DIY Green Cleaning: The Holiday Edition

So, if you are like me you have to do some cleaning in preparation for holiday company.  Why not choose a holiday-inspired scent to add some festivity to the house?

We have made the following two using peppermint oil, and are using it to clean.  The house smells clean and minty, perfect for the holiday.  (Note, this is the same recipe we use year round, just substituting peppermint for the tea tree or lavender we usually use.)

"Holiday" All Purpose Cleaner

In a 24 or 32 oz spray bottle, mix:

  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp plant-based dish detergent 
  • 1 tsp peppermint or cinnamon essential oil
  • 3 cups hot water

Shake to mix, and you are ready to go.

"Holiday" Streak-free Glass, Shower & Wood Cleaner

In a 24 or 32 oz spray bottle combine:

  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 2 tsp plant-based dish detergent
  • 1 tsp peppermint or cinnamon essential oil
  • 2.5 cups hot water

Shake to mix, and you are ready to go!
