1. I read about this in Craft magazine.
2. It comes from a company called The Purple Fig Cleaning Co. in Austin. The company not only will clean your house using all-natural cleaning agents, they hold parties (like Tupperware or BeautiControl or Pampered Chef) where they teach you how to clean and how to make your own all-natural cleaning agents.
3. The idea is that all-natural cleaning agents allow you to rely less on chemicals and big corporations to keep your house clean in a safe and natural and effective way.
4. That seems like a MITUSA concept.
5. Here are some cleaning product recipes, courtesy of Amanda May, owner of Purple Fig, by way of Craft Magazine:

All-Purpose Cleaner
1T borax
1t baking soda
2C warm water
Half to three-quarters tsp tea tree oil
Half to three-quarters tsp liquid castile soap
Mix borax, baking soda and water. Add tea tree oil and castile soap. Pour into spray bottle. Label. Squirt. Clean.

Glass Cleaner
Half cup vinegar
3 drops of peppermint essential oil
Add to spray bottle. Fill with purified (distilled?) water. Label. Spray. Clean. Look through clean glass. Admire.

Counter Spray
1T borax
2C warm water
Half to three-quarters tsp lavender essential oil
Half to three-quarters tsp liquid castile soap
Quarter tsp oil of oregano
Mix the borax and warm water. Add the other stuff. Pour into spray bottle. Label. Spray. Clean. Make dirty. Repeat.

Get to it. Feel free to practice at my house.
