Diy Basic Antiseptic Cleanser – Annie’s Advice
If you use this great formula you save about $7.66 for this one cleaner alone. (And it asks for essential oils, too, which aren’t cheap!)
Not only does this preparation clean, but the essential oils disinfect and provide a natural fragrance.
Makes 2 cups
Cost for 2 cups:
- DIY = $0.84
- Store Bought = $8.50
Up to 1 teaspoon antiseptic essential oil (thyme, sweet orange, lemongrass, rose, clove, eucalyptus, cinnamon, rosemary, birch, lavender, or tea tree)
1 teaspoon washing soda
1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent
2 cups hot water
Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake to dissolve and to blend the minerals. I like to spray this cleanser onto a surface, then leave it for 15 minutes or so before I wipe it up with a rag, to give the essential oil’s antiseptic qualities time to work.
Takes about 1 minute to prepare, shelf life is indefinite; just store in spray bottle or in a glass jar with a screw top.
