This one I happened across quite by accident.
I had the eucalyptus oil out to clean some sticky residue off the new toilet suite, from where it was wrapped in sticky packing tape. It did a fantastic job at that let me say, just oil on an old cleaning cloth and rubbing. From there I just kept cleaning down the rest of the toilet with the eucalyptus soaked cloth.
This method worked really well and left a lovely clean fragrance. I have tried the vinegar and bicarb method, but this never really felt clean to me and left a film of gritty powder on the surface. Soaking the cloth with the oil did use quite a bit of oil, so I went from there to mixing the oil in a cheap spray bottle with water.
This is a keeper!!
To about 2 cups of water in the spray bottle I add about 2 Tb eucalyptus oil. Shake well, spray surface and wipe clean with old cloth. It's that easy!!
100 percent pure eucalyptus oil, 200ml, $8.50 + 500ml spray bottle, $1
So this bottle of oil will be able to fill my 500ml spray bottle 5 times or in other words, each 500ml bottle costs $1.70. I can deal with that.
A green cleaner, no toxic chemicals, no yucky residue, heaps less land fill and the satisfaction of a diy product!!
What green products do you use around the home? Do you use eucalyptus oil? What for?
