All Purpose Cleaner Recipe

All Purpose Cleaner Recipe

When it comes to cleaning, most of us are used to just picking up cleaning products from the supermarket when we’re out shopping for food. But did you know that most traditional cleaning products contain a lot of toxic ingredients? It can be pretty hard to find a natural alternative in supermarkets, and in some countries it’s even difficult to find any natural cleaning products at all. You’ll be happy to know there is an alternative: you can easily make your own! We all want our homes to be safe, and supportive environments.   The way we look after our homes is part of that process,  creating a clean and safe environment at home without exposing  ourselves s and our kids  to toxic particles is a big part of that. 

You might wonder, are natural cleaning products effective?
The answer is YES! If you use the right ingredients, of course. Take lemons for example, they are natural grease removers. It’s why you see the designated BBQ griller in your family clean the BBQ by wiping the grill with half a lemon every single time. It’s not for the taste, it’s to get that grease off the grill. It takes about 24 of those grease-removing lemons to make one 8ml bottle of Bio Scents organic lemon essential oil;  it’s the ultimate natural cleaning ingredient for your DIY cleaning product.

Switching to a natural, strong, efficient and effective cleaning solution will not only remove dirt, grease and germs like any chemical product, it also won’t release any toxic particles in your home.  It will smell beautifully and naturally uplifting too. To help you along, we’re sharing our own natural cleaning recipe that’s super easy to DIY at home. Keep your home clean & your air cleaner!
