Low-Toxic Cleaning Indulgence: Spray Bottle with Cleaning Recipes Silk Screened On It!

by Ms. S on May 6, 2011

Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic. Add a few drops to any homemade cleaning solution for extra powers (disinfecting and scent)!

A few years ago, I read that studies have shown that women who work inside the home have significantly higher cancer rates than those who don’t. Repeated exposure to cleaning products is one of the contributing factors. Since then, I’ve read about a long list of health concerns related to conventional cleaning products so my household went lower toxic. In other words, we make our own cleaning “detergent” from Castille soap, vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, lemon, and essential oils. Recently, two discoveries have improved my cleaning experiences.

Eco Clean Recipe Spray Bottle

I’ve been on a hunt for a nice-looking spray bottle since I want to leave bottles of vinegar near each toilet. I finally found one that I’m really excited about: Eco Clean Recipe Spray Bottle sold by Crate and Barrel. Not only is this spray bottle better looking than most, but it also has formulas for all-natural cleaning solutions silk screened onto the bottle!

The perfect spray bottle for homemade cleaning solutions! Sold at Crate and Barrel for $6.95.

Libman Freedom Spray Mop

When mopping floors, and especially for a quick wipe down, I find this so much easier than carrying a bucket or bottles of cleaning solutions with my mop. Not only does this mop contain a refillable spray bottle attached to it (and the spray nozzle is by the handle), but the “mop” uses a cleaning pad that is machine washable and scratch-free. This deep cleaning pad provides a greener clean while saving you money. I love it.

The Libman CO4000 Freedom Mop. Sold online at Amazon and offline at Kmart.

The Libman CO 4001 Freedom Mop Refill. Machine washable and effective.
