Why Should I Use a Natural Homemade Cleaning Solution?
The products we use to clean our home and office get absorbed through the tiny pores of our skin and then get taken up by the liver, which has the job of dealing with the toxins of those substances, active ingredients as well as fillers, colorings, preservatives and chemical scents.
Our liver already has almost 700 functions to perform daily. Do we really want to add more toxins to the mix. Chemical agents are not good for the body, the skin, the environment or the planet in general.
The Best Natural Homemade Granite Cleaning Solution
As a holistic, naturopathic doctor, I recommend using natural agents for cleaning products, skin products and medicinal remedies.
What you will need:
- 1/4 cup of alcohol – Rubbing or Vodka works fine
- A few drops of Castile liquid soap
- Warm water
- Your favorite essential oil -( I love grapefruit or lemongrass) can be used on granite surfaces.
These natural ingredients are non-toxic to your skin, your liver and the environment that so desperately needs our loving care.
Natural Cleaning Recipes for Other Surfaces
For other surface areas in the home or office, white vinegar diluted with alkaline water is sufficient, inexpensive and does a great job!
