Chemical free cleaning

Safe cleaning products above

Have you ever thought what all the chemicals in cleaning products
 are doing to the environment and our health?

A few years ago,I decided to change the way I cleaned my home

I tossed out all the expensive, poison products that filled my cupboards.
I replaced them with Vinegar, salt, baking soda,and a few other safe products like
eucalyptus oil,

I scrubbed the tiles behind my kitchen sink today using salt and vinegar, 
(not only for fish and chips :) 
a scrubbing brush and elbow grease.

This is what they looked like before

And after

I use this method for the bathroom too.
I wipe down bench tops with vinegar and soak the dishcloth with it too

It's a natural antiseptic and disinfectant.

I have written a book that includes hints and recipes and much more

It's a great help,especially for working mums

It is available from my website http//
price $10

Happy Cleaning xx jeanette

Hi Jeanetteann,
I'm ordering 2 copies of your cleaning book.
I agree we should be using healthier cleaning products.
Looking forward to learning some new ways of doing things.
Have a good week

Hello Jeanetteann,
thanks for linking this to Heart & Home.
I am very interested in using natural cleaning products as I have chemical sensitivities and asthma.
I use vinegar too, but even that will set me off on a reaction at times.
Your book sounds great and I hope it sells really well for you :-)

Have a blessed week ..Trish x

I use to use a lot of homemade cleaning mixutres. Then I became lazy and started using pruchased ones. You are so right, they are so bad for us and the environment. I really need to go back to the basics. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. (Said that on another post by mistake) Sorry! Blonde moment. lol!

You're right, there are a lot of chemicals we use we could try better, healthier options. I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
