With two (soon to be three!) littles running around, disinfectant spray is a major staple in our house. But I really don’t want my kiddos exposed to the toxic chemicals that are usually found in commercial disinfectants. So I make this super easy, all natural disinfectant spray using just three ingredients: vinegar, lemons, and rosemary.

Most conventional hardwood furniture polishes are loaded with dangerous chemicals, which pollute the indoor air and the environment. This calls for preparing your own furniture polish, which doesn’t include any harmful ingredients. Check out one effective, natural and frugal furniture polish recipe.
Natural mommas sometimes get a bad rap. I don’t know many natural mommas in my personal life, and I often see/hear how those who don’t identify with that label talk about us. They see us as self-righteous, over-the-top, and unbending. And I can see why they think that of us when I see some of the sanctimonious articles out there, berating mom’s who make choices that don’t match certain ideals.
But I’m here to tell you, not all natural mommas are like that. In fact, MOST natural mommas are not like that. We are regular people, who don’t believe we are perfect or better or experts. Just like any other mom who is trying to do her best for her kids – we are doing the same.

I used to use paper towels for cleaning, but quit that habit when I discovered microfiber cloths (like these, which work awesome). Still, I keep paper towels on hand because there are three instances when I will absolutely break my paper towel ban. [Read more…]
I am so excited to be guest blogging today over at Kristy’s Cottage. I’m sharing my recipes for all-natural wood floor cleaner and polish that I use for our wood floors.
When we moved into our home, I was in love with the wood floor in the dining room. But I must admit, I was a little scared that we would ruin them! I’ve always gotten the impression that wood floors are hard to care for. Truth is, wood floors are actually wonderfully durable and pretty easy to maintain.
I clean our wood floors in our dining room about once a week. Being in the dining room where a 1 year old and a 3 year old eat meals, the floors could probably stand to be cleaned more often than that! But hey, I’m a busy mom and I do my best. 🙂
