Be careful w scented oils in the home especially if you have pets .... even Tea Tree ! Whether you spray or heat scented oils ... My cleaning ladies tried a very diluted home made mix they swore was fab for bath and kitchen cleaning and sanitizing not long ago and was Not good for my allergies and scent sensitivity ( even tho it smelled Great ! ) Back to plain vinegar and baking soda for my house . Our grocery has vinegar for salads but also “White Cleaning Vinegar” by the gallon and it is higher acidity . Note about scents: I am 70 and the old time Pine Sol or Ivory or Murphy Oil or Simple Green are just fine. I try to buy and use unscented everything. Dermatologist in early 80’s is the one that taught me that for middle age acne and Snoring ! Scented detergent and scented fabric softener in sheets and pillows w were the culprits !
