Spring Update

March 27, 2012

First, here are some more pictures to add to my spring photo check list.  I posted more HERE and HERE.

Second, let's talk about spring cleaning!

I make my own cleaning supplies (a lot but not all) because I don't want to use a lot of harsh chemicals in my home.  Although, none of them are baby safe but they are safer than what is sold at the store.  We've been using a lot of these for nearly 3 years now.  (I do use Mrs. Meyers sometimes too.)

All purpose cleaner:
1 teaspoon borax
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vinegar
1/4 teaspoon liquid dish soap
1 cup hot water

Granite cleaner:
(found HERE)
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
3 drops of dish detergent
1 cup water

-This has been my favorite so far.  It keeps the granite super shiny.  Smudge and film free.  Love it.-

Stainless cleaner:
white vinegar

(Also from my mom)
2 cups water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon liquid detergent

Nice!! Thanks for sharing. I try to buy plant-derived products for cleaning but have recently gotten into researching making my own to be more budget-friendly. With this I've been researching safety of products (chemical-wise). I am currently throwing out SO MANY products!
