# 1 Universal Cleaning Solution – Baking Soda and ACV – for ovens, dirty showers and sinks, mold, dishes and more. Pour ACV onto Baking soda and see the bubbling chemical reaction that occurs! Its like a science experiment, so please try it at home!
Toothpaste– Baking soda or salt- A few times a year you may add some hydrogen peroxide for whitening.
Deodorant– Lavender Oil and then Sprinkle some baking soda. The only natural deodorant that works!
Shampoo– Mix baking soda and water, ratio 1:1. Don’t believe me? Try it!
Conditioner– ACV and water, ratio 1:1, and it leaves your hair so soft and shiny! You may also condition with Honey using the same process.
Window cleaner– ACV with scrunched up newspaper
For oily dishes in the sink– Organic soap and baking soda, and if you want some ACV to ‘bleach’ unwanted germs
Laundry detergent– 1/4 cup baking soda, 3-5 tblsp ACV, 6 drops eucalyptus, and 3-5 tblsp organic soap
Oil pulling– 1 tblsp Coconut Oil- Takes toxins out of your body and mouth, and can heal anything from tooth aches to bad breathe
Facial and body moisturizer– Coconut Oil is my favorite, but you may use olive oil too.
Lice Removal– 1/8 cup Olive oil with rosemary, eucalyptus,teatree, and anything else! Rub in your hair and cover with plastic bag for at least an hour, and then use your lice comb. It also is a hair treatment at the same time! Then wash with shampoo and baking soda mixed together. You may condition with ACV. ANother way to remove lice would be to use hydrogen peroxide but it may bleach your hair.
To add to soup or drizzle on freshly baked sweet potato- Coconut Oil and salt (optional:lemon)
Best classic all-around dressing for any food- Olive Oil, lemon, and Salt
Liver/Kidney Detox– A mixture of ACV, Lemon, and Olive Oil
Carpet Cleaner– Add essential oils to a bag of Baking Soda and shake up, and sprinkle on carpet, and then vaccum
Cake riser– Just Baking Soda- i dont even use baking powder anymore.
First Aid Antiseptic- Lemon or honey, on the cut or scrape-you may even use tea tree oil (or hydrogen peroxide, if you like that type of thing)
