Questions for the Editor

Can peppermint oil be used for cleaning? Yes! Like tea tree oil, peppermint oil has natural disinfectant properties. It can be a great addition to natural cleaning products.

Can you mix vinegar and peppermint oil? Yes. For a great natural household cleaner, mix equal parts white vinegar and distilled water in an 8 oz. spray bottle. Add 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil and enjoy! Use on hard, nonporous surfaces like countertops, door handles, and more. 

Important! Use caution with granite or natural stone countertops! Peppermint oil and other types of natural cleaners, especially vinegar, can damage natural stone.

I like this idea. I like sanitizing surface in my home all year round, but I hate the waste of anti-bac wipes, and the harshness of chemical sprays. This is a perfect solution.

I love peppermint, and I love this idea. We'll have to give it a go.

What a great DIY cleaner for winter! Your home will be clean and smell like peppermint!
