SHOPPING LIST FOR RECIPES:

To make the cleaners below, you’ll need the following:

• Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), a sodium salt
• Washing Soda (Sodium Carbonate), related to baking soda
• White Distilled Vinegar, an acid
• Liquid Castille Soap, (Olive, Coconut, and other vegetable oils)
• Organic Soap Flakes (Organic Coconut and Soy or Palm)
• Organic Food Grade Vegetable Gylcerin, natural component of fats and oils.
• Borax (Sodium Borate Decahydrate), sodium and boron- a natural mineral
• Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), naturally occuring water like liquid
• Vodka
• Citric Acid, bitter acid found in fruits
• Essential Oils (yeah, doTERRA!)
• Kosher Salt
• Glass Spray Bottles, Containers, Mixing Bowls

 Start up cost to get these ingredients might seem overwhelming. But, the cost per use remains significantly less than retail cleaners. They last a LONG time and you can use them in many ways around your home.

Also, it’s a good idea to ditch the paper towel use as much as possible. Try microfiber clothes for cleaning. They are great!

 

Clothes Washing Powder (for Machines including HE):

16 cups Baking Soda
12 cups Borax
8 cups Soap Flakes
3 tblsp Essential Oil of choice, i.e. Lavender, Lemon, Grapefruit, etc.

Combine ingredients, mix with a wire wisk. Use 1/8 cup per load.
Makes enough to last a family of 4 one year.  Can reduce the recipe by 1/4 for a smaller batch.
