Today we’ve got a recipe for an all natural essential oil floor cleaner. This is perfect for cleaning and disinfecting kitchen and bathroom floors. You can disinfect and give your floors a deep clean without using any cleaning products with questionable ingredients.
- 1 – 2 gallons of hot water
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1 cup rubbing alcohol
- 10 drops of Orange essential oil
- 10 drops of Melaleuca/Tea Tree essential oil
- 10 drops of Lemon essential oil
Fill your sink or a bucket with the hot water. Then combine the vinegar, alcohol, and essential oils.
Use a mop or sponge to clean the floor as usual, using your all natural floor cleaner.
Optional: Need something a little more heavy-duty for scrubbing? Add ½ cup of baking soda to the mixture. You may want to rinse the floor after, as it might leave a residue. Just mop the floor again with hot water.
Orange, Melaleuca/Tea Tree, and Lemon are all anti-microbial oils, and are excellent choices for disinfecting. Plus the citrus oils cut through grease and grime like magic, and leave behind a strong, citrusy clean scent!
