Sometimes finding a good is difficult. I wanted to find a good disinfecting cleaner that was non toxic in case my dog got into it. After searching around I found this great recipe for a cleaner that I had to try out.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients
The ingredients are simple
- white vinegar
- essential oil (can be found in the soap making section of a craft store)
Step 2: Mix Together Water and Vinegar
Start by mixing together 1 part water and 1 part vinegar.
I made 2 cups of cleaner so I put in 1 cup of water and mixed it with 1 cup of vinegar
Step 3: Add the Essential Oil
Now add about 10 to 15 drops of essential oil to your mixture. The amount of oil you put in depends on how strong you want your mixture to be. You want enough so it covers up the vinegar smell without overpowering the whole cleaner.
Remember essential oil is very concentrated. A little extra can cause a big change.
Be sure to mix everything up well
Step 4: Shake
Put the lid on the jar and shake to mix all the ingredients up
Step 5: Clean!
Now all you have left is to use your cleaner for its intended purpose. To clean and disinfect any areas. I've currently been using the cleaner in my kitchen and it has been working great! It is easy to use, and super cheap to make. Which just makes the cleaner even better!!
