Summer is the perfect time to freshen up your home. Many store-bought products can contain high levels of chemicals, which is why I advocate for using homemade versions that include essential oils. They are a great alternative: all the clean, without the unpleasant effects or aromas. Tea Tree is effective in cleaning products because it has properties that fight environmental threats. Below, I’ve included a recipe that I’ve found useful as I’ve made the switch to all-natural cleaning.
Tea-rrific Toilet Cleaner
- 1 c. Vinegar
- 2 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
- 2 drops Peppermint, Sweet Orange or Lavender Essential Oil (Depends on desired aroma)
- Spray Bottle
Fill bottle with vinegar, then add essential oils. Spray solution on toilet seat, letting it sit for a few minutes before wiping. Use as needed.
