Glass Cleaner Ingredients

1. 2 cups of water (distilled or filtered is best so it does not leave residue)

2. 2 tablespoons vinegar

3. 10 drops essential oil of choice– lemon is good as it helps cut out the vinegar smell

Combine ingredients in a spray bottle (preferably glass) and use as needed to clean window.

Use a microfiber cloth to wipe windows clean with this recipe.

Note: if you have always used commercial window cleaner in the past, mix a couple drops of liquid castile soap or liquid dish soap in some of this mixture the first time you clean the windows to remove detergent residue.

Oven Cleaner

· Spray bottle with water

· Baking soda

1. Spray the entire interior of the oven with water, making sure it is evenly damp.

2. Pour about 1/4 inch layer of baking soda on the bottom of the oven. If you see any dry spots, mist it with the water bottle until it resembles a paste.

3. Walk away and leave the paste on for a few hours (with the oven off)

4. After a few hours, simply wipe up the paste with a cloth or an old towel. All the grime will come with it!

5. For really baked-on grime, this may take a couple applications, but it always works and it is 100% natural.

Note: It is important to make sure that any residue has been completely removed before using the oven as any remaining baking soda may smoke if left in contact with the heating element!
