Spring is here, which means warmer weather, sandals, bright prints… and spring cleaning. While it is daunting, I always look forward to that fresh, clean-slate feeling that comes with a clean house!
As many of you know, most popular cleaning products are full of harsh chemicals. I really didn’t like using them in my home, so I decided to make my own! Not only is it affordable, it’s also easy! Here’s my recipe for the perfect all purpose home cleaner—the green way!
1 part vinegar
1 part water
1 part Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap — I like the peppermint!
3-4 drops of your favorite essential oil — I’m currently loving YoungLiving's Lemongrass!
And that’s it! And, for a great wood cleaner, follow the above recipe and add 1 part olive oil into the mix. I would also substitute YoungLiving’s cedarwood essential oil instead of the lemongrass.
