Do it yourself cleaning supplies have been promoted as a way to save money in a recent Choice magazine article. My main interest in DIY cleaning products is to keep the small environment of the inside of the caravan as clean air and chemical free as possible. I am a clean air freak. I love to have as much flow-through air as possible into our van, easy with plenty of windows and two air vents in the ceiling and a ceiling fan. That was one way I never budget...on getting all those extra options installed into a new caravan, they add to your lifestyle enjoyment. I love the big opening skylight window directly over the bed.
When you do have to close a few vents and windows, it's nice to know there are few added chemicals in the air.
I do not cook inside the van other than by microwave. All our gas cooking is done out of doors.
I will not use harmful chemical based cleaners in the caravan...it is our bedroom. Who needs pollution in their bedroom?
Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda (or 2 teaspoons borax) into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water.
Add 10 drops tea tree, lavender, or lemon essential oil (for their disinfectant properties)
Clean your oil painting brushes with canola oil or something safe.
Avoid using harmful chemicals without adequate protection.

"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
