Improve Health Cut Down On Environmental Toxins

Whether you want to increase your fertility, are already pregnant, or just want to improve your own health- cut down on environmental toxins in your household by using natural cleaning agents. Plus- it's better for the environment, and cheaper! I love teaching my children how to clean and knowing that the substances they are using are not bad for their health or mine.
I can clean my whole house with these natural and safe ingredients: White distilled vinegar, baking soda, soap, a chemical free detergent, lemons, and some essential oils (Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Mint, Lavender). I use essential oils because I like the smell of lavender, mint, and eucalyptus- but the tea tree oil is great for getting rid of mold or mildew. Basic recipes (see the link to mothering.com for a more complete overview of each cleaning agent and some different ideas for use):
Glass,Window, All-Purpose Cleaner
1/4 c vinegar
juice from one lemon strained
water
Mix them all in a spray bottle and voila!

Sink, Tub, and Toilet Cleaner
1 c baking soda
2-3 Tbs chemical free detergent
couple drops of eucalyptus or mint
Stir (and possibly add more or less detergent) until you get the consistency of frosting. Scoop onto a sponge to clean surfaces, or plop onto the side of the toilet and use the toilet brush to scrub around the inside of the bowl.

Wood Polish
1 Tbs oil
1/4 c vinegar or lemon juice (I think lemon juice smells better)
drop of Lavender or Tea Tree Oil
Mix in a glass jar or Tupperware and dip your cloth into it.

Alternatively, you could just use Murphy's Oil Soap- mix 1/4 c of it with water in a spray bottle. Murphy's Oil Soap is 98% naturally derived ingredients, phosphate free, and biodegradable.

In Kuwait: I bought a large bottle of distilled white vinegar at the Sultan Center Wholesale Center over on the 6th Ring Road and Hwy 65. For a large box of cleaning strength baking soda, go to the Ace Hardware over by the Avenues. They also have Murphy's Oil Soap there and chemical free detergents and dish soaps. I bought my essential oils at Bath and Body Works.
