For awhile now I have been interested in more natural cleaning products. It’s the whole move towards simplicity and more natural ingredients that our family has been moving towards slowly but surely.
The week after Easter this year I finally made my own laundry soap. It was SO EASY!!! I can’t believe I waited so long to try it. Now we are at the end of May and I still have about 1/3 left. It should easily last until the end of June. So for 15 minutes of my time and about $7.50 I have had laundry soap for 3 months. I am definitely converted!
Here is the laundry soap recipe that I used. Most seem to be pretty similar so I finally just picked one and went with it.
I ran out of chemical cleaner so yesterday I picked out some all purpose cleaners to try. I really don’t like the smell of vinegar so I found this citrus cleaner to try. I used three oranges, but there is still room in the jar so four would have been perfect.
The jar looks so pretty sitting on my counter! But it takes 2-3 weeks to meld, stew, ferment? I don’t really know what it’s doing except that it will be a lovely smelling (hopefully) all purpose cleaner eventually.
That didn’t help me for today when I needed some so I tried this all purpose cleaner. You probably have everything you need on hand. It worked wonderfully on my kitchen counters and it didn’t smell very vinegary at all, yay!
There are a boatload of recipes out there, everything from glass cleaner to toilet bowl cleaner.
Any suggestions for what I should try next?
