Hope you had a good week. I did. My farmers markets are going well.
Last post I told you I was going to share with you my recipe for all-purpose cleaner that I use. It works great and I don’t have to worry about the chemicals so its safe for my family including my dogs and cats. I got this recipe out of an old book I checked out of the library. I am going to post a warning right here before I start :WARNING- DO NOT USE on granite or marble. Now that’s out of the way on to the recipe. I use a regular spray bottle you get from the dollar store or Walmart.
1 teaspoon Borax
1 Tablespoon Castile Soap
1/8 cup White Vinegar
2 cups Hot Water
5 to 10 drops Essential Oils ( I use Sweet Orange)
Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle. Spitz as needed and wipe away.
I find it leaves no residual. The Sweet Orange gives it a citrus smell to it. I am getting ready to try another recipe so I will give it to you and tell you later how it works. I found this recipe on pinterest by The Yummy Life. I have also seen it other places. Again WARNING: DO NOT USE ON GRANITE AND MARBLE.
Enough Orange peels to fill 1/2 Gallon Mason Jar
Distilled White Vinegar
!/2 Gallon Mason Jar
Something to Label it with
Fill mason jar with orange peels. Fill jar with enough vinegar to cover peels. Put lid on and label. Let sit for 2 weeks to a month. The longer you let it sit the better. After it sits. Fill spray bottle and use like any other all- purpose cleaner.
Well until next time.
Have a great week.
