Green and Mean Effective Mildew and Germ Killer February 21, 2014

When we desire to kill nasty germs in bacteria in the kitchen and bath there are eco-friendly and non-hazardous “potions” to get the job done. Here is a very simple recipe and essential oils are the key. Research has proven that some essential oils have broad antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Essential oils are typically found at health food stores or you can always order them online.

This recipe cannot be technically called a “disinfectant”. The reason being as it has not been classified as such by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Fill the spray bottle with water and then add the tea tee and lavender oils. Shake gently before use. Important, first wipe any spills, water stains, etc. from the area being cleaned. The last step will be to spray the solution of the surface and let it dry. Do not wipe it off! Congratulations, you have disinfected safely and left a very pleasant scent behind!
