Making your own Orange essential oil disinfectant is fun, easy and far healthier than a store-bought disinfectant. Using Orange essential oil during this time of year uplifts the mood in the home too. Springtime fresh!
You will need to make the orange essential oil spray:
- 14oz. spray bottle (the “Hudson” brand spray bottle found at Lowe’s holds up the longest)
- 20 -25 drops of Young Living Orange essential oil
Fill the spray bottle nearly full with water (leave some air space so you can shake it to disperse the essential oil).
Add 20-25 drops of Orange essential oil, shake, and you’re ready to go!
The blend Citrus Fresh also makes an excellent disinfectant too, see Ways to Use Citrus Fresh.
This recipe takes less than 2 minutes to make!
How To Use Your Disinfectant Spray for Cleaning
Spray surfaces until damp, let it sit for a minute, wipe with a clean rag or sponge. This works perfectly for cleaning floors, countertops, toilet bowls, sinks, etc.
Be sure to spritz around the base of the toilet too and let it air dry to kill any nasty smelling odors typical around the floor near toilets.
How To Use Your Disinfectant Spray To Clean Sinks, Tubs & Showers
Spray until moistened, sprinkle some Baking Soda into the tub or sink, rub clean, rinse.
Give your sinks and tubs a spritz of the spray after they’ve been cleaned and let it air-dry, this allows the essential oil in the spray mixture to continue disinfecting.
