All Natural Floor Cleaner #DIY


Disclosure:  This post is sponsored by O-Cedar and the EasyWring Spin Mop.


Cleaning floors is one of my least favorite chores to do - maybe because it seems like it is a never-ending chore. Recently, I introduced you to my new favorite cleaning item in my cleaning closet - the EasyWring Spin Mop & Bucket System from O-Cedar. Amazing does not cut it. Now, back to my dislike of floor cleaning. Another reason I never want to mop our floors is I am not a fan of putting chemicals on the space that our kids play. Well, a 2 year old and 5 year old's space to play is the floor...we need a chemical-free, all-natural floor cleaning option.

After some research and experience using my EasyWring Spin Mop I have come up with my own DIY All-Natural Floor Cleaner that gives me one less excuse for not wanting to mop our floors. This super easy formula not only cleans the floors well, but it has a fresh scent and is free of chemicals!

Directions:

1.  Find a container to mix the floor cleaner in.  I usually make 2 batches at a time.  The materials listed create ONE batch.  Double or triple for larger spaces. 

2.  Combine water and vinegar in the container - mix/stir well.  

3.  Add 15 drops lemon essential oil into water/vinegar mixture.  Stir well. 

4.  Pour all natural floor cleaner into the EasyWring Spin Mop bucket and you are now ready to clean those well loved floors chemical free!

While the mixture doesn't seem like a lot of cleaner you will be surprised how far it goes.  Using the EasyWring Spin Mop & Bucket System from O-Cedar keeps me from wasting my cleaner.  No excess when cleaning all those floors.  When I started using this all natural cleaner, I got so many compliments from visitors on how fresh our home smelled.  I call that a successful floor cleaner!

  9. I love to try natural cleaning products so I'm going to use your tips. Thanks for sharing the O-Cedar EasyWring Spin Mop & Bucket System. I have to mop all the time between the kids and the kitten and whatever else critters the kids bring in. I don't have carpet so it's all mopping for me.
