Citrus Vinegar All-Purpose Cleaner

Today’s modern home is loaded with toxic and polluting substances designed to make domestic life easier. In the US, 1 in 3 people suffer from allergies, asthma, sinusitis or bronchitis (US National Center for Health Statistics). Treatment for these conditions should include reducing synthetic chemicals in the home environment. 
This cleaner is ridiculously easy to make, and works gently and effectively in every way you'd need it too, except maybe windows. It'll clean them, but the citrus oil will leave streaks.
I know this recipe isn't a new one, but in my opinion, if your only going to make one cleaner from scratch to replace something store bought and full of chemicals, this one should be it. 





Happy Scrubbing!

  9. LOVE this! I am definitely going to try it out. I used to just use vinegar to clean with, but, when I met my husband. he didn't like the smell. Hopefully, adding the citrus will help. Thanks so much! Great post! I'm going to put this on my pinterest page. Following back.
