Floor wash

 

2 cups distilled water

1 cup liquid Castile soap (or a even lemon-scented dish soap will do)

½ cup Four Thieves’ vinegar (or apple cider vinegar with the ‘mother’)

½ cup lemon juice

½ cup Florida water

9 drops of tea tree oil

7 drops of lavender oil (if you have it or can get it)

½ cup kosher or sea salt

½ cup Himalayan pink salt (or another ½ cup of kosher or sea salt.

1 pinch of saltpeter for extra power

½ cup Borax (or omit if you prefer)

¼ cup Hyssop herb

¼ cup angelica root powder

¼ cup pine needles

9 strands of lemongrass

9 broom straws (from a straw broom)

 

Place all in a jar, shake to mix.

Put about a cup of mixture in your wash bucket with some hot water.

Wash floors from the back of the house to the front, ending with the front doorstep, or even the front porch and steps. Walk away from your house and dump bucket out.

This wash can also be used on surfaces, or placed in a spray bottle and used as a room spray.

Oh, thanks for sharing! I may have to try this soon. I’m a little behind on wiping up muddy dog prints in the hallway, and having some on hand sounds like a good idea. Now to get to the pine trees currently under a couple feet of snow…

I have wanted to try this for ages! Thanks for a simple sounding recipe :) Sol, how is the best way to store? Is it fine in the cupboard, or does it need refridgeration?

It will keep just fine in a cupboard or cool place away from the sun. Just give it a shake when you need to use some.
