Natural Cleaning Hack

After a trip to the store, I found out that if you want a chemical-free cleaner, then you have to open your wallet.

It's insane how expensive it is to be both environmentally friendly and take care of your health. We needed to figure out a way to make it cheaper.

So after a bit of searching and asking we found some cleaning hacks. After a few rounds at the shops, we had what we needed. It was time to test.

The purchase list can be found further down in the article.

General cleaning solution

NOTE: do not use cleaning agents with vinegar on granite, marble, or natural stone

You need: 1 empty spray bottle (we bought glass bottles from sisters Grene and Granit), but use what you have, just wash and rinse them well. 1 part water 1 part vinegar (usually 7% works great) 10 - 30 essential oils (can be skipped) Mix water and vinegar in the bottle, then add the number of drops of essential oils, here it is your preferences that determine how strong the smell you want. Shake well, spray, and wipe with a well-knitted washcloth. If you want to knit your clothes, you will find a simple knitting pattern on our blog.

1 tablespoon Castille soap (you can get it at most health food stores)

You need:

2dl water

2 tablespoons vodka (cheap is best here)

Vodka can not be skipped as the oil must dissolve in water.
