good things come in threes.

We love our cat, we really do.

But she sure can piss us off.  Literally.  She finds peeing on her bed/carpet/clothes/bedspreads/you name it, as a way to get back at us.  Once we were worried she was sick.  The vet calls it a "behavioral issue".  Either way, it's the pits.

And, finding a eco-friendly carpet cleaner that could knock-out that gnarly pet odor was hard.  Step in baking soda, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide.  The trifecta of cleaners.  Since having to deal with the child, I've come to find what my grandmother's already knew- the power of these three ingredients.

From a weed killer, to a fresh flower saver- these three do it all.  I've found a few great sites with tons-o-tips on uses:

Baking Soda's the best!

Hooray for Hydrogen Peroxide!

Victorious vinegar!

Green guru Sophie Uliano, author of Gorgeously Green, made these great videos:

Cheap and effective way to do oh-so-many things?  I'll take it!

  1. I read the book but hadn't seen any of the videos. They are great! I made the all purpose cleaner from the book last week. It's great.
