Afternoon eKa CIRCLE
Are you attempting to transition to natural cleaning products? What have you found successful so far?
This morning I made up a little potion of bicarbonate soda with vinegar, this time with lemon essential oil added as many people don’t seem to like the vinegar smell (which dissipates quite quickly btw.) The addition of the zesty lemon smell really helps and it also assists to cut back on grease buildups. The bicarb is slightly abrasive which helps to remove stubborn stains. Don’t rub too hard on surface areas that might scratch and as with all cleaning materials a spot test is always advised.You can make the paste as thick or as thin as you like and any leftovers will keep in a screw top jar in your cleaning cupboard.
Use this cream cleanser on hard surfaces in kitchens and bathrooms. Simply wipe on or use a natural bristle brush depending on the surface you are cleaning. Use a damp cloth to wipe clean and finish with a dry cloth.
Some ideas for cleaning using this simple solution are:
- stained tea cups
- kitchen benches
- the inside of the fridge
- bathtubs, sinks & toilet
- stained caesarstone- smear a little on the stain leave for an hour or two and then wipe clean
- stainless steel taps
- oven door
- saucepans and frying pans
- wooden chopping boards
- tiles and grout
1/2 cup bicarbonate of soda
1/3 cup white vinegar
12 drops lemon essential oil
Mix the ingredients together to form a paste and store in a screw top jar.
This cleanser will also assist in flushing your drain naturally of any grease deposits. Economical, eco friendly and chemical free- how good is that!
It is the small changes that we can each make towards real health and wellbeing for ourselves, our families and the our environment that matter. Let’s learn from each other.
