Simple, Natural All-Purpose Cleaner

I have slowly but surely been eliminating the use of chemicals in our home. What pushed me to go for it was that, even when I tried to keep them up and away from the kids, they seemed to find a way to get them as soon as my back was turned. This homemade cleaner is easy, inexpensive, and very effective. The best part? The kids could drink it and it wouldn't hurt them at all! I use this in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as on all our floors. The ingredients make it a great germ-buster too.

All-Purpose Cleaner
1 part white vinegar
2 parts water
A few drops of essential oil such as OnGuard. Lemon and Orange oil are also great for cleaning. The amount of essential oil you use will depend on the size of your spray bottle.

Add all to spray bottle & shake to mix. The oils can separate a bit, so I try to shake or swirl it once in a while during use. Happy cleaning!

I believe organic is the best way to go. Vinegar has a lot of benefits aside from being a cooking ingredient and a good cleaning agent, it's also a good antiseptic against sore throat.
