Natural Cleaning Recipes…A No Brainer!

Here are a few natural cleaning recipes that I use & love…cuts down on cost of cleaning products & their chemical ickiness….
Toilet Bomb (Remove cat)

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup white vinegar

5 – 10 drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree) essential oil

Combine all ingredients in at least a quart-size container. Add vinegar to the baking soda to create the explosion your kids are going to love! Dump into toilet. You can dump all ingredients directly into the toilet but explosion isn’t as dynamic…hehe your choice

Speaking of the dreaded toilet…to cut down on the Eau de stinko toilette, I use this…

Toilet Paste

-¾ cup baking soda
-Enough liquid castile soap to form a paste
-5 drops tea tree oil
-5 drops of lemon, lemongrass, or sweet orange oil (optional)

Directions: Add liquid castile soap to baking soda slowly until paste is formed. Then proceed to add antiseptic essential oils. Apply scrub to sponge for use on surface to be cleaned. It’s perfect to clean where floor & toilet meet.

Basic Sink Cleaning

Sprinkle baking soda, about 1 tablespoon, in a wet sink. Add 1-2 drops of the lemon oil. Scrub the sink with a damp, not wet, sponge or cloth. Rinse thoroughly.

Mirror Bright (Move over Windex!)

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup water

8 drops citrus oil (Lemon, Wild Orange, Lime, Grapefruit)

Combine all ingredients in a plastic spray bottle and shake well before use.

      Yes I do…darn I should have had this in Blog. This is what I use & it works awesome….
      12 ounceswhite vinegar
      12 ounces liquid, blue dawn detergent

      Heat vinegar in microwave until hot and pour into squirt bottle.
      Add the Dawn soap. Put the lid on and gently shake.
      You now have a powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.
      Hope this helps whatthemom.
