The day we tossed out all the chemical-laden cleaning products, we have never looked back. We can now eat from the bench without worrying about eating spray and wipe, let me show you how to clean without a toxic overload.
Using natural cleaning products instead of commercial ones will make cleaning easier on the hands, nose and on the body. No more sore hands, no more toxic smells, no more worry. Adding essential oils to water, baking soda or vinegar will have your house smelling amazing and fresh. These essential oils are natural degreasers and have antimicrobial properties. Yes! They really do work.
Here are some examples of what we use.
