A few months ago when my 3rd child was born I decided that it was probably a good idea to have someone help me clean my house occasionally in order to avoid sheer insanity. At least temporarily. Well, after some research I found a wonderful family that has a local business called Inner Spaces Eco Services, and not only are they wonderful people who have become my friends, but they also make all of their own freshly-scented cleaning products. This got me inspired to follow suit, as I had been thinking about it for a while, and now I had someone to show me how. It’s a lot easier than I imagined, and I love the natural smell and sparkling clean that these natural, chemical-free cleaning products provide. Here’s what you’ll need:
8oz white distilled vinegar
2 Tbsp liquid castile soap (optional)
20 drops lavender essential oil
10 drop tea tree oil
1 spray bottle (you can reuse one you already have)
Simply mix all the ingredients in your spray bottle and clean away! You can change up the essential oils if you prefer a rosemary or lemon scent for example instead of the tea tree or lavender. If you’re interested in making your own products at home, here’s some exciting news. Mountain rose herbs is offering a free give-away for an abundant supply of these natural cleaning supplies, as well as some great recipes for cleaning products.
