All-Natural Cleaning Recipes
The bathroom is probably the number one room for accumulating grime and germs. There is a very simple DIY recipe for an all-natural scouring cleanser.
All-Natural Scouring Cleanser
All you are going to need is some baking soda, a few drops of liquid dish soap, and essential oils.
- Mix a ½ cup of baking soda with a few drops of liquid soap, to make a paste.
- Add 5-10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil or tea tree essential oil.
- Stir all ingredients together.
Use this to scrub the bathtub, shower or sink. Then simply rinse. Amazing results are guaranteed!
All-Natural Toilet Cleaner
For a toilet cleaner use ½ cup of baking soda and 10 drops of tea tree essential oil.
- Pour them into the toilet.
- Scrub the toilet bowl with a toilet brush.
You can substitute another essential oil to give a nice smell such as Citrus Fresh essential oil blend, or Orange essential oil.
All-Natural Floor Cleaner
One of my favorite all-natural cleaning recipes with essential oils is a floor cleaner recipe. To make this all-natural cleaning recipe with essential oils you need a bucket, water, vinegar and essential oils.
- In the bucket combine two parts warm water with one part white vinegar.
- Add 30-40 drops of essential oil to give it a nice scent.
I love this one, because it makes my entire home smell fantastic even without having to use air freshener. The more drops of essential oil you add, the stronger the smell will be.
I like to mix different essential oils together to make different scents every time. Be creative! Mix floral scents with woodsy ones, or oriental with floral. It depends on your taste.
All-Natural Cleaning Spray
To make sure your home is not only clean but also as healthy as possible, TenancyClean in Battersea suggests you can make yourself a DIY cleaning spray with essential oils. This will make cleaning counters and spills easy, and will give your home a nice scent.
To make this all-natural cleaning spray, you will need: 2 tbsp white vinegar, warm water, ½ tbsp liquid dish soap, and 20 drops of tea tree oil.
- Combine all in a spray bottle.
- Spray on dirty surfaces.
- Wipe with a rag.
The white vinegar is a champion at killing germs and microbes. Tea tree essential oil is known to have properties that support your health as well. Tea Tree essential oil is great to clean your kitchen surfaces, and any other surface in your home.
In my opinion these are some of the most important cleaning products that you are going to need on a daily basis.

Can the all-natural floor cleaner be used on ALL floor types without causing scratches or damage? I’m diving in the natural approach to cleaning after recently watching the film, The Human Experiment.

It’s a vinegar, water and essential oils mixture, so it can be used on wood or tile. You just want to avoid using citrus oils on linoleum flooring. Always test a small area first, since I don’t know what your flooring is made out of specifically.
