Simplicity is such a simple word isn’t it? Sustainability is simplicity. Simply reconnect with those you love. Simply perform a kind deed for someone plus yourself today. Simply enjoy the great outdoors and the wonders that Mother Nature has to offer. Simply save money every single day by doing small actions. I’ll share one with you. My favorite cleaner is 409. I learned from an arboretist that I have a plant in my backyard called CA Bay Leaf. So I’ve made my own cleaning agent right from the backyard. I pluck off 8 leaves, brew it just like making a cup of tea. Pour into a water bottle, add 1/4 cup vinegar, and fill the rest up with water. This cleaner acts like a degreaser and makes my countertops sparkle. The smell reinvigorates me and it sure makes me happy to save some money and experiment with home made products I use daily. Try approaching complexity with simplicity.

My quick decision to purchase the cheapest product had gained me disastrous and unintended results. After reading the ingredients of the cleaning product I am not surprised they got a rash. The ingredients shown weren’t much more than a list of chemical compounds that left my head spinning. So, began my search for healthy alternatives. I found the solution with the Method Brand le scrub bathroom cleaner. Not only does it return the tub to its original bright white it also does not break my boys out in a rash. Even better, it smells of eucalyptus mint. The bottle lists the ingredients with a link. Not only was a full list of ingredients provided but it was all described in words that every mom can understand. Armed with this information, I am confident in continuing to use this product without the fear that anyone will be breaking out in an itchy irritating rash anytime soon.
