... Rascal and I had great fun cleaning the shower today!
Now this is not really a job that I would normally share with a toddler as the cleaning products can be harsh and not particularly toddler friendly. However, I was more than happy to let Rascal squirt the cleaner onto the glass today as it was a mixture of water, vinegar and a few drops of liquid detergent. Recipe here. Rascal loved her job and each squirt was accompanied by a peel of giggles.
To be honest, I was a wee bit sceptical as to how clean the shower would become using this homemade potion, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did not have to scrub particularly hard and the large amount of limescaleΩ all disappeared no problem.
Spurred on by my success, I went on use Wendyl Nissen's recipe to make Spray Cleaner (recipe on the same page as the window cleaner). All I can say is WOW! It is heaps better than the shop bought cleaners. Our kitchen counter is sparkling and has no smears. Even hubby has been impressed and when he used the cleaner himself, immediately announced that we shouldn't buy any more spray cleaners.
These two cleaners were made using products that we had in the house. I am really looking forward to buying a few more ingredients and trying some other homemade cleaners (lemon dusters and natural antibacterial spray are a couple that catch my eye). I am also really excited about the prospect of trying some of her baby product recipes... I'll keep you posted how I get on...
