I hope you like this natural homemade all purpose cleaner recipe. I have been very concerned with becoming aware of the toxins around my home for a long time. Then I have been making my own cleaners out of simple ingredients such as lemon juice, vinegar, baking soda and castile soap. I recently started adding essential oils to the mix when I learned how powerful they are against household grease and grime.
They cut through dirt with their own powerful yet naturally concentrated properties. I was really impressed when I added them to my home cleaning routine. I love the smell too, it’s actually clean not just a mask of toxic perfumes and dangerous chemicals like common cleaners from the store.
I hope you love this recipe, it has helped me in my home.
