The Environmental Protection Agency has raised the red flag with artificial fragrances in cleaning products as indoor irritants and pollutants. One fragrance can include as many as 600 petrochemicals, which is quite disturbing. It is about time we went back to the simple and natural cleaning products our grandparents taught us, like baking soda, vinegar, castile soap, etc. The good old stuff it turns out, were the better products to use in the first place.
Blending these natural cleaners with essential oils only augments their cleaning potency and also creates a pleasant scent. These easy to make kitchen wipes are the ideal example of a great all-natural alternative cleaning product since they are reusable, recycled and most important, chemical free.
First, get an old piece of clothing and cut it up into rag-size cloths. Pour 1 cup of warm water, 1/8 cup of liquid castile soap, and 5 – 10 drops of your preferred essential oil into a jar with a lid that fits snug. Peppermint essential oil is a perfect complement to many homemade cleaning products with its minty scent and strong antibacterial properties. Put the rags into the jar with the liquid. Now place the top on the jar and turn it upside down until all the rags are drenched. After using the rags, they can be washed and returned to the jar for use again. Whenever you have got a nasty spill or mess, just go to your jar and pull out a rag. Take pleasure in the fact knowing that you are saving time and precious money because you don’t need to buy an endless amount of rags in the grocery. You also just made your household a step greener.
