With the abundance of toxins that we are exposed to everyday it makes sense to consider an all-natural alternative when it comes to cleaning products. Try out these DIY recipes using natural ingredients like Lemon Essential Oil that will leave your home smelling fresh and clean.
Lemon essential not only has a refreshing and uplifting smell but works great as an oil for cleaning because of its known properties as being anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral, and to help break down grease, grime, sticky substances, crayons, soap scum and scuffs on floors.
Mix all ingredients into a 1 Litre spray bottle. Shake well, spray and wipe on counters, cabinets, sinks and toilets.
