I currently use SquirtEco for most cleaning jobs and I really like it butI am just wondered if anyone has a "recipe" to make something similar myself?

Have just made a vinegar & water mix with a drop of lavender oil to make it smell nicer. Put it in a empty squirt eco bottle and relabelled it. Seems to work just as well as squirt eco on the kitchen surfaces.

I don't have a recipe or anything, but the method lavender all purpose cleaning spray is brilliant.

I have just started using the Method all purpose spray, it is great and smells lovely.

I also mix a few drops of tea tree oil in water, in a spray bottle and use it on things like mildew ( our house is really damp! ) and as an antibacterial spray.

Good idea, I might add some tea tree oil too.

ditto vinegar and water with tea tree.

dump bicarb over things like baked on hob stains/inside of ovens, plop on ome vinegar, watch it fizz and wipe away...grin

liquid soap nuts with a few drops of a blend of essential oils called 'anti bacterial' from Abbey Botanicals.

I do 50/50 vinegar/water plus about 10 drops of essential oil, plus one small squirt of ecover dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle. works great. I use cinnamon and orange oil in the kitchen, but for bathrooms I tend to go with more antisceptic tea tree or peppermint.

Also like Nobless, scrub hob with bicarb, then spray with my vinegar spray to make it shine.
