Green Cleaners

Cutting down on harsh store-bought products is beneficial to your family’s health. Here’s one recipe for an all-purpose cleaner scrub: – 2 cups hot water – 2 tsp borax (a natural mineral) –– 2 tsp white vinegar – 5-6 drops essential oil. Mix together in a spray bottle and use for most household jobs. For a natural air freshener, fill a spray bottle full of water, with 6-7 drops of essential oil. For a vegetable wash use 50:50 mix of vinegar and water to soak berries and other produce that cannot be scrubbed. It also doubles as an inexpensive glass cleaner.
