Have extra herbs from the garden you don't know what to do with? Make all-natural homemade cleaners!

Thanks for the interesting tip. What about the method of crushing the leaves with lemon juice and diluting, to save on boiling [energy]? How does it work?

You can use that method, but it takes a while longer. You would need to dilute with warm water and seal in a container (mason jars work well) and let sit at room temperature for around 2 weeks.

Will gladly adopt any unwanted carnivorous plants or seeds!! :)

Many spray bottles clog up easily, so wouldn't it be a good idea to strain the water in case there's little pieces of plant?

Yes. Sorry forgot to add that. Thank you. :)

I always have extra parsley. Love it with lemon when I make a cleaner. :)
