The staff of Natural Home & Garden is here at the Mother Earth News Fair sharing some great nontoxic cleaner recipes. This natural All-Purpose Cleaner and Disinfectant is just as effective as popular antibacterial cleansers and perfect for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

2 cups hot water
¼ cup white vinegar
½ teaspoon washing soda (similar to, but more
caustic than, baking soda)
15 drops tea tree essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a reusable spray bottle and shake well. To use, spray on surfaces, especially cutting boards, countertops and toilets. Wipe with a dry cloth.
