And neither of these will be harmful to toddlers or pets? My DIL is looking for something to clean her hardwood floors that won't hurt my grandson or my grandpup. As she says, "I have floor lickers so it has to be non-toxic!"

This is my favorite all-purpose household cleaner. It's from Recipegoldmine.com and it appears under a couple of different titles. I think it's Miracle Cleaning spray, but you can toss the kitchen and bathroom cleaner and use this everywhere!

You'll need:
  • a sturdy spray bottle
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Borax
  • 1/4 cup liquid dish soap
  • 32 ounces hot water
  • 20 drops lavender essential oil (or other if desired)*
Mix vinegar and Borax together. Add this and warm (not hot) water to bottle and shake until mixed well. Add liquid soap and lavender essential oil. Smells great! Spray and wipe with a paper towel or, keep a container of inexpensive, non-scented baby wipes in the bathroom for "disposable" cleaning wipes used with this miracle spray. A fraction of the cost of other cleaning wipes. Lavender is antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial naturally. My favorite all-time cleaner!
