We all love a clean home, but do we really need to use harsh products to keep it clean?
Chemical cleaning solutions can help make everything look great again, but it can also come with problems such as allergies and are not exactly eco-friendly.
If you aren’t comfortable using chemicals around the home, you can use natural oils instead! Australian essential oils can disinfect and remove stains just as well as chemically driven solutions.
Here are the four best oils to use:
Lemon Myrtle is a liquid found in citrus fruits that holds antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
It is perfect alternative solution to use as a kitchen surface spray.
It has been proven to kill bacteria such as Aspergillus Niger, E. Coli and Salmonella that can reside in kitchens.
Jessica Bragdon, found of Koala Eco described the oil as “Effective in repelling common household bacteria, Mandarin Oil is also known for being the most calming and uplifting essential oil, which is why we decided to add it to our dish soap and Multi-Purpose Kitchen Cleaner.”
Not only does it have a fresh smell, the oil can also help boost the immune system. Something much welcomed during the colder seasons.
It is especially great for bathrooms as it helps fight bacteria’s such as E. Coli and Streptococcus.
What can’t Peppermint do? It can help with common pest problems around the home and can be a great glass cleaning solution!
“Peppermint Oil is a great option when it comes to polishing up stainless steel, chrome and glass, leaving them streak free and super clean, without the nasty side effects,” she adds.
