful...You are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you...You are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have a good day and count your blessings!!
