Good morning, everyone! We have been enjoying some beautiful weather here lately, and maybe you’re getting a hint of spring wherever you live, as well! Good weather for opening up the windows and letting some fresh air in!
Anyway, if you read my first post for March, then you already know that we’re talking about natural cleaning options for the kitchen this month, and I’ve also already talked about store bought all purpose cleaners in my latest post, which you can check out here.
So today, I’m highlighting a few options for making all purpose cleaners at home, and I’ll be linking to posts from other bloggers for each one. I hope you enjoy. 😊
First up is a Heavy Duty Cleaner from lifenreflection.com. You may be able to mix up a bottle pretty quickly so long as you have some distilled water, essential oils, rubbing alcohol, and liquid Castile soap lying around.
Next is a super simple all natural cleaner which requires only water, vinegar, and essential oils. You can find the instructions from Suburban Simplicity.
Another all purpose cleaning recipe which requires only essential oils, vinegar, and water can be found at Our Oily House. The post I’m linking to also contains a list of essential oils good for cleaning, as well as the author’s personal favorite oil combinations!
If you don’t have any essential oils on hand, then you could try making your own Lemon Infused All Purpose Cleaner. It’s the third cleaner listed in the post I linked to above. I had never heard of doing this before, but you could give it a try!
Don’t like the smell of vinegar? Don’t worry! Here’s a recipe for Homemade Multipurpose Cleaner which does not contain vinegar, and uses Castile soap and essential oils.
That’s all for now, but I hope you’ll be encouraged to tackle your house cleaning, and to do so in a fresh, natural way!
Happy spring cleaning, everyone!
