no chemicals

One of the most basic human desires is for a clean place to live, sleep and eat. This fundamental need is something that can really drive our behavior. Yet surprisingly, what we each think or perceive of as clean still varies widely among many different people!

The interesting part is that in our quest for a clean, fragrant home we regularly use noxious chemicals! The kind that could physically harm us. These chemicals only seem to work to mentally assure us that our environment is indeed really clean. In fact, in reality they don’t do a better job than natural cleaners!

We have a solution! Let us teach you an ultra-quick, cheap and easy way to make “industrial”-strength household cleaner for every need using natural ingredients.

All you need are the following basic household items and you can get a complete, natural clean that is as good, if not better, than your store-bought chemical cleaner not to mention much cheaper.

Ingredients:

  • Baking Soda – is an effective deodorizer. It's also an effective antiviral agent and surfactant that eliminates grease and grime. It has disinfectant properties and can be used as a fungicide.
  • Vinegar – the natural acidity in simple white vinegar makes it a great antibacterial and is a kind of solvent that is great to eliminate grease and scum.
  • Water – best is distilled or boiled water. Water without minerals is best. You do not know all the things that are dissolved and in your water supply (chlorine, fluoride, magnesium, phosphorous and calcium among a very few)!!!
  • Essential Oil – of course we are conditioned to think “Lemony fresh” when we imagine clean, so adding any citrus essential oils is perfect. Furthermore, please feel free to add tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender and lemongrass as well, which are well known to kill germs and bacteria easily and completely.   

Instructions:

  1. Take 2 liters (two quarts) of water and put it in a bucket.
  2. Next put 2 tablespoons of Baking soda in the water
  3. Put two table spoons of vinegar into the mixture
  4. To maintain a 0.5-1% ratio of essential oil you will need about 5-10ml of essential oil total. This is going to make this cleaner extremely powerful!
  5. Mix it all together. This will be enough to clean your entire kitchen floor and the bathroom as well.
chemicals are toxic

Additional Tip: Before you start cleaning the floor, fill two 500ml spray bottles to use on counter tops and other hard to reach places. Spray the stove and other appliances and wipe the grease away. This all-purpose cleaner is highly effective and can be used for months if kept out of the sunlight.If you follow these steps to make this cleaner we are confident that you will not to use anything else! What’s more, you won’t need to buy any other harmful bottles of cleaner from the store….ever again!

    I just read the article about oils and vinegar, water, and baking soda. I use Norwex Towels and I think this maybe something to look into when cleaning with just water there is not nice chemical free smell after words. With your oils it maybe something for you to check with them and see if you can come up with something for them to look at. FYI
