Quickest way to reduce household toxins

The quickest and most affordable way to dramatically decrease the amount of toxins in your home is to make your own cleaning products. Here are some simple recipes for making your own. Most of these require vinegar and in our family we buy vinegar in bulk at stores like Costco – extra savings and ensures that I always have my much needed vinegar on hand.

All Purpose Spray
1 part water
1 part vinegar
Drops of tea tree essential oil and/or lavender essential oil (optional)

Ditch the Fabric Softener
Use 1/2 cup vinegar in your rinse cycle to rid of static.

Toilet Cleaner
¼ cup baking soda and 1 cup vinegar, pour it into toilet and let sit for 5 min. before scrubbing with a brush.

Bathtub Cleaner
Mix lemon juice or vinegar with baking soda to make a paste to clean your bathtub with.

Floor Cleaner
1 gallon water
1 cup of vinegar
Mix to clean hardwood and vinyl flooring.

Furniture Polish
Mix 1/4 cup olive oil with 4 Tbls. white distilled vinegar and 2tsp lemon juice in a spray bottle and use for polishing your furniture. You’ll need to refrigerate it between uses, but if you use 20 drops of lemon essential oil instead of lemon juice then you don’t need to refrigerate.

Cut the Grease
Use your dishsoap and water to cut grease in the kitchen. Works like a charm!
