Household cleaners can be expensive to buy, and contain chemicals many consider harmful to the environment and user. So here are a few basic all-natural cleaner recipes. These recipes are given to me by Angela Andres from ECO Clean 4 Life in Clio. Angela cleans businesses and houses with these more natural products.
Carpet and Rug Freshener: 1 box of baking soda and a few drops of your choice of essential oils. Add more or less for scent strength. Mix with a fork, sprinkle on carpets or rugs. Leave set for about 20 minutes, and then vacuum.
Glass Cleaner: 1/4 cup of vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon dish soap, and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Works great on chrome fixtures as well as glass.
All Purpose Cleaner: 2 Tbls Borax desolved in a cup of boiling water. Let cool, and then mix in 3 Tbls vinegar, one ounce of Doctor Bronners soap. Mix into an empty clean spray bottle and fill the rest of the way up with water. You can add a few drops of any essential oils for scent that you like. Tea Tree oil works as a disinfectant.
