After I realized all the chemicals in household cleaning products and that I could make healthier ones at home, I started making my own. One of the hardest ones to create was an all-purpose cleaner, but I finally found one that works well (and my kids have tested it hard!)
In a spray bottle mix:
- 1 tsp borax
- 1/2 tsp washing soda
- 1 tsp liquid castille soap
- essential oils as preferred- I use 4 drops lemon, 4 drops lavender and 10 drops orange
Add 2 cups of warm water. Distilled is best, but any water that has been boiled will work. Cover bottle and shake well. Use as needed. I use as bathroom cleaner, floor pre-treater, kitchen cleaner and on toys to disinfect.
