Green Machine Wanna Be!!

20140217-233013.jpg

For awhile now I have wanted to start using “green” products and food in my home but who has time for that??? Not me. But this past year my family had been sicker than usual so my desire to go green skyrocketed. Since Pinterest is one of my best friends I went on a pinning frenzy!!

I have pinned many things in the past with the thought of going back later to read that or print that but it rarely happens. Until today…we’ll actually until about a month ago but that doesn’t sound as good as “today!”

Anyway where was I going with this? Oh yes…I have reorganized my boards on Pinterest and I have been reading and printing!!! We have been trying many of the tips and tricks to help simplify our lives but the best part is that today (it really was today) I made my first green all purpose cleaner!!! The sticky stuff on my cedar chest, made by my grandpa who is no longer with us, threw me over the edge.

The cleaners you buy in the store stink so bad I can’t help but wonder what I am breathing in. You know it is bad when your 14 year old daughter says we should try something else!!

Wow!! Making the cleaner was not only easy but it was cheap AND I had all 3 ingredients on hand and I bet you do too!!

All Purpose Cleaner~from Pinterest
1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
2 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice

Mix well and put in a spray bottle. You can clean anything even sticky stuff that only a few small boys would know where it came from!! This was a good day.

If you want to see what really cool things I have pinned check out my Pinterest page!!

God bless you all and have good week!
