Green cleaning products use natural, plant-based ingredients like baking soda, essential oils, vinegar, castile soap, or hydrogen peroxide. They are simple, eco-friendly products for your home that are non-toxic for both your family and the environment. Green cleaning practices also save me money, and I love knowing that they are healthy for my whole family. #greencleaningproducts #ecofriendly #essentialoils #cleaning #naturalliving www.intentionalfamilylife.com

  1. I hadn’t thought of using essential oils on a cotton ball to keep the stink out of my shoes. My tennis shoes are usually good, but boy do my flats get ripe. I’ve tried using the special powders in them but they never seem to work. I’ll definitely have to try the cotton ball trick.

  2. Wow! I can’t believe you just use essential oils to keep your house clean. I also haven’t thought about using oils with cotton balls into the shoe to keep the smell away. I didn’t realize tea tree oil can also help eliminate or prevent mold. Thank you for the tips!

  3. Essential oils? Hmmm, I use bleach and more bleach but I know those chemicals are not good I may switch over and try this. My kids bathrooms are the worse my son has his own bathroom and I have made him start to clean.

  4. I know that essential oils are a really big deal right now. I used to dampen a cotton ball with lavender oil and place them around the house behind furniture for a nice fragrance. My youngest daughter loves to use tea tree oil for various things, it’s pretty strong though so you have to really like it to use it.

  5. That’s pretty amazing. I love essential oils in a diffuser or a bath, but I’ve never thought of cleaning with them before. I guess there really isn’t anything you can’t do with essential oils!

  6. I just bookmarked this page so I can look at the other posts on essential oils, thank you!
    I love the idea of using less toxic cleaners, but do they disinfect the same way as cleaners?
    Great tips here, I will definitely be back!!

    1. I’m so glad you liked the suggestions! Many of the essential oils actually disinfect better than toxic cleaners! I’d love for you to get back to me and let me know what you enjoyed using!

  7. This is a great article, I’m pinning it for later. I have been looking for ways to detox my home from all these toxic chemicals. You know what though? How much do we REALLY need to clean? I mean, yes, if there’s germs going around and someone’s sick, you kick it up a notch. But in general, do we really need to be cleaning every. single. day? I don’t know, I usually just pass a wet cloth every day and once a week or so disinfect (depending on the room obv). I will definitely gives the essential oils a try. I have a whole bunch that have rarely been used!

  8. What an informative post. I have somehow gotten pantry moths. I kill everyone we find, and there are a lot less–maybe 1 a day. But we didn’t want to spray that area with insecticides. I’ll have to try the lavendar on the cottonball trick. I have some, so it will be easy :).

    1. Pantry moths are THE WORST! I got them twice them last year – I wish I’d had my oils then! Good luck – I’d love for you to let me know how it goes!

  9. I’m a huge fan of essential oils. I just recently started using them in our home. I love the tip about smell shoes. My son has smelly feet (I’m sure most boys do lol). Thanks for sharing all these tips.

  10. such great tips-we use oils all the time, but haven’t branched out much into using them for cleaning yet. We just ran out of floor cleaner so I guess now is the time to start!

  11. I’ve never thought of using essential oils for cleaning before but now I want to start. I love the sound of lemon essential oil because I really like the scent of lemon around my home. I need to try these things.

    1. There are so many amazing things you can do with essential oils to achieve and maintain vibrant health as well as to rid your home of toxins in cleaners, beauty products and so much more!

  12. What a terrific post! I cannot stand chemicals in our house since my daughter was born. I am always looking for more natural products but never feel totally happy. I cannot wait to try this!
