Things I Want to Try: Homemade Cleaner with a Spiritual Cleansing boost

“The simplest recipe for a natural cleaner is to make a paste out of baking soda and water (with a little Borax mixed in if you need extra oomph to get out hard water stains or clean a particularly grungy area). It is easy to add a drop or two of essential oil to make this “green” cleanser a little more magickal (not to mention better smelling).”

– Deborah Blake, The Goddess is in the Details: Wisdom for the Everyday Witch

She mentions a few other things like:

  • Making a window cleaner with equal parts white vinegar and water with a drop or two of dishwashing soap and some lemon juice too.
  • Adding a drop or two of essential oil on a broom or to mop water.
  • Making “a carpet freshner by adding cleansing or uplifting oils to baking soda. Just sprinkle it on the carpet, leave for a bit, and then vaccum as usual.

These are all in her book along with other tips in Chapter 9. When I make any of these I will post with a review.

This is my blog as an Eclectic Pagan. I found the path in 2009. I love to learn, read, explore, and create. I'm a college student right now and I'm always looking for more ways to 'be green' and connect more with the God/Goddess. I'm using this almost as my publicly viewed book of shadows. Enjoy!
