Day 8 was Get Ready to Clean Day
Now I make a few homemade cleaners
Furniture Polish3/4 cup olive oil juice from 1/4 lemon 1 tablespoon vinegar 3-4 drops lemon essential oil (optional)
Dampen rag & squeeze out excess water. Dip damp rag into furniture polish, the wipe on surface of furniture. Buff off with an old dry towel. Can also be used to polish stainless steel.
Floor Cleaner1 cup vinegar 1/2 cup baking soda 8-10 cups hot water 1 tablespoon borax 1 tablespoon washing soda 30 drops essential oil (optional)
Mix vinegar & baking soda together in bucket; add hot water, Borax, washing soda, & essential oil and mix until all powder is dissolved. Use mop or sponge to wipe down floor; wipe dry with clean dry towel.
Homemade Laundry Detergent1 bar Ivory soap 1 cup borax 1 cup washing powder
This homemade laundry detergent is so cheap and easy to make that you will kick yourself for not trying it until now. Place Ivory soap in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, until soap turns to foam. Quickly stir foam until it becomes small soap chips, then mix well with borax and washing powder. Allow to cool completely, then store in airtight container. Use 1-2 tablespoons per load. (Tip: This detergent works best in warm or hot water; for cold water washing you may want to first dissolve in 1/4 c. of hot water.)
