Using all natural materials in the yard and around the home is a great idea. All natural materials are safer for your family as well. I recently discovered tha you can usev that as your pets. The next time you walk around the corner into the kitchen and realize your child or pet has discovered the cleaning bottle on the counter and managed to get it down you won't have to panic.
There are many ways to make all natural cleaning supplies right in your own home. My new favorite is 1 cup boiling white vinegar mixed with 1 cup dish soap. Dump it in a spray bottle and use it to clean counters, stove, floors bathroom, and much more.
If you are trying to get rid of the weeds in your yard mix 4 cups vinegar, 1/4 cup salt and 2 tsp. soap.
If you have a lot of weeds you can mix 1 gallon vinegar, 1 cup salt, and 1/4 cup soap.
