Natural Cleaning Solution

One of first things I did to reduce the amount of chemicals in our home was to throw out the Lysol wipes and start making my own cleaning spray. Not only has this made cleaning my home safer, but it has saved money as well, and is so simple.

I take a large spray bottle and fill it 2/3 of the way full with white vinegar. Fill the rest with distilled water. Add 8-10 drops each of tea tree and lavender oils. The vinegar is a disinfectant, and the essential oils both have antibacterial properties.
