Whether you're worried about the chemicals you're using, wanting to save money, or hoping to save yourself from all those horrible added dyes and fragrances - these recipes are for you!
Step 1: Ingredients Used In These Recipes
The recipes use very few ingredients, most of which you should have around the house!
- baking soda
- rubbing alcohol or vodka
- castile soap
- white vinegar
- essential oils
- unflavored gelatin
Step 2: All Purpose Cleaner
What you'll need:
- a large spray bottle
- 24 oz (3 cups) water
- 1/8 to 1/4 C liquid castile soap
- 2 T white vinegar
- essential oils, like lemon, lavender or tea tree
Now you'll add the essential oils. I like adding 10 drops of lemon and 10 of tea tree!
I use this in my kitchen and my bathroom with great success! It's amazing at getting the stove top clean, and I love how clean it gets my counters and tabletops. Also great for cleaning the fridge.
I recently started scaling down the soap and adding more vinegar. I like it a lot. I'm using closer to 1/8 cup of castile soap now. :) The extra vinegar cuts down on soap scum/residue, and using less soap has been just as effective, but with less bubbles to clean up.
