I have started using baking soda instead of bleach...............1dry cup per load....with white wash I use warm water with dark clothes with lines of white of color I use cold water...........It does not stink like bleach and it safe for your hands.....I also use that to clean the shower, tub and sink, I use it dry with a wet sponge....just wet the tub and clean away.  If you have a clogged sink...............use 1 cup of dry baking soda into the sink opening and then 1 cup white vinegar and a kettle of boiling water then flush with warm water. It going to fizz up.   Do this once a month on the first day.  It will keep your sinks fresh & clean smelling, cleans out the pipes and helps the bacteria in the septic or cess pool work better.  I also put old yeast down it and any juice from canned fruit.  That keeps it going and working better.

I stopped using bleach, I only use clorox-cleanup for the toilet.

We do a lot of baking and we use a special cotton cloth to make struedel.  Hubby wanted it super clean.....OK said I.......and 2 cups of baking soda with regular detergent & hot water and every grease stain came out.  When our grandparents & great-grandparents were living bakingsoda & vinegar where the only things used.  They did not have the chemicals that are used today.
