Spring cleaning time is almost here! Following are some of our favorite easy-to-make recipes for earth friendly cleaning.
- All-purpose Cleaner – 1:1 ratio of water and vinegar, 4 drops of essential oil (optional), a drop of dish soap. It’s a great window cleaner! (You will need to use it 2-3 times before it will cut through the wax build-up from commercial products, after which you can stop using the dish soap). (The vinegar smell goes away when it is dry.)
- Soft-Scrub – 1 c. baking soda, 1/4 c. liquid castile soap, 2 tsp. vegetable glycerin (as a preservative), 2-4 drops antibacterial essential oil such as lavender, tea tree, or rosemary (optional). mix and store in a sealed glass jar.
- Natural Disinfectant Spray – 1 c. distilled water, 1/2 c. vinegar, 2-4 drops antibacterial essential oil such as lavender, tea tree, or rosemary.
