Eucalyptus Multi Purpose Spray

I am currently obsessed with Eucalyptus oil for cleaning! I use it to clean/deoderise the toilets, I add a capful with my clothes in the washing machine, cleaning the boys bath, and I looove using it with hot water to mop the floors! I love the smell and everything feels squeaky clean! So I thought I’d make up a multi purpose spray for the kitchen, bathroom and to clean up after two messy toddlers!!Β 

I bought the spray bottle for $2 at the Reject Shop and have seen them at dollar shops, and Coles/Woolworths etc. Ends up so much cheaper than buying a multi purpose spray, and I don’t freak out about inhaling it like I do with all the chemical based sprays! In fact, it’s fantastic for the sinuses!!! πŸ˜‰
