Greener Future Fridays: Homemade Eco-friendly Cleaner

Would you like to make your own safe, chemical and toxin free household cleaner?  It’s super easy and low cost too!  Only 3 ingredients! 


            1 part White distilled vinegar

            4 parts Water

Add a few drops (10-14) of lemongrass essential oil for its nice smell and anti-bacterial properties or try tee tree oil for disinfectant and anti-viral.  If you’re feeling creative mix them together!


Mix these into a spray bottle and that’s it!

Happy cleaning!
