Super Smelling Toilet Cleaner

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup baking soda
  • ½ cup vinegar

Essential oils:

Use 10 drops total. Choose from the following or make a blend

  • Lemon
  • Mandarin
  • Tea tree
  • Black spruce

Directions

Pour the baking soda and vinegar in the toilet, then add your essential oils. Let sit for 15 minutes (or longer if necessary), scrub, and flush.  I know it may seem your flushing the oils down the toilet, but its no different than cleaning a surface. The oils will evaporate and penetrate the room during the 15 minutes, so not only does the toilet get cleaned but the air is disinfected at the same time.

  • 3 oz. water
  • 2 tsp. Castile soap
  • 2 tbsp. hydrogen peroxide
  • Dash of white vinegar

Essential oils:

Use 25 drops total or choose from the following to make a blend.

  • Peppermint
  • Black spruce
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Mandarin
  • Eucalyptus

Supplies:

  • 4 or 6 oz. spray bottle

Directions:

Add all ingredients into spray bottle and add your choice of essential oils from above, shake and use.


Clean Cutting Boards

Ingredients:

  • Hot water
  • Castile soap

Essential oils:

About 5 drops of either:

  • Lemon
  • Mandarin

Supplies:

  • Clean sponge

Directions:
First wash the cutting board with hot water and the castile soap. Put the essential oils on a clean sponge and wipe the board vigorously, front and back.

This keeps wooden and plastic cutting boards free of bacteria. A nice side effect is that the sponge is now also clean and bacteria free!


Bye-Bye Bathroom Mold

Ingredients:

  • ½  cup borax (borax is a mineral salt that is mined from the earth)
  • ¼  cup vinegar
  • ¼ cup hydrogen peroxide

Essential oils:

  • 30 drops of Tea tree

Supplies:

  • Bowl to mix the ingredients
  • Brush or sponge

Directions:

Mix the borax, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide in a bowl to make a paste.
Add tea tree oil
Scrub with brush or sponge and rinse with water. For tough mold, let it sit for an hour before rinsing.

If you don’t like the aroma of tea tree, try any citruses, cedar-wood, lemongrass or Eucalyptus. Diffusing oils can help destroy airborne microbes (mold spores are airborne).This recipe is for weekly routine cleaning if the mold is not resolved you may have to use something stronger and then use this as a preventative.
