天然家居清潔系列 Homemade Natural Cleaning Supplies

左邊綠色的是空氣清新噴霧,中間藍色的是多用途清潔劑,右邊是洗碗用的。

由於家中有個愛清潔及天然的Honey K,所以如果用上了漂白劑之類的東西,他在家中門前也聞到,於是我決定以後都不買有大量化學物料的清潔用品,這樣打掃起來也不覺得家中有大量的化學物留連於傢俱上,減少對化學物過敏的機會。以下是三種天然清潔用品的做法。


天然洗潔精 Natural Dish Soap/Liquid 


這個瓶子是在台北的大創買的,才台幣39元。我買了兩個回美國。

之前第一次自己做的洗潔精,我覺得不夠濃,比起Seventh Generation的清潔力較弱,更發現Honey K還是會用Seventh Generation洗碗,所以我改良了一些材料上的比例以加強清潔力,這次比上次更能成功去油污。

材料﹕
純橄欖香皂(Pure Castile Soap) 2杯半(我用了本身帶有薄荷味的那一種)
白醋1/2杯
過濾過的清水1杯
餾斗1個
瓶子1個
*茶樹油 10至20滴

Ingredients:
Pure Castile Soap 2 cups
White distilled vinegar 1/2 cup
Distilled water 1 cup
Funnel 1
Bottle 1
Optional: Tea tree oil 10-20 drops



*家中沒有或不喜歡味道可以不用。

做法﹕
把所有材料混合到一個約750毫升的瓶子中,純橄欖香皂和白醋混合後會出現一點小結塊,這是正常的,搖晃瓶子後應該會消失。

Method:
Mix everything together with the use of a funnel and a bottle. I got mine in Taipei. If you see some white floating materials, it is normal due to the reaction between the vinegar and the castile soap. Simply shake the bottle to combine everything and it should do the trick.

天然空氣清新劑 Natural Air Freshener 

我這瓶比較小,加入7滴精油已經蠻香的了。

自己做的空氣清新劑香氣比較清淡,不但沒有化學和酒精成份,而且味道一般都不會刺鼻。這種空氣清新劑除了可噴在家中的每個房間,也可以在做瑜伽或睡覺前噴到瑜伽墊或床上和棉被枕頭間,很有讓人放鬆的效果。

材料﹕
過濾過的清水
噴壺1個 (我在美國的Container store買的)
適量的薰衣草、茶樹精油
這是我用的精油,買了放在家中可以用很久很久,除了清潔用品外,還可以在沐浴時加入水中。

Ingredients:
Distilled water (depending on the size of your spray bottle)
Spray bottle 1 (I bought it from the container store and I believed it was US$1)
Lavender and/or tea tree essential oil

做法﹕
把適量的清水加入噴壺中至差不多滿,然後加入十至二十的精油,把瓶子搖晃一下,如果噴壺比較大,可以再按個人喜好加入精油至心宜的味道。用到一半的時候,可以再加水,搖晃後繼續用。茶樹油有殺菌的作用,而薰衣草的香氣可讓人放鬆,有助減輕頭痛。

Method:
Pour an adequate amount of water into a spray bottle until it is almost full. Then add in 10 to 20 drops of essential oil of your choice. If you have a bigger spray bottle, you might want to adjust the amount of essential oil. Some people are also more sensitive to smell and thus, these people might want to reduce the amount of essential oil put into the spray bottle. I use tea tree oil and lavender oil because I have them handy at home. Tea tree oil can kill bacteria and lavender oil can induce relaxation and help to relieve headaches. Apart from spraying in different home areas, you can also spray on your yoga mat and on your pillow for a good night sleep. When you are done with half a bottle, you can simply add water to it, until the smell is not strong enough for you.

天然多用途清潔劑 Natural All-purpose Cleaner


這個噴壺(港幣約$30元)由香港的景德行瓷業有限公司提供,十分好噴。
我平日洗廁所和廚房都是用這個。醋的味道會揮發,不用擔心房間會長期有酸味。如果怕那醋味,可以用以上的空氣清新劑改善房間的味道。

I use this to clean the living room, bathroom and kitchen on a regular basis. The smell of vinegar will not linger, so no worries. Sometimes, if I find the vinegar smell too strong, I will then use the air refreshener (recipe as above) to cover the vinegar smell. It works and Honey K loves it.

材料﹕
白醋 1/2杯
噴壺1 個
梳打粉 1 湯匙
過濾過的清水2杯
檸檬汁2湯匙
*茶樹油 5滴
純橄欖香皂 2湯匙
*家中沒有或不喜歡味道可以不用。

Ingredients:
White distilled vinegar 1/2 cup
Spray bottle 1
Baking soda 1tbsp
Distilled water 2 cups
Lemon juice 2 tbsp
Tea tree oil 5 drops (Optional)
Pure Castile Soap 2 tbsp

做法﹕
1. 首先,一定一定要把梳打粉和水混合。
2. 然後,把其他的材料加入噴壺搖晃後即可使用。
3. 如果你的噴壺較大,請按比例加入更多的材料。

Method:
1. First, it is very important that you mix the water with the baking soda together.
2. Pour  the remaining ingredients into a spray bottle. Shake well and it is ready to use.
3. If you have a bigger bottle, add more ingredients to make it full.

收藏方法 Storage tips﹕
這些都可以勾在储物櫃中。You can hang the spray bottles in a cleaning closet.
