KWW: Green Cleaning

Well it's another fabulous week of Kitchin Witchin, part of teh KWW Blog Party. I know...I know, I haven't done one of these in a while. I'm slowly getting back to way things need to be, you know more than just book reviews & challenge information.

Here are some awesome ways to use herbs in the kitchen these are all from The Complete Book of Herbs by Leslie Bremness.
To make potpourri simply combine the ingredients in a bowl, you can add essential oils that match the ingredients, you should set it aside for a cool dark place for six weeks for it to "cure". Place in clear glass bowls or bowls that match the theme of the potpourri.
Kitchen Potpourri: to help cleanse the scents of cooking.

  • 4 pts lemon verbena 
  • 2 pts mints
  • 2 pts bay leaves
  • 1 pt tansy leaves & flowers
  • 1 pt lovage
  • a few crushed cloves & orris root
This actually smells amazing, mine looks a little worse for wear, so I didn't take a pic of mine. 

Drain Cleaner: I used this just two days ago, the drain no longer smells and it drains beautifully.
  • 1/2 cup Scented baking soda (I made mine with lemon essential oil)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups boiling water or hottest water
Pour the baking soda & salt down the drain leave for five minutes.  Add the vinegar and cover with a wet rag, let it sit for about 10 minutes.  Pour the boiling water down the drain. Your drain should smell amazing and work like a charm.

Well that's my list of cleaning supplies for the week. Have fun my loves and I will see you again next week, why yes, I will be posting as regular as possible again.  
Thanks for coming back and reading & share your KWW links in the posts.
