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.
How To Make A Natural Eco Friendly Floor Cleaner
All the materials that you need for this floor cleaner can easily be found in most shops, so you can start making and using this today!
You Will Need
- 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?
Do you think that you would be making this in the future? I would love to see your results. Do comment below, or find me on social media.
