Four Homemade Cleaners

by Nick

One of Betsy’s goals for the year was to ditch some of our standard cleaners that we use around the house and make them! Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about this project mainly because I wasn’t sure that homemade cleaners would really get the job done.

And my lovely wife is a bit of a neat freak so there’s no way she would use something that didn’t perform well.

So a couple of weekends ago she went out and bought a few staple ingredients and some empty spray bottles and we spent a few minutes mixing up four different homemade cleaners that have since replaced 90% of the cleaners we use around the house.

For the last few weeks we’ve been using them now and I’ve been so impressed by how well they are working, I thought I’d share them all with you in case any of you are interested in ditching the chemicals.

The Cost of Cleaning. The thing about homemade cleaners is that the initial start-up costs might seem a bit high. A tiny bottle of lavender oil (.5 ounces), for example, will run you $7-$8. But the thing to remember is that for each batch of cleaning solution, you’ll be using literally just a few drops of oil.

I would guess we spent around $30 on our homemade cleaning supplies for these four solutions, but now we have enough supplies to last us years. By the time we run out of lavender oil, for example, our cost per bottle for these cleaners will be reduces to cents.

ingredients

Basic stuff.

Really Clean Cleaning. After using these solutions for a few weeks, what I’m most impressed with is their cleaning power. They really work. Not only do they work, but I get the strange impression that they are even cleaner than the standard products.

When you clean a counter with the all-purpose cleaner it’s squeaky clean and the whole room smells awesome, not chemical at all. I hate to say this, but having these easily accessible actually makes me like cleaning. DON’T TELL MY WIFE.

My ultimate decision to post on these solutions was just because they worked surprisingly well.

The Basics. Betsy and I did some research on books for home cleaning solutions and I would recommend these two to anyone who wants to learn more:

Green Clean including vinegar, citrus fruits and baking soda (I guess unavailable for now on Amazon)

Homemade: How to Make 100’s of Everyday Products

As far as ingredients go, a good number of ingredients you will probably have on hand already at home. Things like vinegar, baking soda, citrus, etc. Those are easy.

The tricky stuff are these items:

close up

Some of these are a bit expensive.

Most of the recipes involve castile soap and a few drops of essential oils. These are the pricey items and the ones that you won’t need to buy very often even if you make a ton of these solutions.

For the recipes I’m giving in this post, you’ll need the below items. You can find all of these at your local supermarket or health food store or you can grab them from Amazon. I’ve included links to the amazon pages.

Castile Soap – An all-natural soap that’s surprisingly strong. A few drops go a long way. We like the lavender scent, but they have others available.

Lavender Oil – A natural anti-bacterial oil that smells wonderful.

Tea Tree Oil – A natural oil that cleanses and disinfects.

Washing Soda – Sodium Carbonate which is just a strong base that works great as a laundry detergent. It has a million uses around the house.

Mixing the Solutions. If you’re going to do this, definitely buy new, clean plastic bottles. Don’t use old bottles as the trace chemicals in them might react badly.

Also, I’d recommend getting some labels because while they are all different, these solutions all look a bit similar.

The Recipes!

Let’s start with an easy one.

Lavender Anti-Bacterial Spray

- 1 Cup water
– 20 drops lavender essential oil

Easy right?! It’s smells great and lavender is very high in linalool which is naturally antibacterial.

adding oil

Just a few drops…

The next recipe is the one that we use the most which is the all-purpose cleaner. It’s our daily cleaner now on everything from counters to floors.

One note about this one is that it will bubble A LOT (think high school science volcano) so make sure you leave plenty of room in your bottle for an eruption and mix it over the sink just in case.

All-Purpose Cleaner (Watch out for a reaction! It will bubble a lot.)

– 3 Tablespoons vinegar
– 1/2 Teaspoon washing soda
– 1/2 Teaspoon castile soap
– 2 Cups hot water

I think you can see how little of each ingredient is used for a batch.

mixed up

All mixed up.

The next formula is the one we use on the stove or any place that accumulates a lot of oil or grease.

Grease Cutter (Note that if you have a good eye, I messed up the label on this one for my bottles.)

- 2 Cups water
– 1/4 Cup castile soap
– 10 drops lavender oil

And finally the strongest of the solutions that we made which is for really scrubbing hard to clean areas like bathroom sinks and mildewed tubs.

Bath, Sink, Tile Cleaner (Again, watch out for some bubbling.)
NOTE: Ideally, mix this one in a SQUIRT bottle, not a SPRAY bottle. It’s pretty thick and almost a paste.

