Winter's out. Spring is in. Bring it on!
Just in case spring cleaning is on your list of things to do, here is a link to our favorite site with homemade recipes for natural cleaning supplies. Not only does this help eliminate the use of toxic chemicals in our home, but buying a few spray bottles and common cleaning items is much more economical.
The recipes here will help deal with toilets, floors, oven, mirrors, and appliances, and will replace your chemical-drenched laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, liquid dish soap, fabric softeners and disinfectant sprays. http://www.natural-healthy-home-cleaning-tips.com/natural_home_cleaning_recipes.htm
A comparison of commercial cleaning ingredients and those used in our DIY spring cleaning concoctions should make the decision to go green with cleaning supplies a no-brainer.
