Green Clean

As I have been working on my health I have also been trying to green up the way we clean our home.  I don't want to breathe in those chemicals, get it on my skin, or have to watch out because of the dogs.  I have many friends who feel the same way for themselves, their children, and their pets.  So I have a wonderful recipe for toilet bowl cleaner.  Let's first look at the hazards of typical cleaners.  Here is the hazard information on The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: blue-green to green, clear, non-viscous liquid with wintergreen odor.
IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: POISON. DANGER. May be fatal if swallowed. Causes severe burns. Harmful if inhaled. Do not ingest or
breath vapors. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Do not mix with chlorine-type bleaches or
other household chemicals.
EYES: Causes severe eye burns. Do not get in eyes.
SKIN: Causes severe skin burns. Do not get on skin.
INGESTION: May be fatal if swallowed.
INHALATION: Harmful if inhaled. Avoid breathing vapors.
CHRONIC: There are no known chronic hazards.
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Ingestion, Eye Contact.

Scary huh!  And that is just one brand!  You can read the full information here.  So what's in my toilet bowl cleaner, well none of that!  It's only 3 ingredients that are non-toxic can be used around kids and pets with no worries.  There aren't any bad fumes and it works great.  So what do you need?
1 cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup Baking Soda

How to
Pour vinegar and YL Thieves Cleaner into your toilet bowl.  Then add in the baking soda.  It will fizz and bubble.  Close your toilet lid and wait about 20 min.  Then use a toilet brush to clean your toilet and flush.  Voila, it's clean and disinfected!  The Thieves cleaner provides germ killing along with a nice smell and the baking soda provides some scrub action to clean stains.  

The Thieves cleaner can be used for other things as well!  I use it as a counter top cleaner, glass cleaner, to really clean dishes with stuck on food, and as a wash booster... the list really can go on and on.  It's super concentrated which means savings for you!  If you are interested in ordering the cleaner go to use member #1310759.  You can order as a customer (you pay retail pricing) or if you want additional savings you can become a distributor (you do not have to sell anything) to get 24% off.  You can also order through me.  I put in a mass order the 15th of every month.  Have questions on the Thieves line? Young Living? or how to get chemicals out of your body and home? Feel free to contact me through e-mail or call me at 612-501-8940.
