Cleaning with Mrs. Herb Cleaner!

Mrs. Herb Cleaner Instructing Us on How to Clean with Natural Products
We Had Gingersnaps with Pumpkin Dip, Cherry Scones with Lemon Curd and Caramel Tea!
The Village Herb Shop's Lovely Front Herb Garden
You all know one of my favorite places to visit is Kathleen Gips' lovely Village Herb Shop in Chagrin Falls.  So when I had the chance to be a guest and go with the Piccadilly Herb Club yesterday, I went.  Didn't have to drive although I had to be a backup GPS for our bus driver to make sure we got to Chagrin Falls!  We were instructed by Mrs. Herb Cleaner on the ins and outs of natural cleaning.  Kathleen always gives lots of information and has a great handout.  Mrs. Herb Cleaner was quite passionate about not using petroleum based products.  The best and cheapest cleaner is white distilled vinegar and you can fancy it up with herbs of your choosing, like thyme, lemon verbena, mint.  You get the idea.  Two cups of herbs to four cups of vinegar or one cup of herbs to two cups of vinegar.  We had a great time.   Kathleen is celebrating 20 years in business.  That is a very special achievement and she has shared her vast herbal knowledge with us over those years.  Thanks Kathleen for inspiring many of us (me especially) in our herbal lives.  Hot and humid today.  Storms overnight and tomorrow.  Cooler Sunday.  Hope you are having a great day.  Talk to you later.
