The chemicals found in many cleaning products can be extremely harsh and may be cause damage to your health! Here are a few easy solutions we make and use in our own homes!
Try this alternative homemade all purpose/glass cleaner:
Combine the following in a spray bottle: 4 ounces of vodka (buy the CHEAPEST you can find), 4 ounces of water, 12-24 drops of essential oil (peppermint or lavender are both amazing). Shake it up and clean away! It works wonders on just about every surface in the house...even mirrors and granite!
Try this alternative wood cleaner/polisher:
Combine the following in a spray bottle: 4 ounces of water, 4 ounces of vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Shake it up. Spray directly on surface or rag and rub clean. Make sure to occasionally shake your solution because as we all know: oil and water/vinegar separate!
Try this alternative toilet/tub/shower cleaner:
Combine the following in a squirt bottle: 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of Castile soap, 12-24 drop of essential oil (grapefruit, lemon or orange all work beautifully). Shake it up until all ingredients are fully mixed.
Happy Spring Cleaning!
