With all the junk that is in cleaners and even the food we eat at the Rosevine Cottage, we like to be as careful as we can with chemicals. Which means we often make our own cleaning products so we can ensure dangerous chemicals aren’t in the everyday products we are using. One great way to make an organic all-purpose cleaner is with the use of Grapefruit Seed Extract.
Grapefruit Seed Extract has so many great uses, including fighting antibiotic-resistant infections, relieving athletes foot and nail fungus, treating digestive disturbances associated with eczema.
It also can be used in the laundry for killing bacteria, as a carpet cleaner to kill pathogenic organisms, in humidifiers to kill the growth of algae, in nebulizers to control respiratory infections, in hot tubs and pools to reduce the need for high levels of chlorine and can even be given to pets and farm animals. We’ve used it many times in our chicken waters when we notice a chicken or duck that looks like it may be catching something. See more information on Grapefruit Seed Extract by Dr. Axe
