  • Kitchen and bathroom cleaner (when diluted with water and combined with a few drops of lavender or lemon to add some antibacterial action)
  • Floor cleaner (when diluted with water)
  • Cleaning the inside of the fridge to prevent mildrew

Baking Soda

Baking soda can be a great ingredient for cleaning. Some of its uses include:

  • Cleaning the bathroom (in combination with peppermint oil)
