From the blogger: "This recipe is so very simple! You can use this spray on absolutely everything, including butcher block countertops. It leaves a pleasant and interesting smell behind, thanks to the essential oils. It is great for tables because it leaves a slight sheen. It also gets the grime off of back splash with little to no elbow grease. You can even use it to clean out your microwave; it will take care of it with just a couple of sprays and some good wiping. Make sure to give it a little shake before you use it so that the oils get dispersed throughout before spraying."

Just lately I have been using vinegar on just about everything, because it just cleans better! I even use it in my carpet cleaner! I am excited to try this because sometimes when you clean it just does not smell clean, you know? I love the orange scent and am going to get this set up for the next time the cleaning bug hits me!

This DIY All Purpose Surface Spray Recipe is one of my all time go to cleaners. I love the fact that the natural oils not only smell great, they clean and the Lemongrass is a good disinfectant. This cleaner is good for everything including hardwood floors. It's kid and pet friendly. I have also added 2 Tbsp. of rubbing alcohol to the mix when using on the wood floors to help speed up the drying time. Thank you so much for sharing this free DIY recipe.

This has to be a winner. I use Vinegar for most of my cleaning and I just love products containing Orange Oil. Not only do they smell wonderful, but I find Orange Oil really seems to cut through grease. As a professional cleaner for many years, I was always relieved when I discovered clients who were happy for me to use natural products for cleaning. Daily use of commercial cleansers can cause all sorts of allergies - rashes and bronchial problems.
