Green Cleaning

More books just came in on Friday! We sold out and had to reorder our "Naturally Clean Home"

Since we had Catherine over for a class on herbal cleaners, we've been obsessed with these good-for-you & oh-so wonderful smelling cleaners!

When we saw this book we snapped it up - and since then it's been in our #1 spot of best sellers in the store!

Thought we'd share one of the recipes for you.....

Lavender Fabric Softener

1 gallon vinegar
20 drops lavender essential oil

"Add the lavender essential oil to the vinegar right in the container and you've got instant fabric softener! Shake well before using. For a large load, add 1 cup curing the rinse cycle; use 1/2 cup during the rinse cycle for smaller loads."

Did you know that vinegar is the fabric softener of choice.....not only is it nontoxic, it also removes soap residue in the rinse cycle and helps to prevent static cling in the dryer!

Got to tell you that since my Daughter ended up in the ER with a horrible allergy attack, vinegar became my best friend. I clean everything with it now!!!
