Cleaners sans Chemicals
* 1 teaspoon of essential oil of mint or rosemary with 1 cup of white vinegar. * Lemon juice in cleansers acts as an antibacterial. The acidity helps to pull up and dissolve stains. Basil, chamomile, clary sage, eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, rose geranium, thyme act as disinfectant herbs. * For more difficult stains, straight vinegar is particularly effective.
