OMG! This smells wonderful and works very well! a 1-2 punch for sure!
(adapted from a recipe from Barbara Lucks)
Not only does this preparation clean but the essential oils disinfect and provide a natural, festive fragrance.
1 teaspoon Sweet Orange or Mandarine essential oil
a few drops of Clove Oil and Cinnamon Leaf oils
1 teaspoon washing soda
2 teaspoons borax
1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent
2 cups hot water (to dissolve the soda and borax)
Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake to dissolve and blend the minerals. You can spray this cleaner onto a surface then leave it for 15 minutes before wiping it off, to give the essential oils antiseptic qualities time to work. Makes 2 cups.
It will leave your house smelling like an old-fashioned, clove studded pomander ball!
