Cleaning with Essential Oils in the Kitchen Walls and Ceilings with Lemon Essential Oil
When washing walls and ceilings make sure you dust before washing. Change your cloth often especially when it gets dirty. Be mindful cobwebs can be sticky and stain surfaces. In my kitchen there is often greasy residue from cooking. A film is often presented on my ceiling and walls.
What I have found to be helpful in removing and freshen up my walls is using a degreaser. Lemon Essential Oils is the perfect degreaser and it smells fresh.
In a bucket fill will warm water and a half cup of vinegar. Next, add twenty five drops of lemon essential oil and with a sponge or rag wipe the ceiling and walls. Start from the top and work your way down!
Cleaning with Essential Oils in the Kitchen Fixtures and Outlets
Use a damp cloth to clean ceiling fans and fixtures. Use a fresh bucket of warm water, vinegar and lemon essential oil to clean fixtures and ceiling fans. When cleaning your fixtures make sure they are not hot when losing screws and wiping down. I clean all the globes, lens or plastic parts that are removable in warm water and then dry before assembling.
Make sure fans, light fixtures, etc. are turned off when you clean them.
Cleaning Kitchen Windows with Essential Oils
A clean window welcomes a fresh breeze! A cloudy day is best to clean your windows. I like to clean my windows once in the spring and then before the cold breaks through the air.
Start by cleaning windows by vacuuming any debris. Use a razor blade for stubborn residue on windows. If you cannot get in the cracks of your windows I like to use a Q-Tip dipped in alcohol to clean crervices, Also, clean the window with vertical strokes on one side and horizontal on the other side.
