A Few of our Favorite Cleaning Recipes

***Always check your surfaces for safe usage with these recipes.



Basic Sink Cleanser


Safe for porcelain or stainless steel sinks. Cleans and keeps drains and disposals fresh smelling and free of clogs. A vinegar rinse can be used before the final hot water rinse to prevent residue from the baking soda.


¼ cup baking soda

½ cup vinegar

3 drops Lavender, rosemary, lemon, and orange essential oil

Combine all ingredients slowly to prevent fizzing. We like to keep a paste of this in a canning jar. Rinse sink well with hot water. Pour the cleanser in the sink and wipe with a SKOY sponge or cloth. Rinse again with hot water.


Soap Scum Remover


½ cup baking soda

1/8 cup salt

20 drops essential oil of choice

Vinegar

Combine baking soda, salt and essential oil. Add just enough vinegar to make a paste. Apply to surface and scrub with a damp cloth or sponge. Rinse well.

Great for faucets, soap dishes and toothbrush holders. Not to mention the tub/shower. Addition of vinegar will produce fizzing action.





No Scrub Toilet Bowl Cleaner


Use this one in toilet bowls that have rings in them or are very dirty. You can put this into the toilet, right before bed, and wake up with a clean toilet.

1 cup borax

1 cup vinegar

10 drops pine or lavender essential oil

5 drops lemon or lime essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a bowl/bottle. Pour all at once into the toilet bowl and let sit overnight. Flush in the morning.



Enjoy these earth friendly cleaning ideas. Again, make sure to check your own surfaces for compatibility with these ingredients! Happy Cleaning!
