If you are tired of spending your money on toxic household cleaners, here is an all-purpose cleaner recipe that my friend Cynthia Loving of Loving Scents sent me.

Lavender All-Purpose Cleaner

2 teaspoons of white vinegar

1 teaspoon Borax powder

1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap

10 drops lavender essential oil

5 drop lemon essential or 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Mix the white vinegar and borax together in a 16 oz. bottle.  Fill the bottle 3/4 full with hot distilled waterShake well until the borax is dissolved and let it come to room temperature.  Add the liquid Castile soap and essential oils to the solution and shake well.  Use as you would any other all-purpose cleaner.
