My Next To Nature chemical free all purpose cleaner is uniquely my own recipe. After trying several combinations of ingredients, I created a cleaning product that works just as effectively, if not better than the harsh chemicals used in most cleaning products today. My all purpose cleaner contains only 6 pure ingredients.
A plant which actually looks like grass, with an aroma like lemon only milder and sweeter. Lemongrass has properties which make it antiviral, antibacterial and anti fungal. It cuts grease and grime and it will even clean gum off of carpets or permanent marker on hard surfaces
Made from 100% plants oils, typically coconut or olive oil, Castile soap is completely biodegradable and earth friendly. It contains no animal fat and no chemicals. Castile soap has been around since the early 1800’s when it started to be used in public restrooms in Germany. It became an important part of improving public sanitation and personal hygiene in Europe.
Washing Soda, also known as sodium carbonate, soda ash or soda crystals, is in the same category as baking soda. It’s basically just baking soda put through a heating process. You can actually make your own just by placing the baking soda in the oven. The texture is rough not as soft as regular baking soda which makes it great for scrubbing so you don’t have to use those chemicals like comet.
Distilled White Vinegar
Distilled white vinegar is made from alcohol that has been distilled and placed through a fermenting process. It is ideal for cleaning because it has a higher percentage of acidic content. It is a perfect natural solution for cleaning dirt and odors. It also contains disinfectant properties.
Ionic silver is highly concentrated particles of silver ions suspended in distilled water. This in done through an ionic process. I actually have my own silver generator that I use to make my silver with to put in my products. Silver has been used throughout history dating back to ancient Greek and Roman empires for medical purposes as a germicide, antibiotic and sterilization. Silver is still used today in modern medicine for wound dressing, eye drops, water purification in dental offices to prevent mold and mildew.
Distilled water is water that has many of its impurities removed through a distillation process. That process is water heated up and then the steam from the water is used and dripped into a container and that’s the distilled water. This water is great for making handmade cleaners because it has no chemicals that tap water has and will not leave any mineral build up on surfaces.
