Super Saver Household Cleaner

To go along with the Super Saver Sprayer, I have to tell you what I use for my Super Saver Household Cleaner. I couldn't just let you go with just making the sprayer without telling you what I use to fill it. hehe  That's the only fair thing to do, right???

It all started several years ago, when I realized that I began to get really bad reactions every time I would clean - especially the bathroom. First, I would get a slight headache ----- next would come dizziness ----- and then I would have major trouble breathing!!! It freaked me out!!! The headache and dizziness - I could handle. But, oh boy, when I couldn't breathe - that sent me over the top!!!!

My search began to find the simplest solution but most effective against germs and viruses. I knew Tea Tree Oil was good for almost anything regarding viruses or bacteria. But, holy cow, the smell!!!!! It's terrible!!! My husband didn't even want to be in the same room when I sprayed it!!! So, I had to find something that was a bit more adaptable for people with sensitive noses. hehe

The next best thing I tried was Lemon. I love that fresh, clean scent!!! Everybody can handle lemon - or at least I think so. Lemon is my "go to" oil. It has so many great properties. It's great for viruses and fungus. I love to use it on my countertops as an antiseptic - killing those nasty germs!!

I also like to use Orange oil since I love the wonderful scent. The house smells so clean and uplifting with the smell of orange wafting through all the rooms. This one is great to use for the holidays!

So, my base oil is always Tea Tree Oil since it is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. This one can be used for tons of things. Even insects don't like it!! So, you can say good-bye to any pests when you use Tea Tree Oil. That's just a bonus!! hehe  That's why I use it so much - even though it stinks!

But, to cover up its horrible smell - I throw in some Lemon or Orange oil which calms down the Tea Tree oil scent. Now, everyone is happy!!!

So, to put it all together - you will need your Super Saver Sprayer. Then, fill half the bottle with vinegar. You can use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar whichever you like best. I prefer white; I think it smells a bit better. But, that's totally my opinion. I fill up the rest of the bottle with water. It can be tap water or filtered. Now comes the good part!!! This is when you can have fun!!! For disinfecting and cleaning, I put in about 20 drops each of Tea Tree Oil and Lemon. I always keep those two oils on hand. But, if you want to have fun - you can use Orange oil in place of the Lemon. You can also substitute Clove Oil  and Cinnamon Oil instead of Tea Tree Oil. I love doing this around the holidays where the house will smell like pumpkin pie!!!!

This is how you want to make your cleaner - always have some form of a disinfectant and antibacterial agent in it and then work from there. It's basically a 1 to 1 ratio and then add your supporting oils. This cleaning solution takes the place of your multi-purpose chemical cleaners. So, more headaches - no more dizziness and definitely no more breathing problems!!! I love it!!! I'm don't dread cleaning anymore!!! It's wonderful!!! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!!! Happy cleaning!!!!
