FLOOR CLEANER

Combine the following ingredients into a spray bottle:

2 cups warm water

2 drops Castile soap

3 drops lemon or orange essential oils

2 drops tea tree oil

Spray & Mop! Easy Peasy!

 

FURNITURE POLISH

Mix 2 parts white distilled vinegar, 2 parts olive oil, 1 part lemon juice. Lightly dip corner of clean microfiber cloth into mixture and rub into your wood surfaces.

 

GLASS CLEANER

Combine 2/3 cup distilled water, ½ cup white distilled vinegar, and 8 drops of lemongrass essential oils into glass spray bottle. Spray and wipe with paper towels or clean microfiber cloth.

If you don’t use essential oils, you can mix 50% water and 50% white vinegar in spray bottle.

ALL PURPOSE CLEANER

Combine into a glass spray bottle:

2 cups distilled water

¼ cup castile soap

15 drops of lavender, peppermint, or orange essential oil (or combination of those—personally I love the mix of all 3)

 

NATURAL ROOM FRESHENER

Put 2-3 TBS of baking soda in a coffee filter and add 5-8  drops of your favorite essential oils. I prefer lavender and peppermint or lavender and citrus scents. Secure the coffee filter with a rubber band and place this little “sachet” in various inconspicuous places around your house. I put them in corner of my bedroom, bottom of a trashcan, or in clothing drawers. This is a great and simple deodorizer for your home!
