It's about time for spring cleaning! The end of the school year means that I am now able to focus on a few things that I might have let slip... just a little. It's time to restock all of my favorite natural cleaners and the best part.. it's easy and cheap. I make them myself in less than fifteen minutes for all of them.
Today, I want to share with you a few natural counter spray recipes that rock. You can combine different scents of oils for different effects aromatically. Using a disinfectant oil with a deodorizing oil, you can cut the grease, clean the glass and polish the wood. I'm even making my own toilet spray to hide the, well, poopy smell.
What? Of course not! That spray is not for me! Ladies simply don't poop. It's for my boys and my guests... yeah... that's it.
Time to reduce the dust, grime and toxins in my house! Reducing toxins helps keep the air clear of respiratory irritants that can cause us to get sick, disrupt our hormones, cause headaches and increase rashes and other inflammatory responses.