– 2/3 Cup baking soda
– 1/2 Cup castile soap
– 2 Tablespoons vinegar
– 1/2 Cup water
– A few drops of Tea Tree oil

cleaners again

Labels definitely help.

Like I said, we’ve been testing these out for the last few weeks now and I really love all of them. My favorite is the all-purpose cleaner and the antibacterial spray which just leaves everything really clean and smells fantastic without being overpowering.

If you’re looking to cut out some chemicals from your cleaning products and save some money (in the long term), you should try these out!

Anybody make their own cleaning supplies? If you have a good tip or recipe, leave a comment!

  1. Thank you for all this info! just ordered everything i need to make all of these plus to make a hardwood floor cleaner! so excited!

    1. what is your recipe for a hardwood floor cleaner? I always look online and find such contradictory information on what/what not to use. And with four small kids, I really need something to get it clean!!

      1. Hello, Leanne,

        What we use to really clean our laminate hard wood floor is a steam mop. It only uses water, but it’s heated to the point of evaporation which also sanitizes anything that the mop sets on for at least 8 seconds.

        We have four small children (5 and under) so I totally understand the need for clean floors! We have a Eureka steam mop (got it on amazon as a gold box special) and not only does it clean well, it’s super quiet so I can mop during nap time and not disturb anybody. It leaves our floors looking gorgeous, too!

  2. I have a question about your essential oils. Where did u buy yours? I have some that look exactly like the ones in your pic but went back to the store “I thought” I got mine from
    And they don’t carry that brand-I really like that brand myself. Do u know if drug stores carry them? Maybe I’m mistaken and I got mine at a drug store? I can’t remember?

    1. We buy ours at a place called vitamin cottage here in Colorado. I’m not sure if normal drug stores will carry them but most health food stores will.

      Good luck!

    2. I bought my tea tree oil from a place called Vitamin World, and the lavender (Vitamin World didn’t carry lavender) I got from GNC (which is a big enough chain that it should be in most towns!). GNC also carried tea tree oil, but I’d already purchased it from the first store I went to and didn’t want to fuss with returning it.

  3. I made these over the weekend and LOVE them!!!! I seriously love them. They are FAR superior to any store-bought cleaning product out there, and they’re all natural ingredients. I’m big into not using chemicals in my home and have just been using straight vinegar on most things for a while now, but it doesn’t quite do the job sometimes. These cleaners are perfect! I ended up having to spend about $45 to start because I needed the spray bottles, but like you said the cost will be reduced to pennies per bottle whenever you finally run out of the ingredients! A note about the spray bottles: the cheapy Walmart ones are CRAP, trust me. Invest in some heavy duty ones from Target. Yes, at $5 a piece they are a bit pricey, but they are MUCH better quality.

    1. Possibly you could find heavy-duty bottles at Home Depot or similar hardware stores. I’ve had trouble with cheap bottles too. Nothing worse than having it break after three squirts!

  4. Hi!
    I have 2 questions – do you need to rinse after using these cleaners? Do the solutions ever go bad after a period of time? Thanks.

  5. I’ve been making laundry detergent for a couple years now, to reduce the strain on the household budget. A bar of Fels Naptha, grated, dissolved in about 6 cups of water on the stovetop; while that’s heating, fill a large lidded bucket (we use a recycled cat-litter bucket) with 3 gallons of hot water, and dissolve into it a cup of borax, 2 cups washing soda, and a cup of baking soda. When the soap mixture is dissolved, pour it into the bucket and mix it. Let it sit for 24 hours. It turns into a gel, which you really want to stir well to break up. While I’m thrilled with this homemade solvent, there are a few things that I’ve learned along the way which are helpful to remember: It doesn’t create suds, so don’t be distressed when you aren’t seeing them (this makes it really good for HE and front-loaders, by the way); you really need to break the gel up because it doesn’t dissolve well in cold water (though it does okay in warm water and great in hot); you can use any bar soap you have on hand (though you probably should use 1.5 or 2), and you can add essential oils to make it smell however you want.

    It isn’t homemade, but for fabric softener, I mix 2 oz. of my store brand with about 18 oz of water in a spray bottle. When I put the laundry into the dryer, I spray 10 times right onto the wet laundry. So I don’t buy dryer sheets at all, and I use just a fraction of the softener. I purchase a bottle once or twice a year, instead of once a month. (I also use a ball or two of tinfoil, wadded up, to deter static electricity in the dryer.)

