Here are 5 simple recipes to natural disinfect your home:

Floor Cleaner

  • Mix 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar into a quart of water. Add 5 drops of essential oil. I recommend lemon or scotch pine.
  • Apply to the floor with a mop. The essential oil will work to reduce the smell of the vinegar.

Vacuum Cleanser

  • Soak a tissue with 5 drops of lemon essential oil. Allow the vacuum to suck up the tissue to remove the dusty smell from the vacuum.
  • If the vacuum has a basin for water, add 5 drops of lemon essential oil directly to the water.

Stain Remover

  • Add 2 drops of lemon essential oil directly to a stain. Rub it into the fabric and allow it to sit on the stain for a few minutes before placing it inside a washing machine.


Air Freshener

  • Add 12 drops of lemon essential oil to 1 quart of distilled water
  • Put mixture into a spray bottle and shake before each use.

Refrigerator Cleaner

  • In a bucket, combine 2 Tbsp. baking soda, 1 quart warm water and 5 drops lemon essential oil.
  • Use a lint free cloth to soak in the solution and wipe down all surfaces.
