This morning we started our day with a major clean out in honor of one of the Chinese New Year traditions of clearing out your stagnant space and making room for new fresh energy. If you want to jump on the bandwagon of cleaning then try a chemical free cleaner. There are no unnecessary chemicals traveling through the air into your brain that will block you from feeling your utmost best and your space will be toxin free and cleaner than ever!
Homemade cleaning products are easier to make than you would think! All you need is a base of distilled white vinegar and some orange or lemon skins. There is no need to buy expensive orange cleaners….it’s cheaper and more sustainable to learn how to make your own. Plus the feeling of accomplishment is good for your psyche! Who ever knew you were a household cleaner creator! You’re a machine! Welcome to the world of non toxic cleaning, it’s amazing.
Where do I start? Easy. You need two or three things. Take a jar (whatever size you have and fill 3/4 of it with distilled white vinegar). Juice your oranges or lemons and add the skins to the jar. Let it sit for about a week and BOOM! You have a chemical free, pungent smelling, household cleaning product. The vinegar smell is only temporary and your house will seem cleaner than it has in years.
Here is a link for some other non toxic household items you can use for cleaning! Enjoy! And Happy Chinese New Year!
Today, I ran out of baking soda so I used salt and lemon juice and scrubbed my tub this way. It worked great and my tub looks 20 years younger.
