a few tips to reduce chemicals in the Garden

Bi-Carb soda is a very useful product, and in a recent ad for toothpaste I noticed it was mentioned.
It is so cheap, and 2 Tablespoons full of it , combined with 1 teaspoon of olive or cooking oil, with 1 teaspoon of detergent, mixed into 2 litres of water prevents fungicide on plants.

Bi-carb soda can be used on a cloth as a great cleaner and abrasive.
and to avoid blocked drains, drop a handful of bi-card soda into the drain , and follow up with a half cup of vinegar. leave for an hour.

and so is vinegar

If you have Algae on your fences or paths, try this.
Mix 1 part of vinegar to 3 parts of water and spray on.
Rinse off after a few minutes.
