We know when you think of essential oils, you’re thinking of oils you can use on yourself when you’re relaxing in the bath one evening or getting a massage. But truthfully, you can use essential oils for all kinds of things in your home, especially in cleaning. Our team at Go Green Cleaning Experts often uses Young Living Essential Oils to enhance our cleaning quality, and we think these oils will give you a cleaner home.
A lemon essential oil, which is cold-pressed from lemon rinds, is amazing for eliminating stubborn home odors, and permeating your home with a clean, lemon scent. You can also squeeze out a few drops to your floors and windows to clean them. Never use this oil on granite and stone surfaces, as it may damage them.
Peppermint’s distinct scent immensely helps with clearing your sinuses with just a few whiffs of it. It can used in conjunction with all of these scents to create a healthy, clean aroma throughout your home or work space.
Along with its positive and citrus aroma, orange essential oils are great tools to clean your floors with. Combine 14 drops of the oil with ¼ cup of vinegar and water to leave your floors tidy and shining. You can also mix two cups of baking soda with 15 drops of this oil into your carpet to eliminate fleas that household pets may have dragged in.
