Below I have posted some of my favorite DIY natural, non toxic, and cleaning recipes:
Bamboo re-usable paper towels
Product recommendation: I use the Norwex floor system on my tile and hardwood, it is the EASIEST and quickest way to clean the floor. And the floors dry super fast. It comes with a dry pad for essentially dusting the floor and a wet pad….for hot water. No cleaner necessary!! The microfiber works great to clean. When you ring the microfiber pad out in between stroke you will be astonished on how much dirt comes out. For a local rep contact me I know a great one.
1: DIY floor cleaner:
1/4 cup Castile soap
2 gallons hot water
(1/4 cup distilled white vinegar, if the floor is greasy….as a rinse after)
10 drops Essential oil of your choice (optional). Today I used Medieval (because of the anti bacterial, fungal, and viral benefits), but Lavender, lemon, orange, Peppermint are all great too.
**Castile soap is must have for any house hold. I do the majority of my cleaning with Castile soap. Here are SOME of the things you can use Castile Soap for:
ANY SURFACE CLEANER (GRANITE, HARD WOOD, TILE, LINOLEUM, ETC)
2: **3 EASY and CHEAP all purpose cleaners**
All purpose cleaner:
1 part white vinegar
1 part distilled water
10 drop EO
Peroxide in a spray bottle (they sell it in pharmacy with a spray attachment on it), must be in a dark bottle!
This is the best and cheapest cleaner, I love it for bathrooms!
Amber glass bottle…got mine from Amazon. (You can also use a regular spray bottle, this one can just be used over again)…and it looks cool
1/4-1/2 cup rubbing alcohol (depending on bottle size, mine is small so I used 1/4cup)
1/4-1/2 tsp castile soap (again depending on bottle size)
5-10 drops EO of your choice
Distilled Water (fill the rest up)
5: Toilet/tub Scrub:
Step 1: Few drops of Castile Soap
Sprinkle of Baking soda…scrub…flush
Step 2: White Vinegar
EO (few drops)…scrub…leave or flush
6: DIY laundry soap:
2 cups warm water
1 cup baking soda
1/3 cup salt
1 cup castile soap (I use lavender)
10-15 drops EO (I use lavender)
Combine: water, baking soda, salt in jug and shake. Add Castile soap and EO.
Use 1/4 cup for each load. Shake before using, this is a sud free soap!
