I try to use natural cleaners to clean my house because I don’t want to expose my kids to all the chemicals in a conventional cleaner. I usually use store bought natural cleaning sprays but I also keep a bottle of half vinegar and half water under my sink to use as a cleaner. I didn’t like using the vinegar and water solution very much because I just didn’t feel like it cleaned very well. This past weekend, I made a solution of equal parts vinegar and water and added some Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds and some drops of lavender oil. I love this cleaning solution! I deep cleaned my whole kitchen (plus the floors but minus the oven) with this solution and it cut the grease and worked wonderfully. When I got to some hard to scrub spots, I added either some baking soda or used a Mr. Clean magic eraser. I really love this cleaning solution and I think adding Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds made all the difference. If you decide to make this, be sure to put enough Sal Suds in the solution so that it’ll cut the grease. I think I have finally been converted to using vinegar for general cleaning. I think this solution cleans much better than any store bought cleaner! Next time I make the solution, I will add some tea tree oil for disinfectant purposes.
