Tipsy Tuesday!

While mopping just a few minutes ago I thought it would be fun to do a link up called Tipsy Tuesday with the idea of sharing simple everyday tips with each other.

So, here's the deal, growing up I knew my grandmother was a pro at cleaning. I also knew she didn't use your typical mopping solutions. So I asked her recently what her secret is. She said, two tablespoons white vinegar to one gallon of hot water. That's it! Easy and CHEAP!

My uncle recently handed over his candle making business to my husband, which means we have tons of scents and essential oils on our hands. I thought I would throw my own twist into Grandma's secret solution. Last time I mopped I added a few drops of the honeysuckle scent. Boy did it smell heavenly in here! Today I added the juice of one lemon. It didn't smell as strong as I had hoped but I know lemons have cleaning power! Here is an article that has 6 reasons you should use lemon juice to clean your house. If you don't know about natural cleaning solutions you can make at home do some research about it on google. You'll find baking soda, white vinegar, and lemon juice as some of the most popular ingredients.

Do you have a tip to share with us? Make a post about it and add your link to the form below. I'm hoping to make this a regular Tuesday thing so look for the link-up next week as well. :)



  1. In the past I've definitely done posts on all natural cleaners so YAY FOR THIS! I use hot water most of the time with white vinegar too- I've not added essential oils but I have some from making my own laundry soap! Can I just say how JEALOUS I am that you have the selection of all the oils! :) I may try to find re-post an article and link up next Tuesday!

  2. Heidi, it would be awesome if you link up next Tuesday. Can't wait!
