All Natural All Purpose Cleaner

I am slowly eliminating all chemical cleaners from my life. This all purpose cleaner is wonderful for cleaning kitchens and bathrooms. It takes just a few minutes to make and costs only pennies. The best part is that it really works!  The label makes clear what is in the bottle. The photo is me when I was 3 or 4 years old…I have always loved playing house!   – Peg

Here is the recipe for All Natural All Purpose Cleaner:

1 cup Vinegar –   keeps hard water buildup at bay

1/4 cup Liquid Castile Soap   – it is natural and biodegradeable

20 drops essential oil – lemon, orange or lime  – use any scent  that you like
