Make It Monday: All Purpose Cleaner

Depending on where you live Spring is either here or still working on it.  Still working on it by us, but it is coming slowly.  And that means it's time for Spring Cleaning!  Is there any better time of year to consider changing to green cleaning products?  I've had a lot of friends ask for this "recipe" lately so I thought I would share it here.

All Purpose Cleaner

1/2 cup liquid castile soap
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp borax
16 ounces hot water
10-15 drops essential oil
Spray Bottle

This is a pretty easy one.  Just mix everything together in your spray bottle.  I use unscented castile soap and 8 drops tea tree oil/7 drops of lavendar oil.  I chose those two essential oils because I like how they smell together and they have some anti-bacterial properties.  If I were using this more in a kitchen setting, I would choose a citrus essential oil for their ability to help cut grease.

Make sure to shake the bottle a bit before spraying because the contents will settle.  This is a great smelling, simple all purpose cleaner you can make at home.  I have the recipe written right on my bottle.  That way I never have to look it up.

Are you going to go green this spring when it comes to cleaning?  If so, what are your favorite cleaning recipes?  I'll share a few more of mine as we progress through the spring.  Happy cleaning!
