I LOVE this stuff! I had been using mostly vinegar and baking soda to clean sinks, counters, and the tub. Although it worked, I didn’t like the smell of vinegar, and I was finding some stains tough to remove. This spray is the answer – wow does this work! The essential oils and borax make it a good disinfectant. It smells great and works better than vinegar at cleaning counters and the tub. It easily erases red wine and coffee stains and takes off tub residue. This recipe is based on the one in Better Basics for the Home: Simple Solutions for Less Toxic Living.

1 cup hot water
1 teaspoon Borax
½ teaspoon washing soda

½ teaspoon castile soap
4 drops sweet orange essential oil
2 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops tea tree essential oil

In a jar with a lid, put hot water, Borax, and washing soda. Shake until well blended. Pour into a spray bottle (preferably solid color or tinted, not clear to protect the essential oils). Add castile soap and essential oils. Shake. Spray on the surfaces and wipe off with a rag.

Note: I use Dr. Bonner’s Baby Mild Liquid Pure Castile Soap because it is exactly the same as their other liquid soaps without added scents. This allows me to add different scents depending on the use. Dr. Bronner’s is not tested on animals, 100% vegan, uses organic ingredients, and uses fair trade ingredients.
