Spring Cleaning


March has finally arrived!  Spring Cleaning will soon be upon us.  To avoid a nose-full of crazy chemicals, while you tackle your chore list, I have created 3 simple ‘Habitat at Home’ NATURAL cleaner recipes for you; plus a nice room spray to use at the end. They are all very effective and safe.

To supplement the cleaners, I have also created a new way to keep to that chore list.  A list you cannot escape.  A list you will encounter every time you go to grab the bucket under the sink.  It will be there, staring you in the face, as a helpful reminder until it’s complete!

I present to you, The Spring Cleaning ‘Bucket List’, complete with your own homemade, safe and natural cleaners:

Let’s get started with the recipes. . .

1. Window Cleaner


1/2 cup water

1/4 cup alcohol

1/2 cup vinegar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

Mix all the ingredients together in a spray bottle.

Shake before use.

 2. All-Purpose Cleaner


1/2 vinegar

1/2 water

15 drops sandalwood essential oil

Before & After

The sandalwood smells great, and is wonderful on wood furniture.

3. Bathroom Tile Cleaner


1/2 baking soda

1/2 water

Mix ingredients together.

I used a chef’s condiments bottle for this, which worked very nicely.

Shake before use.

Before & After

With very little elbow grease, the tub stains cleaned right up. The baking soda does the work for you!

The Cleaning Basics Trio is complete.

Now, for a little ambiance…
