Get Your Cleaning On

 
*****I posted this during the holidays and was asked to re-post to share the earth friendly cleaning supplies recipes below. We all should be conscience of what we are doing to the earth*****
 
 
 
I really didn’t want to write this because I hate cleaning, I know it has to be done, and I do it, but I hate it.

I thought my cleaning recipes might help everyone get their house ready for their Holiday guests.

Recently I have started to use homemade products to clean. It’s much cheaper than store-bought and they do just as good of a job and sometime even a better job.

Some of these recipes may not smell nice all the time but will dissipate when they dry. I’m writing this in hopes that you all will feel better knowing you did something good for the environment.

The environment is really the reason I started making my own cleaning products. I hear all the talk on the news and talk radio about how we need to take care of our environment. All that made me think about what my niece and nephew and their kids and so on, will have to look forward to in later years. Will they be able to pack a lunch of tuna sandwich’s and grape soda, like my mom and dad did for my family and go to the lake for the day and spend quality time together? Will there be water in the lake for them to even enjoy? Will gas be $8.00 a gallon?

It all starts with us and trickles down to the generations. If our kids see us trying to be green and recycle they will too and so on.

These are my favor recipes.  I use them weekly, if not daily.

All-Purpose cleaner – dissolve ½ cup washing soda in a bucket of warm water.
USE: Kitchen/Bathroom – wash surface, then rinse. Not recommended for aluminum surfaces or no-wax floors. Cleans walls, counter tops, refrigerators, appliances, tiles, sinks, tub/shower, and toilet bowls.

Baby clothes – Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the laundry rinse cycle.
USE: Baby clothes – Helps break down uric acid and soapy residue, leaving baby clothes soft and fresh.

Bathroom mold cleaner – Mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) and 2 parts water.
USE: Spray on areas with mold; wait at least one hour before rinsing or using shower.
Warning: Be careful with hydrogen peroxide; it can take the color out of fabrics

Dishwasher Detergent – mix 1 cup baking soda with 1 cup borax (use sparingly). You can use 2 packs of sugar-free lemonade, if desired, for scent.
USE: 2 – 4 Tbsp per load, dependent on how big the load.

Floor Cleaner – Add ½ cup vinegar to ½ gallon warm water & mop. No need to rinse!
USE:To clean no-wax floors.

Multi-Purpose “Greener” Cleaner – Add the following ingredients to a 16-oz spray bottle, shake well: soap (flakes, powder, or liquid), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar, 16 ounces (2 cups) water.
USE: Multi-Purpose

**DISCLAIMER: PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP ALL CLEANERS, EVEN GREEN,  AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS**

A portion of my earnings will be donated to The American Cancer Society

 

I am re-posting this because I believe it’s important to get the word out that I will be donating 25% of my Dec.15 -Dec 31 earnings.

Please help me help the American Cancer Society.

My earnings have been sparse so please pass along the word

All help is greatly appreciated

They are there to help us and we should help them.

 
 

This holiday season I have been thinking a lot about all the friends and family I’ve lost in the last 5 years. All passed due to cancer except one.  Most recently was my boyfriends mother.

He reached out to The American Cancer Society for knowledge and guidance and they were so great to him. He appreciated it so much that he wanted to write a letter of appreciation after his mother passed.

Before he got the chance to write the letter they had called him to see if he needed any other information or help. Both he and I were impressed with their professionalism, patience and understanding.  Because of that I have decided to donate 25% of all my Dec. 15 thru Dec. 31 earnings from Amazon to The American Cancer Society

Please use my Amazon link below to make your purchases thru Dec. 31.

I will post my earnings amount and donation amount by January 31st.

Happy Holidays Everyone Be Safe!!!
