When I first decided to finally switch from using toxic chemicals to clean our home, I made mistake after mistake. The spray bottles did not work, the products did not work, and I purchased unnecessary ingredients. Hopefully, my previous mistakes will save you time, money and frustration.
I prefer using amber glass, four ounce spray bottles. https://www.specialtybottle.com/ has a fantastic selection. https://mountainroseherbs.com/ is also a wonderful source for essential oils and other natural products. Although there are many online recipes for natural disinfectant cleaners, here is the recipe that works best for my family:
- 12 drops grapefruit essential oil
- 8 drops lemon essential oil
- 12 drops rosemary essential oil
- 4 ounces distilled water
We label this solution G.L.R., and use it on our counters, sinks, faucets and more. My research indicates that the combination of essential oils act as a natural disinfectant. I have never tested this theory but adore the product. It smells amazing too!
