When you visit my home, you’ll know that my husband and I are “clean freaks”. Just because I’m a clean freak, doesn’t mean I can’t clean naturally.
In my last post I shared how I moved from cleaning with chemicals to natural cleaning.
(Yes. I spent one Saturday morning tossing all my chemical cleaners into the trash) replacing them with natural alternatives.
I want to share with you some tried and true recipes that I use to clean our home naturally and save money too!
I use this one on my cook top!
1 1/2 C. Distilled or Purified Water
1 1/2 Caps Young Living Household Cleaner
2 Drops Young Living Lemon Essential Oil
Mix all in bottle, Shake Well Before Using
Place into Glass Container with Lid. (I save my glass artichoke heart containers, wash up and use)
1 Cup Baking Soda
6 Drops Young Living Lemon Essential Oil
Makes your white porcelain sinks sparkle (do NOT use on Stainless Steel)
Homemade Dusting Spray
1 Cup Distilled or Purified water
1/4 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

My son and daughter-in-law use this one on nearly everything because it is safe to use around my grandson.
