Household tip!

I'm really trying to avoid harsh chemical cleaners in the house and so lately we have been using lots of white vinegar, lemon, baking soda, and borax.

I have a handy little tip for making and dispensing your own cleaner:
Mix one cup of baking soda with the zest of one lemon. Clean out an old shaker container, like the ones from Parmesan cheese or herbs. Pour the baking soda mix into the container and seal. When you need to clean, just pop open the top and shake what you need onto the dirty surface, mix with a little water, scrub and rinse.
Your kitchen and bathroom surfaces will SHINE!

It keeps the baking soda from getting lumpy, it's chemical free, and the smell is absolutely incredible!
