If you've not switched from commercial cleaners to vinegar and water yet, it's time.
It's the one simple switch that will make your home healthier, your lungs cleaner and your wallet fatter. It's easy to create all the cleaning solutions you need with water, vinegar, and just a few other household products.
Get a big jug of vinegar and keep it and a glass spray bottle on hand. Mix together:
1 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
10 drops lemon essential oil
2-3 tsp natural dish detergent (optional)
This is all you need for a cleaner that works for your kitchen, bathroom, and floors. I pull it out every day and use it with a micro fibre cloth to disinfect my countertops. You can also add a few drops of orange and lavender essential oils for invigorating scent.
Make up this cleaner and forget all the many bottles of different cleaners that are filled with toxic chemicals and are a waste of money. (BONUS: the formula and free downloadable label are available in my Resource Den - just click here to join and download)
Other ingredients that come in handy are various essential oils, olive oil, Borax, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda for scrubbing hard-to-clean mold or grime and removing stubborn stains.
I've got the formulas you need, using these common ingredients, all ready for you to print on a pretty label for each cleaner. Print and paste or tape them onto a reusable spray bottle and just fill up every time you need. I used both re-used glass and plastic spray bottles, covered them in a pretty cardboard paper, then put my label over top. Click below for the download.
