IDEAS FOR MAKING HOME CLEANING AGENTS FROM ESSENTIAL OILS:
I recommend using all of these essential oils with the recipes I have written down in this article. When you wish you can change the amounts in the recipes, but I do recommend using only the oils I have brought out as the best ones.

To save the nature use cloth napkins instead of paper towels when you can.

SHOWER AND BATH CLEANER
Wet the shower and bath. Then shake a fair amount of baking soda on the wet surface. Then put Tea tree, Peppermint and Lemon essential oils on the baking soda. Put 10 drops of each essential oil. Then add a little vinegar to the soda. Vinegar makes the baking soda to bubble, then take a brush/rag and start cleaning the whole shower with that mixture. This removes all the dirt, lime scale, dirty tile joints and stains left behind by detergents. You can rinse the whole surface halfway and then repeat the process with a cleaning mixture.
CLEANING THE KETTLE
Kettle leaves behind limestone, which is not a very good thing to drink. It's reasonable to clean the kettle from time to time. Fill the kettle with water, add 50 ml of vinegar, 5 drops of Lemon or Peppermint essential oil. Let the water heat up and then pour it away. After that, repeat the process with clean water so all the essential oil residue could be removed from the kettle with limestone.
WASHING THE FLOORS
This method can be used for stone flooring and also for solid wood and parquet floors. Put a few drops of Lemon and Lavender essential oils on the mop or directly on the floor and clean the floors with it. Both essential oils are used to restore the wood, therefore from time to time, they can be used for wood surfaces, but in small amounts. After that, the floor is evidently clean and the room filled with a good aroma.
REFRESHER FOR CLOTHES IN THE DRYER
You can add all these essential oils directly on the clothes in the dryer, except Orange essential oil, that stains because it has orange-yellowish hue. The rest of these 6 oils won’t stain. When you have put the clothes in the dryer, then put up to 10 drops of oil on the clothes. Essential oils help to clean the clothes, being especially helpful for those who have dust allergies.
You can add essential oils also when you refresh soft animals, bed linen and pillows with the steam feature in your dryer. When you use the steam feature, put, for example, teddy bears and they can be freed from dust and dirt and have a good smell.
