I have been a french maid all week! There's nothing like a guest to make you snap out of your lull and clean your place into perfection. I didn't have alot to do, but there were boxes of books to be put away and pictures to be hung; the last of the stuff from our move.

When it comes to cleaning, I like to go the natural route. I don't like harsh chemicals in my home, it's not good for the environment, Hank or us. For most cleaning jobs I use my own all purpose cleaner. It's easy to make, and I can easily add essential oils, lemon or orange peels to make it smell pretty. Ready? Let' go!
All you need is:
- a squirt bottle
- 1 teaspoon Washing Soda (not baking soda)
- 2 cups of hot water
- a touch of free and clear liquid detergent
- essential oils or lemon/orange peels.
Simply mix all the ingredients together, give it a shake and clean your house top to bottom!
(I do however reccomend testing surfaces before going nuts).
It's easy to make a big batch of this and keep it under your sink and refill your squirt bottle as needed.
If you can't make your own or just want a little change, I also keep Mrs. Meyers in our house. It's the best out there, and they have super yummy smells like Basil. My favorite is the seasonal Iowa Pine scent; it smells like a forest!
