Household Cleaning Recipes

The Mountain Rose Blog has recipes for surface cleaners, floor mop solutions, furniture polish, and a carpet deodorizer using safe products like distilled white vinegar, baking soda and essential oils.  I'm going to try the surface cleaner for the boat.  It's just distilled water, white vinegar and oils of lavender, tea tree and lemon.  Here's a list of oils that have anti-microbial properties:
Basil, Bay, Bergamot, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clary Sage, Clove, Eucalyptus, Fir, Ginger, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Myrrh, Nutmeg, Orange, Oregano, Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine, Rose Geranium, Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Spearmint, Spruce, Tea Tree, and Thyme.
