How to Make your own non-toxic disinfecting cleaner
In this video, Jennifer Taggart Of Healthy Child Healthy World shows us how to make a non-toxic disinfecting cleaner. You can use this cleaner for almost any surface in your home. What you'll need is a re-purpose spray bottle, some castile soap, some tea tree oil, and water. For the water, it's preferable to use distilled water, but you don't have to. The distilled water ensures there's no bacteria or anything in it. First, if you're re-using a spray bottle make sure it's clean. Add 2 cups of water to your spray bottle. Next, add 1 and 1/2 to 3 teaspoons of castile soap (though you may find 3 teaspoons makes it too soapy, so put in less - these measurements don't have to be exact). Castile soap is a vegetable-based soap. Then, add 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil (you can add less if the smell is too strong for you). Tea tree oil has anti-fungal properties and is great for killing mold. It also has a little bit of a pine scent. Finally, swirl this all around in your bottle. And that's how to make a non-toxic disinfecting cleaner. It can be used to clean surfaces in your bathroom, kitchen, etc. Just spray it on a surface and clean with a damp rag.
