You probably know that I much prefer natural and eco friendly cleansers over more chemical types. And that is especially so since having my little one. It is much better to not have all those hash chemical fumes in my house. But I do still need a way of cleaning my vinyl, laminate and natural wood floors. So here is how to make a natural eco friendly floor cleaner.

  • White vinegar – I bought mine from Wilko, but you can get it here
  • Some boiled and cooled or filtered water
  • 12-15 drops of essential oil, my favourites are lavender, tea tree or citrus scents
  • An old spray bottle, or glass spray bottle.

 

Fill your bottle to about three-quarters full of filtered / boiled and cooled water

Top the bottle up with white vinegar.

Add 12-15 drops of your favourite essential oil.

Put the top on the spray bottle and give it all a good shake up!

You can use this to clean so many surfaces around the home, but it is especially good for floors because it isn’t as strong as my usual surface cleaner. The vinegar scent disappears quickly, but the essential oils mask this if you don’t really like that smell.

 

It is great for most floors. But it is always wise to do a patch test before using any cleaning product for the first time. Sometimes this can strip wood floors of their polish, so you may need to dilute the vinegar even more. And be careful on granite and marble surfaces, as this may damage. Why not spray it before using my swiffer mop cover?

      It certainly will clean your floor Alex. Thought I do advise you try it on a small patch first to ensure it doesn’t fade or affect any finish. It cannot disinfect or sanitise though.

    I have used white vinegar for a while and also have essential oils (I am an aromatherapist). Never thought about putting them together, I am going to give this a go today! But also find other ways of cleaning. A favourite of mine is cleaning the dishwasher with white vinegar and bicarb.

      Oh yes, vinegar and bicarb are brilliant for cleaning the oven and for putting down the drains to get rid of smell too!
