Squeaky Clean.

I’ve gotten a couple of emails asking me how I made my homemade cleaning supplies.

I’m going to be completely honest: I stole recipes from my awesome friend Jen.
{Although, in all fairness, she shared it on her blog, so I think it’s okay.}

I’m actually going to take them from her blog & share with you here.
{Of course, with my commentary & stories. You don’t get far without those.}

But first, let me tell you the story of these cleaning supplies.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought all the ingredients to make them, but {in keeping with my procrastinating nature} hadn’t done it until, well, 10:30 p.m. on Monday night.
I went to brush my teeth, & that was it. I couldn’t look at that shower again. It had to be cleaned.
I refuse to use the chemical cleaners & bleach to scrub our bathroom, knowing the toxicity there.
John willingly cleaned the shower for me, about 6 weeks ago. He’s promised to do it again.
I don’t even want to smell that stuff, though, & how often is he home that I’m not?

See, John & I wear flip flops. Like, a LOT.
Like, our big toes are about an inch away from our other toes because we kinda live in flip-flops.
{Which, I must say, is legitimate since we live in this hellish weather.} This is great.
Except that means the bottom of our feet get dirty & that dirt cakes up on the floor of the shower.
& The shower is my obsessive must-stay-clean-or-I-will-have-a-mental-breakdown compulsion.
{Also, bed sheets. Bed sheets must stay clean, which means our feet must be clean before bed.}
You can see my problem.
