Herbal Cleaning Vinegars

  • 1 min read

Vinegar is a cheap and safe way to clean surfaces around your home. It is free of toxic chemicals that many of the store-bought cleaners contain. Vinegar kills 99% of bacteria, 82% of moulds, and 80% of viruses, and when you add some herbs, spices or essential oils the effect is multiplied. So, today I’m going to show you how to make one of my favourite Herbal Cleaning Vinegars - Rosemary & Lemon Peel Cleaner!

See the full recipe below. Alternatively, to check out the video and bonus Pennyroyal & Peppermint Floorwash recipe, watch our latest YouTube here to get all the details.

Here’s some bonus info:

  • Most kitchen herbs can be used in a vinegar cleansing mix. Have a look in your garden for herbs and plants that can be used.
  • The following herbs contain antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties: Basil, thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano, marjoram, lavender, mint, lemongrass, eucalyptus, tea tree and lemon myrtle. 
  • Don’t forget to look in your spice rack as well for cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, aniseed, star anise, fennel and pepper.
  • Having a salad for lunch? Why not use your rosemary and lemon peel cleaner in your salad dressing! mix 1 tbsp of it to 3 tbsp olive oil and you have a yummy salad dressing. You can’t do that with a store bought cleaner! This should only be done with herbs that can be ingested. For example its fine with the Rosemary & Lemon Peel cleaner, but its not recommended that Pennyroyal be ingested.
