    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup borax
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • 2 -3 drops liquid soap (natural)
    • 1 gallon water
    • 3 -5 drops essential oils (any kind you like for a nicer scent)


    1. 1
      Pour Borax, Vinegar & soap into a bucket. Add water & essential oil (optional). Clean your floor.
    2. 2
      Washing Soda can be used instead of borax (might streak on certain types of flooring).
    3. 3
      Essential oil is optional for a nicer scent, but is not necessary as you won't smell it once the floor dries.
    4. 4
      Once the floor dries, you will NOT smell the vinegar.
    5. 5
      Home soap, Dr. Bronner's or any other natural liquid soap can be used.

      This worked pretty well. I did not have the oil drops, but will try next time. I used Dawn antibacterial soap. Thanks for an inexpensive cleaner.

      This works great - I've been using it for about a year now and will never go back to other cleaners or different recipes. Instead of using essential oils I buy Dr. Bronners soap, usually mint and it takes care of the essential oil quotient for me. My 4 year old daughter can even help me clean without fear of red eyes from the chemicals.
