all-purpose cleaner recipe
...It's a dreamy kind of morning
The day started with rain
and the rain continues
Moonpie is on the couch reading
Buddy is in his room quietly playing
and I'm dreaming of a spring garden...
in the meantime, I have a new cleaning recipe to share with you. I usually am a vinegar and water kind of gal, but I threw caution to the wind this week and came up with something I rather like. I hope you do too!
Herban Homestead All-purpose cleaner
(based on a recipe found in Green Clean by Hunter and Halpin)
2 C hot water
1 tsp borax
1 tbsp Dr. Bronner's castile soap
1/8 C white vinegar
5 drops rosemary essential oil (EO)
10 drops lemon EO
2 drops tea tree EO
using a funnel, pour into spray bottle
This cleaner has better surfactants than my typical vinegar and water. And it smells great!
