I have never thought of adding my natural cleaner into a spray bottle before. I always used my natural laundry soap mix, ( 2 Tablespoons) with hot water and mixed this into my cleaning bucket with a rag. I love this method but wanted something I could grab and spray.
The spray bottle is a great tool to have around the home for quick clean-ups
I decided to try a recipe I found on the web.
Here is what I have tried.
1/2 cup of white vinegar
2 tablespoons of borax
1/4 cup of Castile soap Dr Bronner’s Tea Tree Liquid Soap
“They have many different scents, so pick your favorite”.
2 teaspoons of Lemongrass essential oil.
I mixed all these together, then added 3 cups of water.
I filled a spray bottle with my mix and stored the rest in a glass jar.
Benefits for cleaning your home with these ingredients:
CASTILE Soap~Acts as a surfactant and helps lift away dirt and cut through grease. An all-natural soap that’s surprisingly strong. A few drops go a long way.
Tea Tree oil~A natural oil that cleanses and disinfects.
Lemongrass Oil~ Has some antiseptic and deodorizing properties, which are helpful in homemade cleaners.
Vinegar~Effective for killing most mold, bacteria, and germs, due to its level of acidity.
I love this mix. I have been using this for a few days now .The smell makes me happy and adds enjoyment to cleaning.
