Switching to natural cleaners

July 16, 2019

After all the wonderful advice on here recently about natural home-made cleaning products (reasons why I love Instagram #435) I started doing a bit of research and have discovered a home-made fabric/air freshener. Ah! This is a gamechanger if you have damp hounds in confined spaces. I’m still experimenting at the moment but this bottle hold 500ml water. To that I added 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda in which I’d mashed 20drops of grapefruit & 20 drops of lemon essence. The van smells divine! I’ve also made one I love with peppermint & lemon essence + fresh lemon & rosemary in the bottle but I gave that to a friend. This is utterly wonderful. Yesterday I gave the new cleaner a go: 1ltr bottle with 1/3 white vinegar & 2/3 water, 10 drops each peppermint & lemon essential oils, plus fresh lemon & garden rosemary. Also a revelation. Wishing I’d tried this years ago.
