Easy recipes for cleaners

May 16, 2008

You can make the eco-friendly cleaners yourself – like pour, shake and stir easy!  Here are 2 recipes courtesy of care2.com.

All-purpose Household Cleaner

1/2 t. washing soda
2 t. borax (it’s a laundry detergent – found it at Fred Meyer’s)
1/2 t. liquid soap or detergent
2 c. hot water

Combine ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to blend.

Soft Scrubber

1/2 c. baking soda
liquid soap or detergent
5 drops essential oil (optional)

Slowly add liquid soap or detergent to baking soda in a bowl, stirring until consistency reaches that of frosting.  Scoop creamy mixture onto sponge (or just plunk a dollop down and scrub!).
