Since I have been loving my homemade counter top spray I decided I would look for another home remedy for my dirty floors. (I had tried the spray on the floor but the soap component made it kind of sticky.)
I looked online for a few different recipes but it seemed that I was missing at least one ingredient (usually ammonia.) I saw one recipe (if you could call it that) that suggested adding 1/2 cup vinegar to 1 gallon of water and using that and that alone to clean the floor.
Truthfully, I've heard of this before. I've always hesitated because once when I used vinegar to kill the weeds growing up between the bricks in my patio my husband said he felt like he was sitting in a salad bowl later that day. I've thought it might smell even worse in an enclosed space. I decided to add a few drops of essential oil. It worked GREAT! The tile floor in the bathroom is really clean, does not smell like a salad bowl and I didn't have to buy a single thing that I didn't already have to clean the floors. I'll be trying it on the kitchen tomorrow.
