Letter from the Editor: Blooms

By Leslie Moore

There are a lot of people writing about the chemicals we use every day and how they may be affecting us. Consequently, like many of my friends and family, I’m trying to reduce my exposure. I have five dogs, so I clean a lot (constantly), and I decided cleaning products would be a good place to start. I found a couple of recipes for a citrus cleaner on my new favorite social media site, Pinterest, and made them up. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I never thought I could replace my bleach and pine cleaner with vinegar, orange peels and baking soda, but I haven’t bought any commercial cleaners since that first bottle. Next, I decided to try making laundry detergent, and again, I hit the eco-friendly cleaner jackpot – clean clothes with no harsh chemicals. I didn’t do quite as well with the dish detergent recipe, but I haven’t given up. On top of being “green,” my homemade cleaners are very inexpensive to make – definitely a plus. I’ve gotten fancier since that first bottle, and now I add lemon or orange essential oil to accent the cleaning power and to add more of that “clean” scent. My spray bottles now have pretty labels, too – just because I like them.

Sasee is on Pinterest now, please come “follow” us! And, if you’re on Facebook, you can now find an e-book version of Sasee there each month. Please take a look at our “virtual” offerings and let us know what you think!

Happy Spring!

Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are the sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
