Today, I am going to talk about actual spring cleaning and how I do this while saving money.
Personally, we try to avoid chemicals in all aspects of our lives. A few years back I was amazed at all the products on the market and what they were made up of. Have you hear of these words?
- sodium lauryl / laureth sulfate (SLS)
- fragrances and dyes
- propylene glycol
And that is to name only a few ingredients. Can you guess what products these chemicals are in? (see the bottom).
In our household, we have eliminated much of these thanks to many other options. We use Young Living’s Essential Oils and make many of our own products and/or purchase them from Young Living. Thieves is a staple in our home – here’s a link to the product information page. We use this oil / products to clean (dish washing soap, dishwasher detergent, tooth paste, hand sanitizer, wipes and more.
We make our own cleaners – one quick and easy to do one is glass cleaner (1/4 cup white vinegar, 2 cups water with a few drops of my favorite essential oils mix together in a glass spray bottle. This works great in mirrors, windows and glass coffee table. There are many more items you can easily make at home without chemicals. One of my favorite books Essential Oils Ancient Medicine by Dr. Josh Axe, Ty Bollinger and Jordan Rubin.
If you would like to try a sample of essential oils, I have a very limited supply of Young Livings Thieve’s essential oils, that I can let you try, just reply to this blog post and I will respond. If you are interested in learning more about Young Living oils, please click this link.
Not only can you spring clean your home without chemical, you can save money too. Home made products are easy to make and can be cost pennies (saving your wallet too).
