This past year in particular, I've become rather smitten with essential oils. I especially love them for cleaning. It's true, I do sort of enjoy cleaning. That said, it's still a job, so if my labors result in everything smelling fantastic, I find it to be huge payoff. My favorite essential oil uses? The dryer to scent the laundry, in that old musty vacuum bag, and the floor cleaner. Mmmm, yes, my floor cleaner!
I've taken to making most of my cleaners and detergents, but I've found the best wood/floor cleaner to be Glista Clean concentrate. It works well, has fairly "green" ingredients, I can order it online with free shipping, and a quart lasts a full year -- and I wash a lot of floors. In this last batch I made (1 Tbl Cleaner : 1 Cup H2O, in squirt bottle), I added a few drops of lavender and lemon essential oils. Heavenly! Fresh and perfect for summer.
Now. Maybe geranium and lemon for the glass cleaner? Oooo, the excitement!
