DIY Non-Toxic Potty Cleaning Spray

What goes in must come out. So while this isn't food it is a useful recipe. It uses mostly ingredients that you will have on hand in your kitchen and you can whip up while you're in there anyway. If you're like me and are uncomfortable using toxic cleaners around your munchkins, this cleaner works great and you don't need to worry about what you are exposing yourself and your family to. This spray cleans, disinfects, and smells good while doing it. This also isn't a job for your regular all-purpose cleaner since something acidic works better based messes. Just dump out the dump, rinse with hot water, spray, wipe and rinse again.

DIY Non-Toxic Potty Cleaning Spray

- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 tsp liquid dish detergent
- 1/2 tsp lemon essential oil
- 1 1/2 cups warm water

Grab an empty spray bottle from your recycling (or buy one for the purpose). Measure out your ingredients in a liquid measuring cup and carefully pour in spray bottle, or alternatively, use a funnel. Shake before using.

  1. Where do you get the essential oil? Thanks for the recipe!

  2. You can get essential oils at health food stores, nutrition/vitamin stores, at large well-stocked grocery stores (usually in the natural care products/food section) or also from online retailers.
    They are incredibly useful and each have different properties. Lemon, for instance, is antiseptic, antibacterial and deodorizing. You can use them in making personal care products, cleaning products, and I also like add a few drops to a stone oil burner to make the whole place smell great.
    Good luck in the search!
