Save money with this lovely smelling spray that is good for your home, your health, and the environment! Use whatever essential oils you like. Lavender is a natural disinfectant and very relaxing. Tea tree oil is a natural anti-fungal, great for mildewy bathroom surfaces.

Chemical-free! Because Pinesol and Mr. Clean make me gag. Add some essential oils (I like lavender) if you desire a prettier smell. From Vegetarian Times magazine.

Recipe #320192

3 Reviews |  By Prose

This stuff is wonderful! Very economical and perfect for people with sensitive skin/allergies or those who wish to "go green," and it really works! Soap flakes are often available at craft stores. Use whatever essential oils you like. Lavender, orange, lemon, and grapefruit are really nice for laundry. Recipe from one of my husband's classmates.

Recipe #320198

I found this recipe somewhere on the net, but don't remember where.

Recipe #312089

Nourishing lotion with a mild, nutty scent from Janice Cox's Natural Beauty at Home.

Recipe #266301

This is a miracle recipe for getting rid of those pesty ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, and put the solution on and they will be gone.

Recipe #203233

This recipe found in the Toronto Star. It comes from Green Clean by Linda and Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin. Quote: "For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death." Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962 Note: After the reviewers' comments, I've changed the number of drop of essential oils)

Recipe #233245

you can change the fruits to make it different

Recipe #225040

This easy cleaner helps keep wooden cutting boards freshened and sanitized. The lemon and essential oil sanitize the board while the abrasive action of the salt cleans it. If you use your cutting board for raw meat, get into the habit of doing this after each use. Never use the same cutting board for fresh fruits and vegetables as is used for raw meat.

Recipe #197402

I'd heard that Grapefruit Seed Extract was very effective for cleaning produce (http://www.pureliquidgold.com/), so I set out to find a Veggie Wash recipe to refill my expensive store-bought bottle. I found this one at www.veganforum.com.

Recipe #163807

This came from Karen Logan's "Clean House, Clean Planet". I mixed up a batch to try it one day and haven't used commercial all-purpose cleaners since. Good essential oil combos are tea tree and peppermint, orange and cinnamon, and lavender and lemon. Keep out of reach of small children as the borax is somewhat toxic.

A natural antibacterial cleanser that helps you clean your home without hurting the planet. The aroma of the essential oils makes the cleaning experience a pleasure. (Use only essential oils.)

Recipe #185505

For lung congestion a salve or a massage oil containing essential oils can be rubbed over the chest, back and throat. The oils will be absorbed through the skin and lungs as the vapor is inhaled. Place a flannel fabric on the chest after rubbing in the oil to increase warmth. (Use only essential oils and never undiluted.)

Recipe #185369

A good homemade recipe. I use a clean extra used vinegar bottle. If you try this tell me what you think. Makes about a gallon.

Recipe #179890

This is not a soap but is designed to remove in-grained dirt, leaving hands soft and lightly perfumed. (I've not tried this yet but posting it so I can find it again. Sugar quantity is a guestimate. Zaar doesn't like dried Yarrow!)

I came up with this recipe when my boys were just being…boys. Their clothing was not getting clean with the standard Fels soap recipe. I found myself adding more of this and that and so I just designed this recipe. I make no claims except that it works for my messy, grass stained, paint slathered, dirt ground in boys clothes.

Recipe #168622

As much as I love the aroma of a fireplace, bonfire, or our woodburning stove, I also love to throw in a few herbal fire bundles once in a while. Make Valentine's Day more romantic, spice it up in the fall, or try different herbs for a Christmasy feel. It's relaxing, and a nice way to fragrance your home the natural way. And in Native American tradition, sage bundles are very cleansing to your surroundings.

Recipe #83035

Found this on the web. Maybe it will work!

This stuff is expensive to buy, I had to search to find a replacement. Either works great. I prefer the fabric softener solution (I never have vodka in the house)
