Before The Holidays – 1 Week Out

Last week I started with the yard and repairs. This week I’ve moved inside for some deep cleaning. It’s time to break out, refill and use all those nice natural chemical free cleaners I’ve been making.

To make natural cleaners yourself look HERE.

To buy some I’ve already made, look HERE.

The goal for today is to restock all my cleaning supplies, make a list of what I want to accomplish this week and start from the ceiling down. I think sweeping cobwebs out of the corners and cleaning the ceiling fans is a great start.

The 1 Week Out/Holidays are Coming/Deep Cleaning List:CWDirtyFan
M-Restock cleaning supplies
M-Sweep cobwebs
M-Clean ceiling fans and fixtures
M-Start by cleaning 1 cabinet inside and out
T-Wash Holiday linens

R-Wipe down all furniture and bookshelves
F-Clean upholstery
F-Make sure bathrooms are stocked
F-Finish up anything that isn’t done

Making Natural Glass Cleaner

Streak-free, Clean smelling, all natural glass cleaner.

You’ll Need:

3 cups water

1 cup vinegar

essential oils – I use about 5 drops of Tea Tree and 5 drops of citrus scented.

Spray bottle

Process:

Pour all ingredients into bottle and give a little swirl.

To Use:

Spray and wipe with a paper towel or glass cloth.

Making Carpet & Upholstery Flea Powder

You’ll need:

1 cup either powdered salt, Borax or Diatomaceous Earth

20 drops of essential oils

bowl

airtight container

Process:

Pour powder into a bowl being careful not to inhale. If using salt, you’ll have to grind it first. I use a  coffee grinder.

Add 20 drops off various essential oils. The best oils for flea treatments are lemon, rosemary, citronella, cedar, peppermint and geranium.

Mix well

Pour into an airtight container. Something with a shaker top would work well.

To use:

Sprinkle lightly all over carpet ,on and under furniture and cushions, in areas where pets lay and in pet beds.

Leave overnight.

Vacuum.

You can leave it longer in places like behind furniture and under cushions that are not accessible to people, kids and small pets.

*As with all powders, be careful not to inhale while mixing and pouring.

Buy some already made HERE!
