Tips & Treats

Green Cleaning

There is so much talk these days about using and making green cleaning products from your home. I think the two major benefits to using “green products” is firstly you are eliminating many chemical products from your home and secondly you can create cleaning products with everyday household items at a fraction of the cost you would pay for store bought items.

Doing a Google search for green cleaning products left me quite overwhelmed so I thought I would just compile a could of cleaning tips and list a few useful links.

 

From what I can see, the basic items you need are:

A cleaned spray bottle

Baking soda

Lemon juice

White Vinegar

Essential Oils (eg. Tea Tree, Lavender etc)

Natural Liquid soap

 

I think I’m going to try out these simple one:

ALL-PURPOSE SPRAY CLEANER

Mix up 2 parts vinegar and 1 part baking soda in about 1/2 gallon of water. This works well for shining chrome fixtures, shower stalls, and removing hard water stains. Add 5-10 drops of essential oils like tea tree, lavender, or lemon for a natural fragrance and additional disinfecting qualities.

ALL-PURPOSE DISINFECTANT

Mix 2 cups water, a few drops of natural soap, and 15 drops each of tea tree and lavender organic essential oil. You can spray this on all kinds of home surfaces like sinks and toilets, countertops, walls and more.

 

Happy cleaning!
