  • Bleach and so many cleaning products bought at the grocery store has toxic chemicals. So please be extra careful not to combine any cleansers together and make sure you have an open window or something to breath in fresh air. I found an amazing store that has nothing but natural ingredients to clean our home and our bodies. My 2 year old helps me clean! I don't get headaches, my face doesn't break out and i don't have to worry about endangering me and my family! Let me know if you want more information on this store! My email is

  • This Is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non-toxic.
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    3/4 cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender essential oil (optional) (antiseptic and smells nice) For extra scrubbing, I make a paste with salt, baking soda and vinegar

    This is a great resource:

  • i just use vinegar water for the bathroom, if i need a scrubbing cleanser for the tub then i use a baking soda paste.
