Tuesday, February 17, 3:00-4:00pm

Location: The Brainery in Prospect Heights

There are plenty of reasons why making your own surface cleaner is an excellent idea.

Whether you’re concerned about saving money, the environment, or your health, this simple DIY project will make a difference! In this class we’ll cover the various ingredients you can use to clean grimy kitchen surfaces and glass. We’ll talk about the possible components of a homemade cleaner and the ratios for mixing. We’ll also spend some time on what’s best to avoid in store-bought products. By the end of class, participants will make their own cleaner blend based on their needs with plenty of time for questions.

Keep an eye out for a weekend session soon!

Taught by Kris De la Torre

Working in food and agriculture helped Kris De la Torre develop a sensitivity to what we put in our bodies. A penchant for perfumes prompted her to ask the same questions about what we put on our bodies. Having taught classes about her favorite ferments (beer, wine and cheese) all over NYC, she looks forward to expanding her classroom to natural beauty and household cleaning products. Kris hopes that through sharing her funny failures and success stories, students will feel empowered to make these everyday products out of ingredients that are good for them and good for the environment.
