my super-duper favorite cleaner

Once upon a time I went to Bible School here…

That is the castle of Capernwray Bible School in Lancashire.
{That’s in the Queen’s Country}

England did me in on SO many things.

I fell in love with 11 men.
These men to be precise…

The BEST soccer/football club in the world.
the end.

I also discovered a love for a few shows on British tele {that’s British for TV}
Like How Clean is Your House
Featuring Kim and Aggie…

They clean houses. Really, really, really dirty houses.
They convinced me that I should be using as many all natural things to clean my house as I can.
And that I should wear gloves while doing the dishes.
And that I should clean my shower while wearing heels
and while flirting with my hubby.
[I may or may not use any combination of the aforementioned cleaning techniques.]

They most definitely taught me the recipe for my favorite 2 cleaners.

Here is the cast of characters for 1 of them
My FAVORITE multipurpose cleaner:
A spray bottle filled 1/2 way with warm water
White vinegar {we buy in bulk; can you tell?}
Your basic run of the mill dish soap
An essential oil of your choosing {I love me some tea tree and lavender!}
20 Mule Team Borax {does anyone know what the 20 mule team is all about?}

Take your spray bottle filled 1/2 way with water,
add 2 tablespoons of Borax,
shake it, shake it, {insert Outkast lyric here}
it takes a while to dissolve so you could throw your own dance party if you’d like
once it’s incorporated add 2-3 drops of dish soap
(seriously, any more than that and you’ll have a sudsy mess)
add 20-30 drops of essential oil {HELLO disinfectant!}
top her off with the vinegar
{cue Hey Ya! and continue to shake}

The BEST multipurpose cleaner!
{no, seriously, you’ll never go back}
