I love that this cleaner isn’t filled with a lot of harsh chemicals. I feel good about my kids using this cleaner because I know exactly what ingredients are in it. Castille soap, essentail oils, and rubbing alcohol are a great combination of effective cleaners. This cleaner is deeply cleansing and dries quickly (thanks to the alcohol!) One of my favorite ways to use this cleaner is on my kitchen cupboards. It is amazing how shiny and clean they look after using this. The fact that it smells AMAZING is another lovely benefit!!!
Another great benefit to making your own cleaner is that it is very inexpensive!!! Once you buy the basic ingredients for the cleaner you will have enough to make A LOT of cleaner! This has saved me money by not having to buy expensive cleaners from the store.
If you have granite countertops in your home, one thing to note when choosing what oils to use in this cleaner is to make sure you are not using any citrus oils (such as lemon!) or anything that contains vinegar. The acidity in the citrus oils and the vinegar can damage your granite. This is one of the reasons I chose the Eucalyptus castille soap with the Cinnamon and Cassia essential oils.
