Preparing the Home For Guests Naturally: My Collection of Homemade Cleaners
With the holidays suddenly upon us, I am scrambling to prepare my home for our out-of-town guests! Who's with me?
I've decided to gather a few of my most popular homemade cleaner recipes here in one place so as to serve as a reference for those of us in a mad rush to clean the toilets, the tub, the windows, the counters...
Also included here is a brand new recipe for a wood furniture dusting spray. You know I'm not down with paying for or using any of the commercial products out there made for dusting, so naturally I make my own.
Wood Furniture Dusting Spray
-1 cup water
-1 tsp. olive or jojoba oil
-1 tsp. liquid baby mild castile soap
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-15 drops sweet orange essential oil
Directions: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or spray bottle. Apply to lint-free cloth and dust away. Store remainder of mixture in glass jar or spray bottle. Will last indefinitely. Note: If using in a spray bottle, shake bottle often as you are spraying in order to mix the oil in with the liquid.
