“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.
