All-Purpose Cleaner

Here is a recipe for and easy and effective all-purpose spray cleaner. It's the only cleaner I use. It's tough, effective and can whoop a counter clean faster than yo' mama.

I use this all-purpose cleaner on windows, counters, walls, doorknobs, and children. I also use it as an air fresh'ner.

All-Purpose Cleaner
1 squirt of liquid soap (I use Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap)
15-20 drops essential oil
2 cups water

Give a little squirt of liquid soap into a squirt bottle--maybe a couple Tablespoons. Add 15-20 drops of your favorite essential oil. I use eucalyptus, camphor, orange or lavender. Then add enough water to fill to the top. Shake gently to blend.

I challenge you to clear out your under-the-kitchen-counter area today and replace all those nasty old bottles of chem-i-clean with this fabulous, fresh spray cleaner.

It's good to hear how you are doing, Heather! I'm glad to know you still exist. I'm curious to know how old your kids are now. I'll check your blog again later.

OOPS!!!!! I couldn't remember my password for blogger, so I used my sis-in-law's, instead -- the one we use on her blog site for a group of us who are trying to lose weight! THAT'S why my post says "the loser".....not because I have a horribly sad and pathetic self image!
