Yes! Spring is here! I love it! However, it seems that all the lingering residue of the closed-in months of winter is more evident with radiant Spring sun shining on it! Dust bunnies, cobwebs and paw prints, oh my! I need to do some deep cleaning!

Even as a young girl I recognized that momma had her hands full trying to raise six children alone, work away from home and maintain our household. Consequently, I liked to do whatever I could to help her. Plus, I simply liked being by her side! We were often partners in ironing, cooking, sweeping, etc. My least favorite job, however, was dusting! I just didn’t quite understand the necessity of the tedious process. Out of my weariness over the whole ordeal, one day I asked momma, “Why do we have to move all this stuff and then just put it back in the very same place again?”

While I’m still not real fond of dusting, I’m even less attracted to the idea of living in a toxic environment resulting from commercial cleaning products! It isn’t necessary to use products that irritate our skin, burn our eyes or damage our lungs in order to enjoy sparkling clean kitchen counters, cabinets, refrigerator shelves, blinds, moldings and fan blades. Replacing conventional cleaning products with something much healthier for my family and the environment is fun and inexpensive! With a few basic ingredients, it’s easy to create an all-purpose aromatic and disinfecting solution:

• 16 oz. spray bottle
• 14 oz. – 1:1 solution of distilled white vinegar and water
• 7 drops of tea tree essential oil
• 7 drops of lavender essential oil
• 7 drops of lemon essential oil

Not only does our body benefit from using essential oils in cleaning products, we’re doing a favor for the natural waterways and the precious wildlife our Creator has given us to enjoy when we eliminate the expensive, hazardous products on the market today.
