It’s a new year, right?! So I should have some sort of New Years Resolution, right? Well, ok, I’ll admit it….I do….it’s not your conventional resolution, oh no, (although I do have the usual “aims” for the year, you know the stuff, continue to loose weight, cut out the red wine….really, I don’t need to go on do I?! Good!
My New Years Resolution is to ditch the toxic hideousness of the cleaning product world and make my own household cleaning stuff
You see, this may sound like an easy thing to do…but… I have a confession….I simply can’t resist buying cleaning products! It’s like an obsession… I am Monica Gellar (Friends) except I am a little more on the plump side and well, I have blonde hair, but other than that I could be her twin!!
This is a complete challenge for me…do I actually trust that white vinegar is going to be as effective for my kitchen surfaces as my anti-bac spray? Hmmmmm vote is out there but, I will reserve judgement and I know that in my heart having toxic chemicals floating around your home in the form of cleaning products is no good for any of us and that my friends will have to be the voice of reason!
So there you have it….no going back…today I emptied my beloved multi-task cleaner down the kitchen sink, scrubbed off the label and replaced it with my own “mummy’s eco kitchen cleaner” label, half filled it with white vinegar then topped it up with water and bobs your uncle…we’re good to go……
It’s a start, right?! Look out for the next instalment of my journey into the eco world…….I’m a little bit scared if I’m honest ……………
Below are a couple of links to some websites that explain how to make your own natural household cleaning products:
