How to Make 100% Natural Household Cleaning Products
In an effort to reduce my household waste, I have started making my own cleaning products. I love knowing that I am reducing plastic container waste from the landfill and making a better choice for Mother Earth. Also, in a world full of toxins that have an effect on our health, it gives me a sense of peace to know exactly what is in the products that I am using and that they are 100% natural. Bonus: you will save $$$$ by making your own household cleaners as well.
If you are worried that essential oils are not powerful enough to kill household germs, I encourage you to check out some of the scientific research HERE. You can rest assured that you are disinfecting and cleaning... naturally! Plants are powerful allies in many ways.

Add ingredients above to glass spray bottle and shake gently before each use, spray surfaces and wipe clean.
