Doocratic Cleaning

Getting shit done with good old fashioned elbow grease.

Rationale

There may be many reasons that motivate one to perform cleaning, however the base purpose of cleaning is generally make the environment healthier and more sanitary.

By rotating the cleaning duties, members learn observe the various sorts of messes and dirty spots, learn how to clean them, and how to avoid making them in the first place.

Cleaning Agents and Health

Commercially available chemical-based cleaners contain neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. Such products are directly counterproductive to the goal of health improvement. They also have other consequential effects, supporting corporatism of multinational chemical companies that also poison us with GMOs and pharmaceuticals (DOW, Bayer, BASF, P&G), and must be transported using foreign oil and through the usual corpocratic channels of GMA and national distributors.

Garrett's Homemade Orange Oil Cleaner

Non-toxic, chemical-free cleaner that smells great, disinfects, and repels pests.

Use as a general purpose cleaner. For laundry, use 2 tbsp + 2 tbsp baking soda.

The orange peel contains orange oil and is naturally extracted by leaving the dried peels in the jar with vinegar. The clove and orange oil also disinfects and repels pests. A few drops of soap can be added to increase slipperiness for removing dirt.

1) Dried citrus peels (orange, lemon, lime) 2) jar or container to hold (1) 3) Vinegar 4) Clove powder (optional) 5) Soap (optional)

Methods

Add everything to the jar and shake well. Wait a day.
