Do-it-Yourself Cleaning Recipes

Sharon’s Cleaning Tips.

I came across some do-it-yourself cleaning recipes that cut out the chemicals and use essential oils and wanted to share them with you.

All Purpose Cleaning Spray

32-ounce spray bottle
1-2 Tbsp. Thieves Household Cleaner
½ cup white vinegar
Distilled Water

Fill the spray bottle about half full with distilled water, add Thieves cleaner and vinegar; fill remaining bottle, slowly and gently, with distilled water. Remember to leave room for the spray nozzle; so don’t fill it all the way to the top. Place spray nozzle on the bottle and gently move back and forth to mix together all ingredients. Use for most of your household cleaning needs.

Before using, be sure to test a small spot for any surface you question.

Carpet Freshener

16-ounce mason Jar
Daisy Lid for Mason Jar
16 ounces Baking Soda
20 drops essential oil(s) of your choice (try using 15 drops orange/tangerine and 5 drops cloves)

Place baking soda in mason jar, add essential oil(s), gently stir with a dinner knife or instrument of your choice. Allow to sit overnight so the oils can “marry” with the baking soda. Sprinkle on carpet, as needed, and vacuum.

Before using, be sure to test a small spot on any surface you question.
