I have always made my own citrus cleaners and find they are very effective, simple to make, and very economical. I use a plant spray bottle, to make it in, and use from, again, VERY cheap to buy.

  • 1 part white vinegar
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 4 parts water
  • 10 drops of preferred essential oil
I have used lemon grass, grapefruit and orange (lemon grass is MY favorite!). Add all to bottle, shake, and you are ready to go. This leaves mirrors, windows and tiles streak free. It cleans cooking spills, work surfaces, etc, and leaves a lingering citrus smell.

I see alot of recipes calling for essential oil, but no one ever says where to find it. Can someone please tell me where to find it? Thanks!
