Here at the Anarchy Estate we are making the slow progression to the world of the more-green. Honestly the kids have taken me there kicking and screaming but I am getting better. On my very own I have switched over to using Borax powder for most of my routine bathroom cleaning with great success. ( Like most things this was prompted by the fact that I was getting freaky reactions when typical cleaners touched my skin so thus the trip into the world of natural cleaners since this was to clean the bathtub and that was a rash I don't want to talk about!) I have even switched to natural sponges as part of the process, I could wish they were prettier and a bit less "organic" looking but they seem to do the job. The difficult part was how to keep the Borax available and easy to get to so that cleaning was fast and easy.
The answer came in the form of this glass canister from Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill Collection from Target ** With the wide mouth and large size it was just right for holding the whole box of Borax along with the sponge. To the borax I add a couple of drops of essential rose oil since I am all about the smell-good.
Of course that should have been well enough but I am a total crafty/pretty stuff freak so had to dress up the canister and of course I found the perfect image at the Graphics fairy. I tweaked it a bit to fit my purpose, printed it out on a sheet of sticker paper then cut it out and put in on the jar like an old apotheocary label. After all, there is no reason eco-clean can't be pretty too! So taking care both physically and visually, a good self care project for a simple Sunday.
Even better!... I have an extra label to give away! So if you would like to have it, leave a comment and at the end of the week I will pick a name and send it to the winner.. it's that simple!
** I really like these containers but the lid and the container are glass on glass so the sound is harsh when put on the lid. To help with that I have found a small bit of rubber cement put on the rim ( letting it dry first of course) of the lid makes a nice buffer without interfering with the jar in anyway.
Any natural cleaning products that you would really like to suggest??
