All U Need All Purpose Cleaner
1 cup water
2 teaspoons castile soap (check Amazon or your local health food store)
10 drops tea tree oil
10 drops lemon oil (bonus: fabulous kitchen degreaser!)
Combine all ingredients in a *glass spray bottle. Shake for 30 seconds to combine.
To benefit from the antibacterial properties, surfaces should be allowed to air dry, or at least remain damp for 2 minutes.
Now about that *glass spray bottle: we know what you’re thinking. Where are you ever going to find one and why would you want to?
First, the why. Essential oils are fabulous. Not only do they smell great, they’re safer for your home, your environment, and your family than gobs of chemicals and they do a fabulous job. A little goes a very long way. An average size, 1 oz bottle of essential oil contains approximately 600 drops. This recipe only uses 20 total. But there is a downside. Because they are so potent, they do have a tendency to cause the harmful chemicals found in plastic to leach into the spray. That’s why we recommend using a glass spray bottle.
Now, the where. This is the really easy part. You know that bottle of apple cider vinegar you bought at the grocery store? Most likely it came in a glass bottle. Empty the vinegar from the bottle, run it through the dishwasher, and pull the spray nozzle off an old spray bottle. If the straw part is too long, you can trim it to fit the bottle. If you’re concerned about the chemicals from the plastic spray attachment leaching, remove the spray attachment prior to storing. See? That was easy!