    I am trying to find castile soap so I can try your solutions–I’m particularly interested in the all-purpose cleaner and the grease cutter. My husband rolled his eyes at first over the laundry detergent, but he can’t deny how much money we save doing it, and his clothes are as clean as ever, and he’s not having allergic reactions to it (which was a serious problem with several national brands). I think he’ll be pleased with another cost-saver.

    1. Target carries Castille soap. I think Walmart does too. Look around in the shower gel aisles. In Target, it’s in the aisle with the more natural products, such as Burts Bees.

  6. In the all purpose cleaner is the lanvander used just for scent or is it for the antibacterial purpose? I was just curious if you could use a citrus in place of it. :) Thank so much

    1. There are other essential oils that are antibacterials, which is especially handy if you can’t stand lavender. You can look on shopping sites like Wholesale Supplies Plus for other antibacterial EOs (they have great, helpful descriptions of them, to help people that don’t have other resources for knowing what to get).

  7. Quick question, you have washing soda pictured, but say baking soda in the recipes. I was wondering which is correct….thanks!!

      1. The Grease Cutter says washing soda on the label, but you did not include it in the recipe.
        So does it contain washing soda, and if yes, then how much?

  8. I made the tile and bathroom cleaner and it turned rock hard. Do you make it and use it right away or do you make a big batch. I made a big batch and went to clean my bathroom in the morning and it was hard. I broke it up with mor water but it was really hard to rinse the shower with big clumps.

    1. Hmmm… I can’t say that has ever happened to us. Ours keeps for at least a month at a time… I guess add in a bit more water though to try and avoid that!

  9. Can’t wait to try these. My son is very sensitive to chemicals. The only problem is (and I know I am in a minority) I absolutely hate the smell of lavender due to a traumatic experience. Is there another essential oil with similar properties that could be substituted?

    1. Dee-
      Try grapefruit seed oil. It also has antibacterial properties to it :)
      You can also soak a few citrus rinds (orange/lemon) in vinegar for a couple of weeks, and it will then smell like the citrus, not the vinegar, but keeps the antibacterial properties of the vinegar. Discard the rinds and put vinegar in spray bottle. Can use on most surfaces except natural stone (like marble or granite).

  10. I love this idea. I’m going to try it with peppermint or spearmint oil added, which supposedly repel ants. Cleaner and ant repellent in one (hopefully!).

  11. Thanks for these! Will the cleaners work as well without the lavender oil? I think the scent might bother my asthma.

    Also, what is your opinion of peroxide? I use it in my laundry to freshen.

  12. I’m so with you with all of this. In fact, I gave up commercial cleaners a while ago now and liked the effects so much I moved on to making my own soap.

    Thanks for spreading the word :)

  13. I know it states that I would not have to use lavender castile soap, but has anyone tried a different fragrance (I really like the smell of eucalyptus). I didn’t know how this would smell mixed with the lavender oil.

  14. I make my window/glass cleaner using : 1/4 cup vinegar, 1 teaspoon dishsoap, and 2 cups water. It really cleans the windows and is streak free!!!!!

  15. I was under the impression that after bubbling that baking soda and vinegar cancel each other out. Meaning that they are useless in the recipe together. I was wondering if this is so. I learned this when researching recipes for laundry detergent. A couple of chemist had chimed in with that notation.

  16. Can sweet orange oil be substituted for the lavender oil? Does it have antibacterial properties?

    1. Not sure on that Sue. I’ve never tried it with sweet orange oil. I’m sure it would smell great but i’m not sure about antibacterial properties…

  17. I’ve been wanting to cross over to homemade cleaners and was so thrilled when I came across your site on Pinterest! I made my first batch today and can’t wait to try them out this weekend. Slowly doing away with chemicals in my household! There were comments on where to find the essential oils – I know that MarketofChoice carries them especially the Aura Cacia brand. Thanks for sharing :)

  18. hey there! I am just trying to find a solution to get rust off of the inside of a bathroom sink? Any thoughts? I have tried the solutions that you listed above but nothing is working. I really want to avoid chemicals. Thanks!

  19. I love this! Quick question, I noticed a lot of your recipes combine vinegar (acid) and the Castile soap (base). Won’t these cancel each other out?

    1. Heya Jessica. Yea… I get that and a lot of people have commented on it. I just used the recipes from the book and they worked for me so I shared them.

