This should be a really short page – because I pretty much use vinegar & baking soda for everything – but no, we’ll have some other ideas to post here too. For instance, a couple of new ideas from a friend this week:
My main cleaner is Biz and Simple Green. In a Liter spritz bottle I use about a quarter cup of each, add hot water and let the Biz dissolve. It’s wonderful.
I also make something I call 20 drop spritz: 20 drops each of these essential oils lavender, oregano, thyme, rosemary, lemon, peppermint and tea tree in a liter spritz bottle. Add water (purified is best), shake before using. This oils in this are antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. It makes a great hand sanitizer or even a mouth freshener. I developed it for use in the dayspa many years ago and l’m still using it. I carry a small spritz bottle in my purse for when I have to deal with “the public”.
— I’m not familiar with Biz & Simple Green, but the spritzer sounds like a good idea…especially for those situations with other parents, etc., who insist your kids use hand sanitizer.
Note: found this info online about Biz –
