Making your own household cleansers is easy on the earth and on the wallet. It’s also a simple way to reduce toxins in the home.
Try this all-purpose recipe from the nonprofit group Healthy Child Healthy World:
Fill a spray bottle with:
- 2 teaspoons of borax
- 4 tablespoons of white vinegar (a natural degreaser and disinfectant)
- 3 to 4 cups of hot water for an all-purpose cleanser.
- If more cleaning power is needed, add ¼ teaspoon of liquid castile soap.
