A Healthier Way to Live: Non-Toxic Home DIY's

 Non-toxic multi-purpose cleaner:

1/2 cup vinegar 
1/4 cup baking soda 
 2 liters of water spray bottle 

Mix all ingredients together and put it in a spray bottle. It is so easy and inexpensive to make!
*A funnel is a great way to get it into the spray bottle without spills.

 Non-toxic home air freshener:

1 part Vinegar 
 2 parts lemon juice (fresh or bottled) 
small container (I used an empty soy candle jar) 

Put ingredients into a container. Set out in areas around your home that can use a freshening up! This combo actually absorbs odors around the house! I love that it is non toxic if my kids or cat go near it and that it doesn't just mask smells. Plus it's so easy to make.
*You could substitute baking soda for vinegar if you'd prefer. 

Do you make your own cleaners or fresheners?

I love these types of posts (actually, I follow your blog daily). I use an alcohol/water spray in the place of Windex type of products. No streaking and it works on computer/tv screens, etc...I have 2 autistic sons at home so everything must be non-chemical. I also love your recipes which have helped with our gluten free diets.
Thank you for sharing.
