Brenda, who you all know and love already, has spontaneously converted to all natural household products. The first I knew this had happened was when I came downstairs she told me to watch out – the floor was a little slippery from the olive oil. Olive oil and vinegar, it turns out, is an all natural thing you can use on hardwood floors.
And that was only the beginning. Lots of household cleaners have been replaced with home-made concoctions and alternative products like the old 18-in-1 Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps. I’ve used it before too, but it’s an example of one of the things she picked up shopping.
I asked her where her motivation was coming from and she said it was when she was reading about her memory. She’s more scatterbrained than ever recently and she came across a lot of things online about environmental chemicals and health. Which is great. It’s interesting living in a home with someone who uses olive oil on the floor.
