We are constantly bombarded on tv, in magazines, and in stores by ads for various cleaners. The cheaper ones are chemical-laden and the natural ones can get really pricey. Some work and some don't. How can we navigate all of these choices? Easy, ditch the store bought cleaners and make your own!
Using vinegar as a cleaner has so many benefits. It's effective and it's a fraction of the cost. I've heard some protest to the use of vinegar because they are not a big fan of the smell. Well, not to worry, the smell of vinegar dissipates as it dries.
I like to use tea tree essential oil in my vinegar cleaner, but you can use so many others. I've known others who use lavender, lemon, cedar, the possibilities are limitless. So, feel free to find the essential oil that is best suited for your individual needs. I, personally prefer tea tree oil because it is a natural disinfectant and mold killer. It gives that extra boost to the vinegar so I can clean with confidence. You can check out more uses for tea tree oil here.
