Maybe you're like me.
You've come to the point of being kind of leery of all those chemicals in our cleaning products.  You might ask yourself, "Do I really want to be breathing this?"  
But, you want a sparkly clean home.
What do you do?
Enter, natural cleaners, that you can make in your kitchen, and moreover that are safe for your kids to use!
Now if they make a mess, they can clean it up!
Here are a few simple recipes:

For Cleaning sinks, toilets and bathtubs:
Fill a clean, old medium-sized parmesan bottle with baking soda.  Add 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil.  Shake well and store in the cabinet under the sink.  My little brothers use this all the time on their bathroom cleanup chore.  

Disinfectant Spray:
Fill a spray bottle with water.  Add 8 drops of grapefruit seed extract.  
Shake vigorously and let sit for 15 minutes.
Shake before using.
Feel free to add essential oil if you like.  I think that grapefruit would be a good scent for the kitchen.  But then I like citrus smells!

Window Cleaner:
Fill a spray bottle half full of vinegar.
Fill the rest up with water.
Shake well!


This is just the tiny tip of the iceberg in light of how many natural cleaner recipes are available these days!
