Welcome to the first post in a series on Green Cleaning. Green cleaning means to use ingredients that are environmentally friendly and safe for human health.
When we started to move towards a healthier lifestyle, one of the first toxins I removed from our home was our cleaning products.
Have you ever scrubbed the bathtub while squinting your eyes, taking breaks to run out of the room to get away from the smell, and fanning out as much of the toxins as possible? No? Ok, maybe that was just me….
But really, the best part about homemade cleaners is that there is no strong chemical smell. It took me some time to get used to the vinegar smell in the homemade cleaners but it’s grown on me. Plus, the more essential oils you add, the less you smell the vinegar anyways!
I love this All-Purpose Cleaner because it’s quick, easy, and effective. Melaleuca Oil is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial while Lemon Oil is a disinfectant.
I use this All-Purpose a lot! It’s great for cleaning the dining table, kitchen & bathroom counter-tops, the refrigerator, spots cleaning the kitchen floor, and more.
Do you use any homemade cleaners? Leave a comment below letting me know what you’ve tried!
