As you know I love cooking,as cooking yourself is just the healthiest thing you can do! But that means I am using my oven a lot so that it becomes dirty. But I don't worry, as I have the perfect thing to help me clean my oven faster and easier!

This is my oven cleaning tip: oven cleaning with lemon! Take a bowl that is heat resistant and fill it with water. Then take a lemon or a lime, cut it in half and squeeze the juice so it mixes with the water. Put the lemon or lime also in the bowl. Put this in the oven and turn it on until the water starts to boil. Then, turn off the oven and let it cool off with the door closed. This little trick will not only make it much easier to clean your oven, as the bowl will attract the dirt and grease from the oven, but it also smells delicious.

p.s. a lemon is also great to clean the top of the stove with. it is anti-grease!

Love, Lonneke


Easy Clean with soap nuts

Did you know you can wash your laundry with soap nuts?

My introduction to soap nuts

WOW. Now I really know nature has it all. I'd never heard of these clean as a whistle little munchkins until I attended a soapmaking class. The information shared was AMAZING. Afterwards, people lined up for ages to purchase soap setting boxes, natural ingredients to make soap with...AND the best thing ever! SOAPNUTS. They look delicious don't they, & yet they are, SOAP?? Yes. Soap, in a nutshell! I'm still wowed out that these grow on trees (actually they are soap berries or Sapindus mukorossi) Anyway... All you do is boil 6 of them up in half a liter of water for 20 minutes & you have your very own, liquid soap. Strain before filling a pump 'foaming' bottle & keep near the kitchen sink, bathroom vanity or laundry to wash your hands without chemicals!


Isn't that simply 100% genius from mother earth? I think I'll add a little essential oil to mine...& apparently, you need to use it up within two weeks. That's because there's no nasties!!!! No evil preservatives. MMMM I like this soap.

Here is a little video for you to get an idea what you can do with soap nuts:
