Foods that Clean
I’ve been trying very hard to clean my home with natural products lately. Not only for the environment and my families health but also for my dogs. I noticed that quite often when my home gets professionally cleaned or the bug man comes to do his quarterly spraying that one of my dogs has a seizure. So I decided to eliminate those harsh chemicals that I’ve used to clean my home. I also cancelled the bug man about 8 months ago and no bugs and no more seizures. How about that?
Anyway, I was reading an old magazine a few weeks back and came across an article about The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing, a book my Michael DeJong. So I got on Amazon.com to read about it and found the information and customer reviews to be outstanding. What I found to be the most incredible was that all but one of the ingredients are food.
The Five Zen-Cleansing Ingredients used in this book of household cleaning recipes are:
The book starts off with a 15 page cleansing key from A-Z. It discusses each of the five ingredients and then gives recipes from cleaning cars, laundry, floors, walls, bloodstains, air freshners, kitchens, pet urine, window defrosters, weed removals and so much more. Of course, I went out and got that box of 20 Mule Team Borax that we use to have in my house as a kid. The rest of the ingredients I’ve already got on hand.
So far the recipes I’ve tried in the book really do the job. I was stunned at how well they actually cleaned and left the room smelling – fresh.
So stock up on those ingredients at Sam’s or Cosco now and don’t worry about them going bad. You’ll have plenty to use them for to clean your house and best of all save yourself quite a few dollars throughout the year.
I’m so amazed by this simple book that I just had to share it. Here’s a clip of Michael DeJong demonstrating some of his techniques.
If you happen to order this book, please let me know what you think.
Happy Food Cleaning!
