In day 4 of our series we are going to make the product you will probably use most of the time. Your all natural all-purpose cleaner.
This is a very simple and plain product that is easy to make. It is very inexpensive and will work just as well as your bottle of store disinfectant.
I use this for cleaning my bathrooms, kitchens, and floors. It has many uses and works great. I no longer have to worry that my baby can’t touch something I have just wiped because he might get chemicals on his hands. It is natural and safe. I love it!
As with every new change in your life, this has some things that you will notice differently than your “name brand store cleaners.” At first spray it smells like vinegar but will dissipate and leave behind your essential oil smell. Also if you wipe it and it leaves streaks know that they will evaporate and leave nothing behind. The only flaws I notice.
Ready to make some???
Grab your spray bottle and items you purchased yesterday to make this cleaner. I make mine directly into the spray bottle, no need to make a mess.
Pour the following into the spray bottle in the order given:
- 4 cups of hot tap water
- 2 teaspoons of Dr.Bronners castile soap
- 2 teaspoons of borax
- 1 teaspoons of baking soda
- 15 drops of essential oils–I like to use orange or peppermint for this
- 1/4 teaspoon of tea tree oil
Next you carefully are going to add 5 Tablespoons of vinegar to the bottle. Add it slowly as it will fizz up. Continue adding until done, then fill the rest of the bottle with warm water.
Give the bottle a couple of turns and shakes and you are ready to use your product.
