Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils

DIY All Purpose Cleaner
3 oz water
2 tsp liquid castile soap ...
Dash white vinegar
5 drops peppermint
15 drops lemon
15 drops wild orange

DIY On Guard Spray Cleaner
1 cup distilled water
1 Tbsp Bronner's Castile Liquid Soap (you can buy on Amazon or at Target or Kroger)
10-15 drops OnGuard. (You could also use any of your other favorite oils to make this cleaner)
Put in a glass spray bottle and use to clean any surface.
You can use ON GUARD CLEANER CONCENTRATE. Just follow directions on bottle for dilution ratios for multi-purpose, dishes, bathrooms, and tough jobs.

Did you know you can steam clean your microwave with essential oils? Here’s a handy dandy tip ~
Fill a bowl with water and add 1 tablespoon white vinegar and 5 drops Lemon oil. Microwave for 5 minutes. When the microwave turns off don't open the door, let the steam sit for a few minutes and then wipe the microwave clean. Brilliant!
