DIY Degreaser Spray With Essential Oil
I made this video for a DIY degreaser spray for my Natural Living & Survival blog but since the recipe uses essential oils I felt it might be of interest to readers of this blog as well.
This DIY degreaser spray uses all natural ingredients and it has a mild scouring action as well as having the grease cutting action using a mild detergent.
- 2 Tbsp Baking Soda
- 2 Tbsp Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (or Dr. Bronner’s Sals Suds)
- 1 Cup Distilled Water
- 25 drops Lemon Essential Oil (Buy it here)
Place all the ingredients into a spray bottle and shake to mix well. Spray on greasy mess to easily wipe it up with a microfiber cloth. (I recommend purchasing microfiber cloths to get away from using paper towels you just throw away. Microfiber cloths will save you tons of money and help the environment.)
The essential oil in this recipe is more for the fragrance than for cleaning the grease. But it will give your kitchen a clean fresh natural citrus scent. This scent is very uplifting and it smells completely different (and in my opinion much better) than artificial lemon scents in the chemical cleaners you use now.
The other benefit for the environment is that all the ingredients are totally biodegradable so they are safe for the environment.
They are safe to use around children and pets too. This is a concern with chemical degreasers you may be currently using. The chemicals in those products may be harmful if a small child were to ingest them.
If you want an effective and easy to make degreaser for your kitchen you should try out this easy DIY degreaser spray. The baking soda adds a mild scouring action while the Dawn dishwashing liquid adds the grease cutting power.