    1. Hey Kari, yea… a lot of people have mentioned that. I just shared the recipes out of a popular cleaning book because they worked for me.

  20. Love these! Thank you for sharing them. Just a quick question…the ones with vinegar, would they have a strong vinegar smell?

  21. Can I substitute Tea Tree Oil for the Lavender and use the citrus Castile soap? Or maybe the orange and vinegar solution? I don’t like the scent of Lavender and it’s a hormone disrupter for boys so I try to avoid it because of my 5 year old son…. Any suggestions?

    1. the articles I read about lavender and boys also mentions the same about tea tree oil. FYI. What I read said that the effects are when you apply the oils to the skin for long periods of time. However, if you want to be cautious, then tea tree oil is in the same category as lavender. Eucalyptus, Lemon & Peppermint also have antibacterial properties and may be a better substitute.

  22. Great recipe’s … where did you get your nice bottles? I cannot find any that are decent quality. Thanks.

    1. THey are just from Target Jodi. I’m not sure if they sell them anymore though… i haven’t seen them in a few months.

  23. I used the All Purpose Cleaner the other day on my truck. It cleaned the nastiness (oil/grease/tar/dirt) off of my wheels! It also got the gunk out of the cup holders. I had a glaze that was dried on to the top of my stove that scraping wouldn’t even get. I sparyed the cleaner on it, and it wiped right off! Great stuff!

  24. I’ve been using homemade cleaners and laundry soap for about a yr. mine are made with viniger. love these ideas.

  25. I noticed that the all purpose cleaner doesn’t have any essential oils in it. I’m wondering if you could add tea tree oil or something similar to give it scent?

  26. Awesome! I think I’ll mix the bubbling ones in large mixing bowls and then pour into the bottles so as not to have to worry about them bubbling over! Thanks for these recipes! I use a lot of vinegar in my household cleaning but to be honest I’m very NOT fond of the smell!

  27. I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this, but in the basic cleaner you mix castille soap and vinegar together. Since one is a base and the other is an acid, they shouldn’t be mixed, they cancel each other out.

        1. YES! I recently discovered this myself when my soap curdled and started to smell awful. Dr. Bronner has a blog post on their website about this (http://lisa.drbronner.com/?p=292). There are a lot of internet recipes that call for mixing vinegar and castile soap, and it really isn’t a good idea.

          1. If you want to use vinegar in the mixture, you could use Sal’s Suds instead of the castille soap. (I like Sal’s Suds a lot – I mostly use it in laundry.)

          2. yes! this happened to mine as well today, had used the all purpose for cleaning my vinyl table cloth. I began to notice cheesy chunks of soap in my bottle and it wasn’t working as well. So now i will just ex the vinegar and keep the other ingredients, should work just fine! thanks.

    1. Maybe they cancel each other out by pH, but even that isn’t likely. It is not true that they shouldn’t mix. He evens warns that it bubbles.

  28. Oh I love this! And I love that these are natural cleaners with essential oils! Since becoming a mom, I’ve revamped our entire world to be chemical free except for anti-bacterial… I wouldn’t have known to use lavender oil! Thanks!

  29. very nice tips;I am going to do all the four items.Thank you very much for the nice
    useful,money-saving tips.GOD bless you.Kindly tell me what isCastile Soap?

    1. I’m far from an expert but I’ve heard that a paste of vinegar and baking soda does the trick on hard water stains. Rub it on and let it sit for 10 minutes. THen wash it off. Good luck!

  30. I have been using these cleaners for the past month and I am impressed! My favorites are the all-purpose and grease cutter. The grease cutter easily wipes off baked on messes and the all-purpose cleaner leaves not sticky residues. The bath cleaner did ok for me, leaving behind some ring around the tub, but I’m gonna give it a few more weeks before I make up my mind. So glad you shared these!

  31. I have been making the lavender antibacterial spray and the tub, sink, and tile cleaner for about a year now, and I LOVE both! I am actually making a batch of the cleaner right now. Thank you for this post :)

  32. The best homemade tub and sink cleaner I’ve found is by far baking soda and peroxide. It works wonders in the tub. I use about a half cup of baking soda and mix enough peroxide to make a runny paste. You can keep it in a Tupperware container if you don’t use all of it. Works better than store bought scouring powders. Also worked my glass stove top, shines like new!!

  33. I make and sell my own essential oils-based cleaning products. I love this post! As an aromatherapist, I would suggest adding between 10-15 drops of essential oil per ounce of liquid. So, if you had 8 oz of water, add 80-120 drops of essential oil for cleaning purposes. The best way to clean! Enjoy!

