Homemade Floor Cleaner

Homemade Floor Cleaner

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup alcohol
  • 2-3 drops dish soap (Castile, Dawn, etc.)
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops orange essential oil
  • 3 drops peppermint essential oil
  • Fine-mist spray bottle – 24oz

  1. Add all ingredients to spray bottle and shake to combine.
  2. Sweep/vacuum the floor.
  3. Spray cleaner on the floor.
  4. Wipe up with a microfiber cloth.

A note on fabric softeners and microfiber:

Never use fabric softeners or dryer sheets when washing your microfiber cloths because they’ll affect their ability to absorb liquids properly. I don’t use either of these products on any of our laundry anyways; instead, I just use some vinegar in the rinse cycle to keep our laundry fresh and soft.

Where can you buy essential oils?

You can find them at any health food store that sells natural and organic products. If you can’t find a store near you, you can always purchase them online from my Amazon Store or Mountain Rose Herbs.
