DIY Essential Oil Bathroom Cleaner Recipe
Keep your bathroom fresh and clean with natural non toxic ingredients. There is a list below to help you pick biodegradable ingredients to make your own cleaning products.
Ingredients you need:

- Distilled or mineral water (2 cups)
- Tea tree oil essential oil (5 drops)
- Lemon essential oil (15 drops)
How to make it:
Mix the Castile soap with the essential oils and stir well.
In another container pour the water and add the baking soda. Remove again.
Finally add the Castile soap with the essential oils.
Transfer to a spray bottle and shake well before each use.
How to use it:
It is a gentle bathroom cleaner and can be used on any surface in a daily basis.
I made a similar cleaning recipe I saw online with Castile soap and white vinegar and it was a disaster. I didn’t understand why and went looking for answers. This is what I found:
In great part it’s due to the fact that vinegar is an acid and the Castile soap is a base. They will directly react with each other and cancel each other out. So, instead of getting the best of both (the scum cutting ability of the vinegar and the dirt transporting ability of the soap), you’ll be getting the worst of something entirely new. The vinegar “unsaponifies” the soap, by which I mean that the vinegar takes the soap and reduces it back out to its original oils. So you end up with an oily, curdled, whitish mess. And this would be all over whatever it was you were trying to clean – your laundry or counters or dishes or whatever.Source
So this is why you shouldn’t mix Castile soap with vinegar even if you read it online. We shouldn’t believe everything we read. Trust me on this!
Tip – Sometimes the nozzle gets clogged and it stops spraying. If this happens to you take the sprayer and place it in vinegar and water for few minutes. Try again and if still not working take the nozzle out and use a toothpick or needle to unclog it.
