It’s that time of year when the clouds begin to part, and I get spring fever and the itch to clean everything! Spring is also when the sun starts to come out more, and I notice all of the neglected nook and crannies that I haven’t given the adequate attention since last spring. Here are the six parts of my house that I usually do not think about but can get the dirtiest. All of these locations can be cleaned with a mixture of lemon oil, vinegar, and water.
Appliances—From dust to greasy food spills, machines collect more dirt than you might think. A simple solution of Lemon oil, water, and vinegar will help you clean toasters, refrigerators, mixers, and more.
Ceilings and walls-Two of the most abundant surfaces in our homes and yet we ignore them throughout the year. Use your vacuum’s dust attachment to remove dust then clean greasy fingerprints and scuffs.
Garbage disposal—If you’ve been smelling something funky coming from your sink, it might be time to clean the garbage disposal.
Ceiling Fan—Fan blades collect dust at turbo speeds and cling to them for as long as you let them. To avoid choking on dust bunnies while cleaning your ceiling fans, spray the inside of an old pillowcase with a Lemon/water mixture and loop the fabric around each blade.
Trash Cans—Regularly cleaning out trash cans can eliminate odor. For indoor trash cans, spray the inside and outside of each receptacle with a mixture of water, Lemon oil, and vinegar, then scrub with a sponge.
Air Vents—One of the most overlooked areas to keep clean in your home is the air you breathe! Clean vents with a sponge dipped in warm water, vinegar, and Lemon oil to help eliminate allergens and dust from filling the air around you.
Lemon oil acts as a potent cleaning agent, and the possibilities are truly endless! For the best doTERRA cleaning DIYs for other parts of your home click HERE.
