My focus this month, is on how to GREEN UP YOUR LIFE, using doTERRA essential oils and products!
Today I want to share how we have greened up our DISHWASHER recently, by making our own dishwashing powder and liquid.
There is a safe, natural alternative to everything you are currently using!
I want to help you live better, choose better and feel better with doTERRA, you NEVER oil alone!
Dishwasher recipe number 1, is in powder form:
It uses Borax, Baking Powder, Salt and Essential Oils. You can use Citric Acid if you need more help with hard water.
NOTE: Fill the entire rinse compartment with white vinegar!!!
Curious about the safety of Borax? Check out this article:
I'll tell what I do know, it's a BETTER CHOICE than what is sold in the stores! Yikes!
Our dishes came out sparkling clean! Batch two came out a tiny bit gritty so I am doing less powder and adding a teaspoon of our On Guard concentrate to it.
People with hard water will need to play with ratios too. You can also try recipe 2 instead, coming up.
Let me introduce you to the, oh so amazing, doTERRA Concentrated Cleaner, which I do my WHOLE HOUSE with.
Seriously, toilet, dishes, shower, floor, windows, mirrors, all of it. Safe and natural, On Guard oil in a soap base!
This powerful essential oil blend is combined with plant-based derivatives that provide a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odors, so it is safe for loved ones as well as the environment. The multi-purpose capabilities of doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate make it perfect to expertly clean hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, or any room, leaving behind a clean and invigorating scent.
ONE bottle can make 16 bottles of cleaner. Pennies on the dollar!!!
Green cleaning saves you some GREEN! And better yet, you won't choke and cough as you clean your bathroom!!!!
Dishwasher Recipe 2:
1. 1Tablespoon of baking soda + 1/2 teaspoon On Guard Cleaner Concentrate in the detergent compartment.
2. Fill the jet dry compartment with white vinegar.
You'll have sparkling clean dishes in a safe, natural way.
I have so many amazing, shocking and helpful things planned for you all of May on our Green Up Your Life Class page. Won't you please come join us?
