I want to welcome all of those visiting today from Freshly Grown, I’m so happy you stopped by!
I have joined with several other bloggers to bring you this “Detox Your Home” Blog series filled with amazing recipes to help you rid your home of nasty toxic chemicals and get it to spring ready!
It has been a very LONG winter and I almost began to think spring might never arrive. Thankfully now that April is here I can really begin to believe spring is too, and that means it is time for some spring cleaning. I’ve been waiting for the day that I can open all our windows again. It was 37 degrees here today, so I think I will have to wait a little longer for those days.
Not only am I looking to clean my home of the dirt that has been trapped inside with me all winter, but I have begun to spring clean my cleaning supplies as well. I am pretty sure they multiplied in the closet over the winter. I have SO many different cleaners for just about anything.
I am so excited about my new Thieves Household Cleaner which will now replace pretty much any other cleaner I used to use.
Have you ever taken a look at what’s in your favorite household cleaners?
The ingredients have been linked to things like ADHD, Allergies, Eczema, Asthma, and more. All I know for sure is that when I am cleaning my bathroom with my old cleaners I find it very difficult to breathe. That alone is a good indication to me that it’s probably not something I am supposed to be breathing in.
As I mentioned last week I have jumped on the Essential Oils Bandwagon and continue to be amazed at all the ways I can incorporate them into my home and daily life including everyday cleaning routines.
I am SO excited to share my favorite Thieves Household Cleaner with you! This cleaner is not only frugal and super easy to make, but it is actually good for your family too!
The Thieves Story
Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.
I can remember when I used to have to open the windows to clean because the fumes were so strong. Now I can open the windows because I want to let the fresh air in and not because I have to in order to breathe.
There are so many ways that you can easily remove the chemicals in your home that hurt our families. Using this homemade Thieves Cleaner is my secret cleaning weapon, and I can’t wait for you to try it too.
I buy one bottle of Thieves Concentrate and I am able to use it to clean pretty much everything in my home. I just make sure I have my Regular Strength (Light Recipe) bottle on hand for quick and easy clean up jobs. And then I also have my extra strength (Medium Recipe) bottle on hand for those tougher jobs that require just a little more to get them done.
Oh, and did I mention this stuff smells ah-mazing?!!!
Here is my bathroom sink before cleaning it with the Medium strength Thieves Household Cleaner.
It’s dirty! There is a bit of a yellowish stain around the drain and the faucet has lost it’s shine.
This was after using the Medium Degreasing Recipe below.
