DIY Multi Purpose Green Clean

You will need:

500ml spritz bottle
450ml water
35ml vinegar
1 ½ teaspoons bicarb soda (optional – gives the cleaner a gentle scrubbing action and leaves a matte finish to surfaces)
¼ teaspoon essential oil(s)*

Add vinegar and bicarb to water and mix well.  Add essential oil(s) and mix again.  Pour solution into 500ml bottle.  Shake gently before each use.

Use on many surfaces, bench tops, splash backs, cupboards, basins, toilet, bath and shower, floors [tiles, laminate, floor boards etc.], appliances [toaster, kettle, washing machine – be careful not to rub away writing off the appliance].

Note: recommend - do a test patch before doing full clean just in case cleaner is not suitable to your particular surface.

* eucalyptus cuts through grease and grim
* lemon essential oil smells clean and fresh
