All Purpose Cleaner
Add 1 teaspoon of Borax, 1 teaspoon of liquid castile soap, half a teaspoon of baking soda and few drops of your favorite smelling essential oil – Orange and Lavender work well – to a glass spray bottle. Top it up with warm water give it a good shake, and you have a totally natural all purpose cleaner!
You can use this spray to safely clean cooking surfaces after use, it can be left to soak in to grime and dirt for 5 minutes and it will lift that dirt off of surfaces!
Plus, the fact that you can select the essentials oils that go in means you can pick a smell that you will enjoy in your home!
If you are seeing a build up of dirt and grease in your kitchen, you want something that is going to cut through all of that and leave your kitchen sparkling. This all-natural kitchen cleaner is just that something, you can also check out some other ideas here.
Take a cup of baking soda, add about a quarter cup of an environmentally safe liquid laundry soap and follow that with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Put it all in a Tupperware paste and carefully stir it all up into a paste. Voila! Smear some of the paste onto a cloth or sponge and get to work – it will laser its way through grease and baked in food spillages.
This is an area where it can be a particularly good idea to invest in making some natural cleaning products. After all cutlery, plates and cooking utensils all come into close contact with our food.
Even when they have been well rinsed off and dried, some remnants of the harsh chemicals found in commercial dish soap can still remain – and that can be bad news for you and your family.
So here is a nice simple recipe to make your own!
1-teaspoon kosher salt, half cup white wine vinegar, half teaspoon lemon juice, quarter cup of Environmentally safe soap suds (Dr Bronner is a trusted brand to use here).
Take all the ingredients and combine with about a quarter cup of warm, distilled water. Keep it in an old water bottle – or even a recycled dish soap bottle.
Once you made the switch to all natural cleaning products and seen that they provide the same great clean without all the harsh chemicals you’ll never look back!
