Safe for the environment and safe for you and your family, this all in one, handy dandy home cleaning recipe will be used over and over again. It’s a great basic cleanser that can be made in advance and it tackles many jobs. The liquid Castile, baking soda, and vinegar are the workhorses and the tea tree extract and witch hazel are light antiseptics providing grease cutting and antibacterial properties without leaving a residue. If you like, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to create your “clean” smell. Source: Unknown
