I used to like to clean. A lot. I still enjoy it at times, when it's not rushed and it's done with love. I sure like cleaning more when it provides aromatherapy! That's why I'm nuts about this multi-purpose powder. It's nothing more than good old-fashioned baking soda and Young Living Essential Oils in a cute mason jar with a shaker top. I keep these stashed through out the house, and when it's time for something, I grab it because it's there! I use it for a non-toxic carpet freshener, as part of my super sink scrub, glass cooktop cleaner, (it can be used on a grill, too) all OVER in the bathrooms and when not in use, it just sits around smelling pretty! (Hee hee...so yeah...I keep one in my teenage son's room!)
MULTI PURPOSE POWER POWDER:
You're going to see the SAME ingredients listed with several uses, and many oils fit right in it. Thieves, Purification, Lemon, Orange, Citrus Fresh....which oils are you feeling like using today? Simply whisk together in a glass or stainless steel bowl, 8-10 drops of essential oil per cup of baking soda. If you like it stronger, (and I do!) go for it! There is no such thing as 'messing this recipe up', but I do want you to use your oil the wisest way for you. Always test your surfaces for discoloration etc, and use your noggin! < --- disclaimer pro
Sprinkle and let it sit for 20 minutes or so and vacuum. It works GREAT - better than toxic carpet deodorizers or air fresheners. If you're not sure why those are such a bad idea, check out this article from Dr. Axe. (If you can get past the obnoxious prompts and ads, that is. Sorry, Doc. Truth!) What goes on our floors may go more places than you care to imagine. Especially if you have pets or kids.
Note: In my experience premixing the wet & dry is not as effective or easy to work with. The oomph is missing, it separates, it clumps. I like keeping mine dry and adding desired liquids as needed.
My OTHER favorite part about this is that what I rinse down the sink is just going to flow into the sewage system and do more good! Just like what we wash down the sink that ISN'T good gets into our food and water supply. :-/ I don't mean to send you on an all-expense paid guilt-trip, it's just that we KNOW better now and it's time to DO better.
Sprinkle, brush & flush. The end. :-) (I love Tea Tree for toity)
*GLASS COOKTOP & STOVE CLEANER:
Yet ANOTHER USE for baking soda and EO! How about a safe glass cooktop cleaner made with Young Living Lemon Essential Oil and baking soda!? WHAT a savings in dollars and toxins! I almost can't believe it worked, but... you already know!! I used the MULTI PURPOSE POWER POWDER AS IS and added extra oil to moisten. Orange worked even better than lemon. Now tell me...could you scrub your stove with Carpet Fresh?
*Just mentioning, not suggesting, I have seen a straight edged razor tool used to remove the top layers of burnt crud on a glass cooktop.* I've done that too, but I prefer not to let mine get that bad. I wanted to give baking soda and EO a try on my cooktop after seeing this:
*GRILL, STOVE & OVEN CLEANER:
Mason jars are way cuter than the storebought chemical cleaner bottles/cans anyway, they save our landfills and this is so CHEAP! Heck yeah! If you have a 'parmesean' shaker lid try that for a jar topper. I hear it works!
If you're worried about using GLASS while cleaning, I get it. A little tip for glass jars & bottles is to cover them in decorative duct tape. :-) That makes your glass shatterproof, and pretty!
