Essential Oil Sink Cleanser

Found this recipe on a favorite blog Stone Gable where she shares
8 Smart Things You Should Do Each Night Before Going to Bed.  
A lover of lists, this made me stop and actually read.
I substitute meditation for the praying point but I believe they are the same
as both connect you to the Universe, God, Self. 

Fourth one:  CLEAN YOUR SINK
She shares a recipe using organic ingredients which include Essential Oils!
I have recently start diffusing and using chemical-free cleansers
so this one really popped off the screen for me.
I have used store brands for years and always seem to inhale some of the powder
and think, what did I just breathe in?
Bleach? 
Nasty dry chemicals?
I can't even tell what's in there as they don't list contents.
They do tell you ...
Caution:
Keep out of the reach of children and pets
Moderately irritating to eyes, skin, and mucous membranes
Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing
In case of accidental contact...
Jeesh!
Step away from the Comet/Ajax/Bon Ami!

I have a stainless steel sink which I believe is original to the house,
putting it at 43 years old since it was built in 1973! 
I graduated high school that year!   
But who's counting?
Being stainless, I don't need bleach to get out those nasty stains
which makes this an even better option.

This one is so simple...

ORAGNIC SINK CLEANSER


1 cup baking soda
5 drops Young Living Lemon oil
5 drops Young Living Purification oil
Mason jar
Plastic Lid
Add baking soda and oils to jar.
Instead of putting the metal lid on, take a plastic lid from any container,
I used the lid from my Trader Joe's coffee can. 
Cut to size of lid and poke 4-5 holes in the top.
Secure lid under the rim and cover with dish towel.
Shake to mix.

This, my friends, is my nasty sink. 
Greasy, food globs and just stinky.
Rinse with a little water to remove loose dirt.
Shake on the sink cleaner scrub.
Scrub with a little dish soap or Castile soap with a dish brush.
Only a bit of elbow grease needed.
Count it as arm work.
Rinse.
Wipe down with a soft dish towel

Et Voila!
The sink smells divine!
The kitchen smells divine!
I am divine!

If you want to double down on the freshness thing, run a slice of citrus in the disposal before scrubbing and that will take the odor down the drain.

I do not profess this will change your life but it will make you feel better
about becoming chemical free.

thanks for stopping by moonlight lane

  1. Holly I did not know you had a blog! Thank you so much for the shout out on Vicki Archer's blog. I really appreciate your support. I am going to try this! I have really been experimenting with natural cleansing products that you can make yourself. I do a homemade window cleaner that is the best! I will put it on the blog!
