Mild yet effective household cleanser

Today im going to share my recipe for household cleanser.(think comet but without all the gross stuff)
What you will need.....
1) empty cheese shaker or large spice shaker (this makes use so much easier)
2) 1&1/3 cups borax
3) 2/3 cups baking soda
4) orange and or tea tree essential oils (optional)

you are going to be amazed how easy this is! Mix the baking soda and borax together, add 2-3 or so drops of each oil, mix it in well. Put it in the cheese shaker you have recycled. VOILA! clean your house! sprinkle on tough counter stains, stove tops, bathrooms...anything! This cleans the drop pans on my viking range like nobody's business! And this is safe for kids to use. no bleach no yucky stuff! and tea tree oil is a natural antimicrobial!
And you thought being green was expensive!  nah ... that's just what big companies want you to believe so you'll buy their "green" products but if you read the labels that stuff is far from the scope of natural! You can't get much more natural than this!
i wish i could make these posts longer but hey it is what it is simple so have fun clean your house :)
