My shopping list
White vinegar, baking soda, olive oil (which let me add I am obsessed with! Natural moisturizer, no more dry hands after cleaning), essential oils (lavender and jasmine~ I feel like I am at a spa with these scents) and plastic squirt bottles (Simply Spritz is what I used, which I found at Wal-Mart).
Pretty all Purpose
Surface cleaner that kills germs
**Recipe for 20oz bottle**
– 17oz water
– 3oz part white vinegar
-15-20 drops of essential oil (if desired)
I used this cleaner – in the kitchen, bathrooms, on windows and counters and toys. (My daughter sprayed it on everything; our dog now has a floral smell…)
Wicked Wood Cleaner
Polishes and removes germs
**Recipe for a 6 oz squirt bottle**
-2 tablespoons white vinegar
– 3/4 cup olive oil
– 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
– 1/4 cup warm water
I used this on all wood furniture, love the shine it leaves without a greasy or waxy residue.
Fabulous Carpet Freshener
– Use a container that has opening on the lid for the powder to flow out of, I used a glass cheese holder
– Fill with baking soda
– Add 20 drops of essential oil and stir around
– Shake on to carpet and let sit for 15min then vacuum up.
I have a dog and this kicks butt on removing the smell of dog from my carpets, I even used it on my throw pillows to freshen them up.