  34. I really want to make these but HATE the smell of vinegar. Would adding essential oils to the all purpose cleaner help with the odor or just make it worse? Do all of these cleansers that have vinegar reek? If I take out the vinegar and just use the castile soap will they still be good cleansers?

    1. Try throwing some orange peel in with your mix – it helps the cleaning process, and it smells like citrus. :)

  35. I use a mix of half vinegar, half water on EVERYTHING. It cleans my windows, everything in my kitchen, my entire bathroom, all my Ikea furniture, and everything smells clean. Vinegar is a naturaly disinfects, and it’s really cheap, too. So far, it’s worked on everything, although sometimes it needs to sit for a minute on grease.

  36. Hey you should totally look up all the uses for coconut oil it is an awesome thing for cleaning and consuming!! It’s anti bacterial if you consume it it’s even so awesome it’s supposed to kill hep c, hiv, herpes etc! Wards of cancer etc. Should definitely check out!!!

  37. For the lady that wanted to removed hard water spots, I use a lemon. Just cut my lemon in half and rub until I use the whole lemon up and then wipe off. They will not come off immediately because they have been there a long time. But be persistent, and rub the spots when you have the time or just on your regular cleaning day. They will eventually be gone. Hope this helps.

  38. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you’re utilizing?
    I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest site and I’d like to find something more secure.
    Do you have any suggestions?

  39. I’m allergic to lavender (I know, super sad. Found out after I planted an entire bed of lavender under my bedroom window.) Any suggestions on other natural anti-bacterial essential oils I could use for these recipes?

  40. I don’t believe the lavender spray would work, essential oil loses it’s potency over time when it’s exposed to light. You’re wasting your money unless you put it into a dark container that allows no light in it. It’s much like the reason hydrogen peroxide is always in a black container. Once again another DIY fail.

      1. Yes, the cabinet should block a good bit of light out, we store ours there as well. When you take it out to use and/or it getting left out you’ll have a problem with it losing potency. People who aren’t used to working with oils may not know this. My mother makes fabric and room sprays, and she was always every adamant about us putting anything with essential oils into the dark amber bottles she kept. It’s really just a good measure to take to make sure your mixture will not “spoil”. Though for this mixture of lavender essential oil you do not need to worry about it “eating” the plastic (lavender is one of the very few that is safe undiluted) , I do want to inform anyone who may attempt to use a different oil it can very well break down your plastic container. Though easily attainable, essential oils can be dangerous chemicals too.

  41. MY FAVORITE homemade cleaner for the tub is 1/2 original blue Dawn & 1/2 vinegar, spray, let it sit for a bit, come back & its a miracle LoL

    1. I put my Dawn/vinegar mixture in a dishwashing scrubber that has a scratch resistant sponge on it. I got it at Target. Just fill it up and keep it in the shower area, scrub the glass and rinse. This works better than anything I have ever used on shower glass doors. It works to remove soap scum on the tile in my shower stall, too.

  42. My only problem,I love all of these cleaning products. And have bought all of these ingredients. To use, but found out that vi gear should not be used on granite. I have granite in all my bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room. Did find on Pinterest, people have said rubbing alcohol 1/3 cup, war we 1/3 cup. And a few drops of any essential oil,. Would work. I have used this on my Brazilian Cherry hardwoods. My floors are looking fine, If anyone knows different on this. Please let me know., as I am new to this. I would love to use all the cleaners on this site, but until. I find out different. Font want to ruin my Granite counters .

  43. We have made the laundry soap and it is awesome . My husband is a Diesel Mechanic and get very dirty & greasy . I do his cloths by themselves because of the grease but they came cleaner than when they had a service do them . My White clothes are also whitier , we will not go back to regular Washer soaps . we paid about 12.00 for the ingrediants and it makes about 5 gallons . 3/4 cups 20 mule team Borax , 3/4 c Washing Soda , 1/2 c. dish soap 0r save your bars of soap and shave them . If you us bar soap you will boil that till soap is melted down . Put in a 5 Gal bucket Stir well and add 4 gal water put into containers a your ready to wash . With just the 2 of us most the time it last about 5 months .

  44. I just started making my own cleaners too! I’ll have to try out your recipes. I have also tried a baking soda and apple cider vinegar rinse on my hair, and I likey. There is no end to what you can make with vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, castile soap, etc. Plus it’s mad cheap. You go gurl (and Nick).

