Funky Earthy Cleaner

Every now and then I do something new and funky. One year I learned how to make jewelry. Another year I learned how to make and can salsa. And then one year I learned how to make household cleaners instead of buying them in the stores. (I've yet to make soap because I'm paranoid about lye. But I LOVE homemade soap, so maybe one day I'll give it a try) Anyway Here's one of my favorite homemade cleaners.

Natural Antibacterial Spray

1 T. borax
1 C. hot water
1 C. distilled white vinegar
1/2 t. dishwashing soap
1/2t. orange essential oil
1/2t. rosemary essential oil
1/2t. lavendar essential oil

Dissolve borax in water...allow to cool to room temperature. Pour into spray bottle. Add remaining ingredients. Shake well.
