Vinegar Cleaner Recipes
Distilled white vinegar used to make homemade cleaner can be bought in large, inexpensive bottles at most grocery stores.
Do D.I.Y vinegar cleaners really disinfect? Vinegar is strong enough to clean "ordinary household grime." If you're cleaning up after the flu or a virus, you'll want to use a stronger disinfectant.
Tea Tree Oil Uses
Tea tree oil has antimicrobial properties. It's used in body, skin and hair care products as well as cleaning products.
Tea tree oil should be diluted, especially before applying it any part of your body.
How to Use Clove Oil
Clove oil can be used in both cleaning and personal care products. With a strong, warm aroma similar to cinnamon and nutmeg, is both comforting and invigorating.
Clove oil should be diluted before use. You can dilute a few drops of clove oil with water or oil.
Use water to dilute clove oil to make cleaning products, like this kitchen cleaner. Or, use oil to dilute a few drops of clove oil for personal care products.
There’s really no wrong way to make this kitchen spray, so don’t fret about exact amounts. I usually fill the bottle with half water and half vinegar, then add drops of essential oils.
You can change the essential oils you use throughout the year, depending on the season and your mood. Lavender and mint are two of my favorites.
Take a few minutes here and there to do a little something nice for yourself that will make you happy. You deserve it!
