At the same time, we want to leave as little chemicals on our bodies as possible and not inhale them. Maybe you're ready for a new experiment. How about giving essential oils a chance in the kitchen too?
These oils are great for cleaning:
Eucalyptus - for the bath
The perfect cleaning product for the bathroom. Take a 250ml spray bottle and add 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol and fill up the rest with water. Then add 5 drops of eucalyptus. Finished.
