Lemon Essential Oils
Lemon Essential Oil (citrus limon) is a natural disinfectant and a great, non-toxic alternative to chemical-laden household cleaners. Dilute Lemon Essential Oil in a spray bottle of water to clean and disinfect all household surfaces, or dilute a few drops in olive oil and use on a cloth to polish furniture. A cloth soaked in Lemon Essential Oil can be used to shine tarnished silver or to preserve leather clothing or furniture. Adding a few drops of oil to the washing machine can get rid of the musty smell and help keep laundry fresh.
