There are about 5-10 pounds of chemicals in the household cleaning products, all of which pose serious health risks, according to experts. You should use tea tree oil and clean the home in a completely safe way.
Tea tree oil is derived from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree in Australia and has been commonly used by the Aboriginals as an anti-bacterial agent, to treat muscle pain, etc.
This oil has powerful antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, and antifungal properties, so here are 5 ways in which you can use this beneficial oil:
You should mix 3-4 drops of tea tree oil with a tablespoon of borax and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. After that pour the mixture into a 12-ounce spray bottle, add water, and use it as a highly effective all-purpose cleaner.
Disinfect Your Dishes
Add 1-2 drops of this oil to the soap dispenser in your dishwasher before you add soap to clean and disinfect the dishes.
In case ants often visit your home, find the place where they enter it, and pour a few drops of tea tree oil to deter them and keep them at bay. In order to deter cockroaches, mix it with some water and wipe down the cupboards.
Destroy Germs on Your Clothes
You should add a few drops of the oil to each load of laundry to disinfect the clothes, and leave a pleasant and fresh scent behind.
In case someone of your family has recently been ill, you should add it to the warm mist vaporizer to cleanse the air or add 6-8 drops to the laundry when washing the linens.
Next time when you will clean the house, forget about the expensive commercial household cleaners, and use tea tree oil instead!
