Sweet Home Life * Homemade Natural Cleaner




Cleaning is, of course, a never-ending job. As with all tasks around the home, my philosophy is that it is always easier and more enjoyable if you have a good tool and good products to work with for your job. We try to keep things natural and non-toxic when it comes to cleaning our home so I make this recipe for my kitchen and bathroom cleaner. This all-purpose all natural spray cleaner recipe is easy to make & cheap as can be. The vinegar in it is an anti-viral, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal so it kills all those little bugs. It is also very safe to use around the kitchen & your children.

Items needed:
-32 oz Spray bottle
-8to 10 drops Dr. Bronner's castile peppermint, lavender or almond liquid soap - 5 to 10 drops of our favorite essential oils for added fresh scent
-1/2 cup white vinegar
-2 teaspoons Borax
Combine all ingredients in spray bottle fill bottle the rest of the way with water then tip bottle back and forth gently until ingredients are mixed. Less that a $1 a bottle to make. You can't beat that!
Did you know that Borax is a natural mineral that is used to kill ants & fleas and is anti-fungal.
