Homemade & natural multipurpose cleaner

I hope you´ve had a very happy weekend! I"ve been really immersed in household chores and I remembered that I had to share the recipe of my all-natural & homemade "Mr Clean", my very best multipurpose cleaner that smells so delicious and doesn´t contain any toxic ingredient... What"s more, if you drink it, you would enjoy its health benefits (but don´t drink it!) 
So I was looking forward to Monday to share this post!


Espero que hayáis pasado un muy feliz fin de semana! yo he estado de limpieza (como no!) y sumergida en el mundo de los quehaceres domésticos me acordé que tenía que compartir la receta de mi "don limpio" casero, mi particular limpiador que huele tan delicioso y no contiene ningún tipo de producto tóxico... es más, si os lo bebieras, os beneficiarían sus propiedades (pero no os lo bebáis!!). 
Por lo tanto estaba deseando que llegara el lunes para compartir este post!
Sé que el viernes pasado por mucho que os hablase de los beneficios de la mascarilla de arcilla y vinagre, su apariencia, vamos, no entraba por los ojos jejee, pero es que es tan buena!! con esta receta de mi limpiador casero no sucede eso, porque es buenísimo y además luce bien! Es más, mientras lo tengo macerando, siempre lo dejo en los estantes visibles de la cocina, porque verlo da gusto!!!
Hace unos meses os comenté que para limpiar utilizo "vinagre de naranja" (que no es más que un vinagre de manzana macerado por 2 semanas con pieles de naranja), nada quita la grasa y da brillo como este producto. Diluido en agua, quita las manchas de cal de la bañera, los grifos, la mampara, deja los cristales limpios y brillantes por mucho tiempo, y los suelos con un brillo y un aspecto increíble, todo pasa la prueba del algodón, os lo aseguro!
Llevo años utilizando este limpiador, pero hace un tiempo fui un poco más allá y para cambiar el perfume, empecé a agregar otras plantas, frutas, hierbas y especias al vinagre y el resultado es simplemente maravilloso!! Si es que parece perfume!! nada queda del penetrante olor del vinagre!
He hecho varias combinaciones, y os la recomiendo todas, la mezcla de aromas es sencillamente increíble! 

Vinagre de limón, romero y vainilla




Vinagre de pomelo, menta y anís








Vinagre de naranja, clavos de olor y canela en rama



Preparación:

La preparación es muy sencilla, basta con recolectar pieles de naranja, limón, pomelo, lima, lo que prefiráis (yo las voy guardando en un recipiente hermético o en una bolsa con cierre zip en la nevera hasta que tengo suficiente cantidad). Combinamos con algunas hierbas frescas (tomillo, romero, hierbabuena, menta...), y especias (clavos, unas vainas de vainilla, unas ramas de canela, anís de estrella...)  y rellenamos botes de cristal con estas combinaciones y vinagre de manzana (o vinagre blanco) hasta cubrir. Dejamos macerar mínimo 2 semanas y colamos, reservando el líquido, que diluiremos en un poco de agua (para que no esté tan concentrado). Yo prefiero utilizarlo en un vaporizador, para facilitarme la tarea.


Os animo a que lo probéis, nada quita la grasa y limpia en profundidad como el vinagre, y el toque cítrico potencia aún más su acción desengrasante, a la vez que perfuma la casa durante todo el día.
Es sencillísimo, os ahorraréis un dinero en productos de limpieza y estaréis utilizando un producto que no es para nada tóxico, y que como os he dicho, os lo podríais beber y estoy segura que estaría buenísimo!! ;)


Althought last Friday I talked so much about the benefits of clay and vinegar facial mask, its appearance wasn´t attractive at all and wasn´t really eye-catching :D  but it has so many benefits!!  With this recipe of my homemade cleaner, however, it doesn´t happen the same, because it"s great and it looks so good! Moreover, while I keep it macerating, I always leave it on visible shelves in the kitchen, because I find it really decorative!!!
Some months ago I told you that I always use a homemade  "orange vinegar"  cleaner (which is nothing else than  apple cider vinegar infused for 2 weeks with orange peels), nothing removes grease and shines like this product. Diluted in water, removes limescale from bathtubs, faucets, shower doors, leaves clean and sparkling windows for a long time, and really shine and clean floors, everything shines and smells deliciously!!
I´ve been using this cleaner for years, but a while ago I went a little further and in order to change the perfume, I started adding other plants, fruits, herbs and spices to the vinegar and the result is just wonderful!! If it seems like fragrance!! nothing remains from the penetrating smell of vinegar!
I"ve done different combinations, and I recommend you try  all of them, the aroma mixture is simply amazing!Lemon, rosemary & vanilla vinegar:



Grapefruit, mint & anise vinegar:



Orange, cloves & cinnamon sticks vinegar:




Preparation:
The preparation is really easy, just collect orange, lemon, grapefruit or lime peels (I"m keep them in an airtight container or zip lock bag in the fridge until I have enough). Combine with some fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, mint, peppermint ...) and spices (cloves, vanilla pods, some cinnamon sticks, star anise ...) and fill mason jars with these combinations and white or apple cider vinegar. Let infuse at least 2 weeks and then strain, reserving the liquid. Use it diluted in some water (so that it is not as concentrated). I prefer to use it in a vaporizer, to ease me the job.


I encourage you to try it out, nothing removes grease and cleans  so good as vinegar, and this citrus twist  enhances its degreasing action, while perfumes the house for the whole day.
It"s so easy, you will save lot of money on cleaning products and you will be using a product that it isn´t toxic  at all, in fact, you could even drink it and I´m sure it would be delicious!! ;)

Painted dining room cabinet

Blue and beige dining room cabinet Over a year ago, before I was even considering the idea of creating my own blog, I was in a hurry to finish painting this dining room cabinet in a flat that was going to be rent out.
