So how is your cleaning going? Have you made the switch yet to more natural products? Several people have asked me, "Do these really clean?" Let's hope so, it's all I use now! ;)
Seriously, I have not seen any more dirt than normal and I love the fresh scent as opposed to the chemicals, so yes, I do believe they work. Plus, with all of the research I have been doing on essential oils, I am convinced they are a good addition to your life! (If you are interested in essential oils, let me know!)
Like I said at the first of the month, I use one general cleaner for almost everything, but there are times when you need something with a little more umph. For tile showers, sinks and tubs then I use the following mixture...
1 1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup castile soap
10 drops of tea tree or lavender essential oil
Combine all to make a paste, adding water a little at a time if you need a softer consistency. Scoop out and use on cleaning cloth to clean. If you save this from cleaning to cleaning, it will dry out. Just add a touch of water and mix!