    XO,

    Mel

  45. My favorite money saving homemade soap is dish washing detergent. I mix a 1:1ratio of Borax and washing soda. Use 2 tablespoons per load.

  46. Thanks for this. Just wondering how long the cleaners will last before they expire? Or do they not, due to the essential oil content? THANKS!

    1. I would say you probably want to remake them every few months… just a guess based on how often my wife remakes them. ;)

  47. I’ve been wanting to try the all purpose cleaner but I wonder about having to use hot water. Is that just to get the soaps to combine or do I have to make a “fresh” batch every time I want to clean?

    1. Hey Laura, we use the same batch for a few months and then remix them. I think my wife Betsy just uses room temperature water when she mixes them up. Good luck!

  48. I just wanted to say that I made the grease cutter and it never really came together and has separated badly over time. I hardly use it at all now. I guess it was a waste.

    1. Heya! Yea… that one does separate a bit and isn’t my favorite either after a few months of use. YOu have to really shake it before each use. I’m not sure that my wife still uses that one…

      1. It’s the vinegar, which is an acid, reacting with the castile soap, which is a base and curdling (like mixing milk and orange juice). Use basic soaps to clean and vinegar to rinse: a great one-two punch; just don’t mix them together. Check out this blog post from Lisa Bronner (of Dr. Bronner’s) to explain the science behind it a little better: http://lisa.drbronner.com/?p=292

  49. Have you tried making your own laundry detergent? DIY laundry detergent is one of my family’s favorite home cleaning products. The recipe we use is listed below if you are interested.

    Ingredients
    1 Cup of Washing Soda
    1 Cup of Borax
    1 Bar of Castile Soap, grated

    Instructions
    Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container (non-metal)
    Use approximately 1 tablespoon per load of laundry.
    Tips:
    Instead of grating the castile soap by hand, cut it into chunks and put it in a microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for 30 second increments, watching closely. When it starts to “swell” and all the corners are rounded and melty looking, remove from microwave and let cool to room temperature. The texture changes and you can now just crumble it up. OR, throw it in your food processor!

  50. This tips are really great, Thank you for posting it.
    I have been making my own foot spray with tea tree oil and mint, witch hazel, purified water and alcohol, and face moisturizer with almond, Vitamin E and tea tree oils for clear skin. I also mix a few drops of tea tree oil with my shampoo and body wash to make them antibacterial too, because I’m a clean freak!! O_o
    One question, do you have to shake the antibacterial spray (lavender + water) every time you used it? I have to shake the foot spray every time I use it, since the ingredients seem to separate. Thank you!

  51. I believe that cleaning house with green cleaners it is better, but not talking about floor cleaning, just because it requires close monitoring. For example you can use ecological cleaners like I do- grindu valymo priemones urmu , because it helps not only to clean, but also to protect your floor. It is the problem that home made cleaners will not clean so good as bought ones. Try :)

  52. I tend not to create a comment, however I read a lot of comments on this page Four Homemade Cleaners.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks come across like
    they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new
    you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your public sites like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    1. Hi Shonda, all of the links to my social media profile pages are at the top of the website on the right of the page. :) Thanks!

  53. I thing there is a lot of value in the ingredients being used in theses recipes. However, I do a lot of cleaning and there is one thing I noticed not used. That is isopropyl alcohol. I use of mixture of Isopropyl and water to wash windows among other things. It has great cleaning ability as well as it disinfects while it cleans. Is the reason it is not used because it is flamable? Just curios.

  54. Hi, my name is Dana and I was wondering about the free labels mentioned in the add. I am excited to use just about every one of the projects. I love natural products. Thing is I have six kids and the offer of having labeling on my bottles was amazing. I even have a good friend that is going to be going this with me. What a wonderful thing we can do for our precious families! And I must admit, cleaning seems so much more exciting and want to do it ^o^ thanks so much and please let me know about the labels. Dana Rouse (xxx)xxx-xxxx just incase it’s easier to call ;-)

    1. Hi Dana, I’m not sure what ad you are talking about. The ads load differently for each visitor… That said, I deleted your phone number from your comment because you probably don’t want it in the public view. Cheers!

  55. I’m in the UK. is your baking soda the same as our Bicarbonate of Soda? have bought my vinegar and essential oils today, and was about to convert to Bronnere for family use too, so this is great. Still be confused on everyone’s differing views on Castille soap with vinegar!
