darling octopus on tv

January 7, 2012

Tune in to Virginia This Morning on CBS6 this Monday, January 9th and you will see me on tv! I will be appearing to show you, and all of VA, how to make your own, all natural household cleaners. I will be demonstrating how to make an all purpose cleaner and a glass cleaner.

I started using this all purpose cleaner recipe when Jasper was born, almost four years ago. It is really great for counter tops, dirty doggy foot prints and sticky juice spills. It is made from all natural ingredients so you don’t need to worry about using it around your kids. And it contains tea tree oil, which contains antibacterial and antifungal properties so you feel like things are really getting clean.

I will post the recipes here after my tv debut! I also made some lovely labels that you should download and print out for your cleaner bottles.

If you missed me on Virginia This Morning, you can watch a video here. Thanks so much to everyone at CBS6! It was a really fun experience!

And here are the recipes:


• 3/4 cup white vinegar
• 1 cup hydrogen peroxide
• 1 1/2 teaspoons castile soap (such as Dr Bronner’s)
• 30 drops tea tree oil
• 30 drops essential oil (use any scent you like)

Place all ingredients in a 32 oz spray bottle using a funnel or a measuring cup with a spout. Add water until the bottle’s full. Shake to mix and get to cleaning.


• 1 cup rubbing alcohol
• 1 cup water
• 1 tablespoon white vinegar
• 20 drops essential oil

Place all ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake to mix.
