Get Rid of Lysol and Do a safe All Purpose Cleaner Recipe
So you know how when you catch your baby holding the spray bottle filled with Lysol Spray Cleaner and you want to scream and cry for fear because you know that they have been sucking the toxic cleaner out of the nosal end. Here is a very safe alternative with proven research info that will not harm your baby if that curious little thing gets into your cleaning bucket while your scrubbing away at the germs.
Two ways to choose.
Spray bottle filled with water and Lemon Essential Oil from doTERRA.
Or 1/4 cup Vinegar, 1 cup water and 30 drops of Lemon Oil.(link to why this oil is so good to clean with)
You can also use Lavender, Eucalyptus,or Wild Orange.(any time a word has color its a link check it out.)
To do heavy traffic door handles use On Guard oil especially in the winter time.
To make an even tougher cleaner lets add a 1teaspoon of Borax or Baking Soda. Ooop scary some will say, not going to spray that on my counter, well here's a few linky views that may help you decide if that's the way you want to move in your recipe mix. Crunchy Betty says Getting to the Bottom of Borax and then of course there is the infamous (as my kids call it) Wikipedia.
So there's the scoop or the spray however you want to see it.
Personally I like getting rid of the toxic Lysol and going green and feeling like the toast that gets set on the counter isn't picking up some residue that's harmful. You can actually consume doTERRA oils they are that safe but your not supposed to do that with Lysol.
If I could I would put a big red X over that Lysol container. Which one would you choose to use? Healthy spray bottle with consumable oil or toxic Lysol wipes or sprays?
On this link you can see lots of other ways to use doTERRA oils as a cleaner with the recipes and all, Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Wood Floor Cleaner, etc. just hit all those words back there.
