Here is one of our most popular recipes, the Homemade All Purpose Cleaner. You can use any type of essential oil you like, but I am particularly fond of Eucalyptus Oil as it really makes your home smell amazing, and is a natural deterrent to ants (#winning). You can use it on any surface around the home. White vinegar is also great at keeping away mould spores from growing in the bathroom!
- 500ml hot water
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 10 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
Put all the ingredients into a large spray bottle and shake well. Use all around the house!
Store the spray bottle in a dark cupboard in between uses.
Good Alternatives to Eucalyptus Oil:
- Lemon Oil
- Tea Tree Oil
- Clove Oil (Clove Oil is VERY strong – only use this for the bathroom as it has fantastic mould killing properties)
- Lavender Oil
- Peppermint Oil (Peppermint Oil is also really great at deterring ants in the kitchen).
