I love my homemade 🍋nontoxic cleaning🍋products!
i now enjoy the aromatherapy of cleaning and don't get a headache from the all of the toxic chemicals! they are so easy to make!
Our favorite household cleaner - free from dangerous and synthetic ingredients so it's safe to use without gloves and actually healthy to breathe in 🙌🏼 i literally use this to clean my whole house - bathrooms (shower, toilet, counters, sink, mirror), kitchen, high chair tray, toys...you get the picture. and it's a concentrate so i only use one capful per glass spray bottle and it lasts forever #winning // tell me your least favorite thing to clean below! mine is high chair food scraps 😷
Safer/healthier is better! open three cupboards in your house and look at the ingredients on the labels of your products. how many ingredients do you not know how to pronounce or even know what they are? you could be using a product that is actually toxic for the environment or your body! here are two that i ditched and switched to thieves cleaner with young living. #youngliving#younglivingproducts#ditch#switch
I'm calling this one a thursday tidbit. think #tuesdaytip except for it's thursday. 👌🏻 the credit for this goes to a brilliant person who shared this in one of our amazing facebook groups (this #teamyl community is ah-mazing. 💯🙌🏻). here it goes. cleaning your makeup brushes just got easier. all you need is some thieves foaming hand soap and you know... water. 💧 it's so easy and pretty intuitive that directions are overkill, but let's cover all the bases.
1️⃣ add a pump of soap to your palm
2️⃣ swirl that brush around in the soap
3️⃣ rinse rinse rinse 💦
4️⃣ squeeze out excess water
5️⃣ reshape brushes
6️⃣ lay flat to dry
and there you have it! easy peasy lemon squeezey. 🍋
So, i ran out of the thieves dishwashing powder. don't worry, i added 2 to my order next month since it just came back in stock. 🙌🏼 i refuse to go buy a dishwashing detergent loaded with toxic chemicals to wash my dishes that we, you know, eat off of. so, until my order arrives next month i'll be using this combo 👌🏼 i poured a couple capfuls of thieves household cleaner into my dishwasher dispenser, added about a tablespoon of baking soda, mixed it around, and turned it on. the bowl and spoon in the photo came out afterwards... take note of how shiny and clean they are 😉
Did you know how easy it is to make your own all purpose cleaner? in this recipe add 2 cups distilled water and 30 drops of essential oil to a glass spray bottle and shake. super simple, right? (for this one i used 10 drops each of lemon, onguard, and melaleuca. for three more easy to make all- purpose cleaners, check out my latest blog post. link in my profile. 👆
Who has stainless steel appliances? i purposely didn't buy stainless steel just for this reason. but there's hope for those of you who do! 😅 look at this before and after. this ultra power plus detergent is so versatile, you can even use it with an envirocloth as pictured to clean your stainless steel. i love that this detergent is completely filler free so you are not cleaning with a toxic product.
💧💦 most of our products are extremely versatile and can be used for tons of different things, which saves you time and money. ❤️
Starting off my back to school series with the oil everyone must have!!! i cannot stress this enough. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
💧on guard is the protective blend and it is amazing and wonderful and powerful and i could go on and on and on 🤷🏻♀️...this oil will help strengthen your immune system and help your body get rid of nasty bugs much quicker! here are some ways to use it:
👦🏻👧🏼for kids: apply a drop (diluted) topically to the bottom of their feet and down the spine every morning. and during cold & flu season...morning and night. adults you can totally do this too!
👩🏻👨🏼parents: diffuse this oil in your home when you know something is going around. or if your kiddos do come home with a little bug. it will help k**l those germs!
👩🏻🏫teachers: diffuse, diffuse, diffuse!!! keep those germs at bay...and your classroom will smell so great too!!! many teachers have noticed a huge difference in absences with students when they diffuse this oil consistently. make your own cleaner with on guard to spray and disinfect those desks! and you can even make your own hand sanitizer to keep on your desk! so many possibilities!!!
tag a teacher you know! we can't keep this amazing oil to ourselves...and tell me, if you are a teacher...do you diffuse in your classroom?
Obsession alert! baking soda as a kitchen cleaner! 😮 all the grease spatter on my oven and the side of my fridge- gone! just mix baking soda and water to make a paste. i used an old cloth rag to scrub, no paper towel waste needed! and the bowl i used to make the paste just goes in the dishwasher because it's a completely nontoxic cleaner!
1st pic is the side of my fridge.. the left side has been cleaned, the right side still in need of baking soda treatment! ☺️ 2nd & 3rd is the before and after of that awful stove grime that i had yet to find a cleaner strong enough! last pic.. just admiring my work from afar. the paste also worked on the sticky exhaust residue on the microwave! #cleankitchen#zerowastelifestyle#nontoxiccleaning#cheapproduct#noplastic#bakingsodascrub#gogreen#imobsessed .♻️.
