Favorite DIY Surface Cleaner Using Essential Oils

So I have spent this beautiful Sunday inside, all day, cleaning!!! After months of neglect, (thank you “morning sickness”) I finally had the urge and energy to clean the entire house.

Now before you judge, things did get wiped down, vacuumed, or had a broom taken to it here and there. This was all done thanks to a wonderfully understanding hubby, but today was the first time in a while everything was giving a deep scrubbing.

Now one of my favorite things to use when cleaning is a natural based cleaner. With asthma and allergies always rearing their ugly heads, chemical based cleaners get the best of me. So a few months back I got on Pinterest to search and after reading a few articles and recipes for a natural based cleaner I thought I would give a stab at making my own cleaner.  A bit of distilled water, some vinegar, and a few essential oils later and I had a wonderful surface cleaner.

I will say each of these ingredients has it’s own purpose, but I am no expert on this and would suggest doing your own research if this is a concern of yours. So, instead of boaring you with all that I figured I would share with you the top 3 reasons why I love this cleaner.

  1. This cleaner leaves everything smelling fresh
  2. It does not leave a residue behind
  3. It cuts grease better than any cleaner I have tried

Now that you know why I love this cleaner give the recipe below a try. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
