    Natural Cleaning Tips

    by Andrea Butje on December 12, 2011

    Here are a few fun natural cleaning tips from my eBook, Essential Living: Aromatherapy Recipes for Health and Home.

    Cutting Boards
    To keep wooden and plastic cutting boards free of bacteria, use a few drops of Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon). First, wash the board with hot water and castile soap. Then put about five drops of Lemon essential oil on a clean sponge and wipe the board vigorously, front and back. A nice side effect is that the sponge is now also clean and bacteria free!

    Floors
    Use hydrosols and hot water on the floors. Any mop will do, but we suggest mops with a removable terry cloth cleaning surface. They’re great for cleaning hardwood floors, ceramic tile, marble, and vinyl. They also work well on ceilings, walls, and windows. The terry cloth cover is removable and machine washable.

    When cleaning floors, soak the terry cloth cover (or regular mop) in hot water. Squeeze the water out, then pour a cap full (a few tablespoons) of Lavender hydrosol or Sweet Grass hydrosol directly onto the mop.

    Deodorizing Spray for Trash
