All Natural Cleaning and More

The Age of Organics and All Natural

I don’t know if it depends on where you live, who you hang with, age, upbringing, or all of the above but being health conscious is everywhere. I hate to say it but it even seems trendy (which is a good thing). I know back in the 80’s when I grew up, TV dinners were the bomb. Now it’s looked upon as processed crap. And bleach! How else do you get your whites white?!

Fast forward to now, everywhere you look the marketing is all-natural, organic, green, whole grain etc..I’m not anywhere near being the perfect all-natural, tree-hugging, garden growing, non processed, only organic individual. BUT, I try a little more each week to position myself and my family towards that. Small changes over time make big differences RIGHT? I think so.

As far as food is concerned it takes a lot of awareness in the States, because pretty much everything in the supermarket has a ton of hidden ingredients (cough, chemicals) to preserve the freshness. However, I’m not writing about food today. I wanted to share some articles about all natural cleaners, something I have been doing for the past year and a half and have been happy with the results.

Here’s a list of ingredients to make all natural cleaners:

• Lemons

• Baking Soda

• Vinegar

• Spray bottles

• Hydrogen peroxide

Now here’s a list of some useful articles to achieve these all natural cleaners PLUS many other uses! You can these print these and post on the fridge so you don’t forget! I’ve done it myself.

Happy healthy cleaning!

Running AGAIN

I started running (again) a couple of weeks ago, and boy it’s taking a toll on my calves. I don’t know why, but this time it seems to be harder on my legs. I only took a break over the winter so, in my head, it hasn’t been that long.

Anyway in my search for exercise routines, I found this neat little guide for runners.

I think it will be a help to me and hopefully you too!
