12 Natural Cleaners for Your Home

Slide 1

Cornstarch


A spoonful of this powder is all you need to sop up a grease spill on your carpet. Pour it directly on the spot and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes before vacuuming. The grease will be absorbed by the cornstarch and should come right up.

And if your little one's favorite stuffed animal is in dire need of a cleaning, try this: Place the toy in a plastic bag and sprinkle it with cornstarch. Shake the bag and let it sit for 5 minutes. Remove the toy, shake off the cornstarch, and all the dirt and grime will fall off, too!

Next: Cream of Tartar
