Grout Cleaner

As I’ve traveled between LA and Cleveland over the past few months, I’ve noticed that the grout on my bathroom floor is getting dirty. I made this super easy grout cleaner to bring back its original color.

Everyone knows how much I love to clean and I really try to clean with natural ingredients in my home. I decided to make a batch of natural wipes for quick cleaning on my countertops and bathrooms. I recently did the #unleashclean event (click here https://www.facebook.com/VIVATowels/?fref=ts to see a video from the day) with Viva brand and the Boys and Girls club of Greater Ventura and was given some Viva Vantage towels. I thought they would work great for this DIY because they work like a cloth but are incredibly resilient and durable for tough grime. Here's how I made them. I roll of paper towel I sealable jar ¾ cup of vinegar ¼ cup of water ¼ cup of rubbing alcohol 1 tbsp dish soap 15-20 drops of essential oil ( I used 10 drops of lemon and 10 drops of lavender) Start by cutting a high quality, extremely durable paper towel in half (I used Viva Vantage towels). Next, combine the vinegar, water, dish soap, rubbing alcohol and essential oils together. Mix well. Place the cut paper towel into the sealable jar and pour the liquid ingredients all over the paper towels. Once the towels are saturated, remove the center cardboard piece and pull the last towel for easy access to the towels. Use these as you would other cleaning wipes to keep your home fresh and clean.

Conditioning Wooden Cutting Boards

Keeping your wooden cutting boards oiled is really important. I try to do this with all my boards once a month. I do a good lemon salt scrub on the board and once it is clean I use unrefined coconut oil and run the oil into the board. It keeps your boards in good shape […]
