ALL PURPOSE CLEANER-Combine 8 drops of pine essential oil, ½ teaspoon of liquid castile soap, ½ teaspoon of distilled white vinegar, and 16 ounces of water in a spray bottle. Spray on nonporous surface and let stand for a half minute before wiping away with a clean sponge or cloth.
DRAIN CLEANER-Pour ½ cup white vinegar followed by one handful of baking soda down the drain. Let it sit for at least an hour then run hot water. This solution naturally cleans and freshens the drain and is also good for loosening minor clogs.
MOLD and MILDEW REMOVER-In a 16 ounce spray bottle, mix 2 tablespoons borax, 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and ½ teaspoon each of eucalyptus and lavender essential oils. Shake, fill with water, and shake again. Spray nonporous surface, scrub with a soft brush and rinse.
AIR FRESHENER-Add 4 tablespoons of any dried herb and 2 cups of water and simmer on the stove. OR, just fill a 4 ounce spray bottle with 10 drops of essential oil and water. Spray in the air when needed. My favorite essential oils for air freshening are lavender, eucalyptus, or peppermint but any fragrant oil will work.
