A few years ago I was sitting in my kitchen waiting for my sister to pick me up to go to the mall. On my table was a bottle of cleaner. Being bored I picked it up and started to read what was inside. I am by no means a genius, but I can read..... But not this bottle! I had not clue what 90% of the stuff inside my cleaner was, and here I was spraying it all over the place. Places that my kids and pets come into contact with all the time. Now don't get me wrong just because I couldn't pronounce them doesn't mean they were all bad. So I did some research and found out which were okay and which ones to avoid. That is how I got started making my own cleaners, detergent and so much more.
The reason I like making my own is because I know exactly what is in everything I use.
With that being said lets move on to my DIY all purpose cleaner
What you need:
1/2tsp washing soda
1 tsp castile soap
30 drops of essential oils
2 cups warm water
1 empty bottle
Place borax, washing soda, castile soap in the bottle
Add the two cups of water
Add the oil (You can use one oil or several. I used lavender, lemon, orange, cedarwood and a few drops of tea tree oil. This depends on what you want your cleaner to smell like.)
Mix it all together and you are done!
I use this one everything, except my granite counter tops.
I hope you like this cleaner as much as I do! Happy cleaning!!
