Natural and Chemical Free Cleaning for Your Home

Posted May 23, 2018 by Guest Poster - 8 comments

Hi Prairie Wife readers, this is Lindsey here for my monthly guest post about all things natural!

Today I’m going to talk about using ALL things natural and chemical free to help you clean your home. 

Have you ever stopped to think about ALL the chemicals that are present in your home??

I realized that even though I thought I was choosing the most natural cleaners, there were still hidden chemicals in them.  I have learned that we need to be conscious of what’s in our house. What we introduce into our homes every day can create a really toxic environment, and many of us are completely unaware of what we are doing.  When I first heard this, I began a mission to reduce the amount of chemicals that are present in my home.

Thieves Young LivingThis is why I am totally obsessed with Thieves Cleaner from Young Living

It smells like the combination of fresh citrus and Christmas in a bottle.   Under my cabinet is now one bottle that I can use to clean everything in my house.  Thieves Cleaner from Young Living is safe for my entire family, and I feel comfortable allowing my kids to use it to help me clean (win). From sanitizing my kitchen countertops, to cleaning the bathroom, making a sink of water to clean my floors, cleaning glass and dusting. I use Thieves Cleaner to clean every part of my home.

 Here are a few ways you can use Thieves Cleaner in your home

  • Put 2 capfuls in a large bowl of hot water and soak essential oil roller and dropper bottles for a good cleaning between uses
  • Use undiluted on stuck on adhesives as a natural way to remove goo
  • Dab onto stubborn laundry stains as a pre wash stain remover
  • Dilute a capful in water and soak extra-smelly sports equipment and activewear
  • Use to remove stains and cloudiness on plastic food storage containers
  • Keep solution fairly concentrated to remove hard water build-up and soap scum
  • Dilute and spray on plants suffering from pests and/or mold
  • Remove fingerprints and streaks on glass and stainless steel
  • Lightly mist on filter of vacuum to remove smells
