This is one of my favorite parts of the natural living movement. The thing that I like the most is that I can use most of these products for my home AND my beauty care. It is so easy to save costs when it comes to cleaning products. Here are some of my recommendations:
Castile Soap which is made from vegetable oil rather than petroleum. It's gentle, dissolves more completely, and doesn't form hard scum. Dr. Bronner's soap kills 99.9% germs and it is all natural organic soap. When combined with tea tree oil it works as a natural disinfectant for cleaning purposes.
It can be used for:
Baking Soda has so many uses but we will be touching on just a few. It is also a very low cost item. You can purchase a huge bag at a Costco or Sams for about $5.00. It is environmentally safe and has been used for the last 150 years.
Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) is not only for medical issues in the home. Another product that has many purposes. It is a powerful oxidizer that is stronger than chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and potassium permanganate according to H2O2.com. Always check a spot first before trying it on large surfaces to make sure it does not stain certain materials.
Vinegar - instead of using it for food (use Raw Apple Cider for this) you can use it for a green clean in your home, It's an acid so it dissolves soap and grease. Don't worry the smell once dried will go away. Mix one cup of water with one cup of vinegar in a spray bottle, you can also add a little essential oil for a nice smell.
Quick, Easy and Efficient is the new way to go!!!
