DIY Non-Toxic Cleaning Wipes
Cleaning wipes are all so convenient, but many brands use chemicals that are irritating to the skin and respiratory system. Actually, the Environmental Working Group examined over 400 general cleaning products and gave over half of these a failing grade for toxicity! One popular commodity with ‘Green’ in its own brand name obtained a top concern warning for inducing c****r! Other neglecting brands used ammonium that is a respiratory irritant and almost all the brands comprised artificial fragrance ingredients that are frequently linked to hormone disruption. That doesn’t sound very ‘blank’ currently does it?!
This all-natural recipe will wash your surfaces without leaving any harmful residue. Plus, it’s easy to create and you may either mulch your napkins for a super-convenient option or you can go additional green and re-use rags.
You are likely to enjoy cleaning up using all these non-toxic Cleaning Wipes — it makes cleaning such a breeze!
The acidity of the vinegar can help to purify, neutralize odours and create a streak-free glow. Most soaps are alkaline, meaning that if we mix them together with vinegar, the efficacy of both ingredients is reduced. But this recipe uses Sal Suds which is a detergent, not a soap. The detergent can help to remove dirt and lift away stubborn stains. The anti inflammatory essential oils will include a beautiful all-natural odor to freshen distances and also increase germ-fighting power. I can hear you cheering from afar, mamas!
- 1/2 pack Bounty Quilted NapkinsDecision
- Large reusable container**
- 1 1/4 cup distilled water***
- 1 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 tsp Sal Suds****
- 15 drops lemon essential oil
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops chamomile essential oil
- On Your mailbox, add water, vinegar, Sal Suds and vital oils and stir to combine.
- For instance, utilize 1/2 a bunch of Bounty napkins (80 napkins). Put the liquid into the base of the container, and place napkins on the top and push down. As napkins absorb fluid, their dimension will compress. Then pour the remaining liquid on the top of the pile. For reusable rags, pour all of the liquid into the container and pile rags at the top. Enable them to absorb the liquid, including more rags till they are damp-wet although not overly saturated.
- To use, pull a wipe out and wash surfaces, clogs, sinks along with any other wreck thrown away! Either mulch your napkin wipes or machine clean pliers and reuse.
