Recipes for All-Natural Cleaners
1. All-Purpose Cleaner
This cleaner is ideal for many cleaning tasks throughout your house including those surfaces that need disinfecting such as countertops and sinks.
1 cup of distilled water
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
30 drops of lemongrass essential oil
Mix all the ingredients together into a glass bottle with a sprayer. You can buy separate sprayers so you can reuse your glass bottles. Shake to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Spray this mixture liberally on to the surfaces you need to clean and wipe dry.

2. Natural Laundry Detergent
This gentle detergent is ideal for even delicate washables.
2 cups of washing soda
2 cups of borax
5 ounces shaved Castile soap
Process these ingredients in a food processor until they make a fine powder. This will help the detergent dissolve more easily in cold or hot water. Store the mixture in an airtight container. Use a 1/4 cup for a load of clothes.

Natural Carpet Spot Cleaner
1/2 cup of fine sea salt
1/2 cup of borax
1/2 cup of non-GMO white vinegar
Mix all ingredients into a paste and apply the paste to the stains on the carpet. Work the paste deep into the fibers by gently rubbing. Leave on for about 3 hours or until the paste dries to a powder. Then just vacuum.
Another alternative to this for large areas of the carpet is to simple use 1 cup of white non-GMO vinegar in place of a carpet shampoo in the hot water you place into your carpet-cleaning machine (we recommend the iRobot Roomba 780 vacuum for carpets). Shampoo as if you were using regular carpet shampoo and let dry.
