If you are ANYTHING like me, you are asking this question:
“Do these homemade ‘cleaners’ actually CLEAN???… because that’s kind of the point. I want all germs, viruses, bacteria and all other nastiness that have made their way into my house killed!”
So this blog post is dedicated to ME. After reading this post I can be assured that my new cleaners are kicking germ butt and leaving my house clean!!!
Oh, and I hope it helps you too! 🙂
THE PRODUCTS I WILL USE THE MOST:
natural deodorizer and stain remove and rinses easily.
BONUS: completely non-toxic (safe for pets – or kids – who might be tempted to lick it) and cheap!
disinfectant, can remove stains, and is a sanitize
BONUS: completely non-toxic and cheap!
LIQUID CASTILE SOAP
(like Dr. Bronner’s)
vegetable based soap (others are petroleum based), non-toxic and gentle enough to use on face or on pets.
3% FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
a natural bleaching agent, disinfectant, and has stain removing properties. Does not have heavy metals (like the non-food grade kind) and can be used for first-aid, body and oral care, produce, household surfaces, dishwasher, laundry & stains, plants & gardens, and plants.
Do not take by mouth.
Do not use Lemongrass undiluted on your skin.
Lavender is not recommended for children to use orally and consult your doctor before using it topically. Read THIS about using lavender oil
If you are pregnant, do not consume Juniper Berry. Also, some medications can can interact with this. For more info on using Juniper Berry, read THIS.
Speak to your health care provider before using Clary Sage during pregnancy and childbirth.
Also, it should be avoided internally. Read more about different types of Sage oil HERE
Eucalyptus should never be applied to the skin undiluted. Avoid use of an infant or young child. It should never be taken orally, unless under the guidance of a qualified physician.
Citrus oils bother some people, or even may be allergic to them, so choose one cleaner to use it in, only use a few drops of it at first, and then observe everyone in the house for a few days after being exposed to it.
