Ready To Get Started!
Now that we have cleaned out all of the toxic chemicals in your house, it’s now time to build a new group of things to use to clean your house from top to bottom. I choose to use as few cleaning solutions as possible so I use one that will clean many things. I have a bottle of multi purpose cleaner that disinfect the surfaces I clean. I will use this product everywhere I can.
I get my bottles from Wal-Mart in the cleaning section. I usually buy the small 12 oz bottle there about a $1 each. I use Avery labels to make my labels. You can go to avery.com and make your labels just put in your Avery label number and create your label and print it. It’s that easy. I put the ingredients and directions on my labels. I use the large shipping labels and just stick them on the bottle.
Be sure to label the cleaning supplies you make! Don’t forget this step!
All Purpose Cleaner
2 tsp. Borax
1/4 cup vinegar
2 1/2 cups hot water
6 drops Tea tree Oil
25 Drops of your favorite essential oil
For extra cleaning power mix in 1/4 teaspoon of liquid soap like Dr. Bronner’s or Mrs. Myer’s
Be sure to mix in a container you do not cook or eat out of. Then pour into a labeled spray bottle.
Tub and Tile Cleaner
1 2/3 cup Baking soda
1/2 cup liquid soap
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar
- Mix all ingredients, adding the vinegar after the other ingredients are well mixed. (if you add the vinegar too early it will react with the baking soda).
- Immediately apply, wipe and scrub.
1 cup Borax
1/4 cup vinegar
Pour both borax and vinegar into the toilet before going to bed. In the morning, scrub and flush.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 Cup vinegar
1 cup water
25-30 drops essential oil
Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle and mix. Be sure to mix while you are using it so all the ingredients stay mixed well. This also repels dust better than anything I have ever used. I don’t dust nearly as often since I started using this spray.
Here are the cleaners I use. I hope they work as well for you as they work for me.
