From the Publisher
1 teaspoon borax
1⁄2 teaspoon washing soda
1 teaspoon liquid castile soap
2 cups distilled water or boiling water, cooled but still warm
4 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops orange essential oil
Citrus-Fresh All-Purpose Cleaner
I use this cleaner just about everywhere in my home: on floors and patio furniture and in trash cans and the bathroom, to name a few. It is very easy to make and considerably less expensive than other natural cleaners. Give it a try and attack those tough stains!
Place borax, washing soda, and castile soap in a 16-ounce or larger glass spray bottle. Add the water and essential oils, cap tightly, and shake well. Use as needed.
I use as a bathroom cleaner, floor pretreater (test a small area first on wood floors), and all-purpose kitchen cleaner and on toys to disinfect. Will last 6 months at room temperature.
