I would love it if you could share some "recipes" for homemade cleaning supplies.

Re: Cleaning supplies

Anything cleaning in particular? Vinegar, water & EO's work great for general cleaning.

Re: Cleaning supplies

I love castile soap spray. Couple of squirts of castile soap in a spray bottle, fill the rest with water. I get Dr. Bronner's tea tree oil or lavender soap because both TTO and lavender oil disinfect. Lately I've been putting a few drops of lemon oil in it. I use this to clean everything.

Re: Cleaning supplies

I love dr bronners soap too. Also vinegar and baking soda. Together they make a nice foam for cleaning the toilet and bath tub!

Re: Cleaning supplies

Orange, lemon, or grapefruit peels in a mason jar filled with vinger let sit about 2 weeks. Pour the liquid into a spray bottle and you have natural citrus cleaner

Re: Cleaning supplies

My favorite is simple old vinegar and water. I used it for everything! I also love Dr. Bronners and water. I like to keep things as simple as possible.
