Surface Cleaner DIY
This protective surface cleaner has been a great addition to the DIY cleaners I use in my home. It’s particularly useful during flu season because it contains a protective blend of essential oils. This spray is one of my tricks I use when one of the seven of us is sick and we don’t want it to spread like the plague to the whole family. I use it in areas of the house that need to be disinfected, like my kitchen counters and table, door knobs, refrigerator handles, and faucets. It smells amazing and is totally non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about polluting your home with chemicals.
You’ll need only 3 ingredients!
- 2 cups of water
- 4 T castile soap
- 20 drops of DōTERRA On Guard essential oil
Step 2: Shake, then spray generously on any surface that needs cleaning, “de-germifying” (that’s a word), or even just a shine, and then wipe dry with a clean cloth. Be sure to give it a shake before each use to keep it mixed.
Notes: If you do not have On Guard essential oil and would like to get some, you can click here to go to my DōTERRA site to purchase it. Also, to read more about castile soap and the other green cleaning ingredients I use, check out my post: Green Cleaning DIY: The Ingredients You Need.
