Smells Fresh & Lemony in Here!

Ahhhhh.... I love the smell of fresh air and tangy lemons in the morning!

Do I detect a hint of lavendar, too?

Now, if I could just find my shoes... I know they're buried in here somewhere.... :LOL

This is a great idea! Thanks!!!

Ya know I must admit... my favorite cleaning smell is....

Murphy's Oil Soap!

I don't know what's in it, but it smells sooooo good!

Second place is anything lemon

Third place would be... (I know this is bad stuff) Pine-Sol!

Bippity~ you must try Dr. Bonner's Peppermint cleaner. You get a huge bottle that you dilute, it will last you a year, and smells divine

Next, I like vinegar! Makes me feel like a kid dyeing Easter eggs :LOL

Actually, I've been tempted to buy some Dr. Bonner's! I guess I HAVE to now, huh?! I love the smell of peppermint, too! I bet it would be good!

Ya know... I actually ran into somebody over the holidays that HATES peppermint. I thought that was so unusual... never knew anybody didn't like peppermint... ?

I love the smell of peppermint and lavender when I'm cleaning. Calming and energizing at the same time!

Dr. Bronner's has a Sal-Suds that has pine oil in it. Smells the same as Pine-Sol but with much less oil so no one can get sick off of it. Cleans great and you can dillute it. This is what I use in my carpet cleaner instead of all those nasty cleaners they sell especially for that purpose.

OK - How much do you use? Do you dilute it? I'm currently using the Bissel cleaner but I really want to use something better than that - I'm doing way too many rinses to try to make sure it's all gone.

Anything mint makes me gag! My dh had to get rid of all of his mint gum when we started dating. The smell of the dentist make me vomit (I get bubble gum flavored toothpaste). Any mint lotions make my skin burn.

Yes Mom4Tot. I am on oddball!

Personally, I love the lavendar Dr. B's. It works great on my floors!

Hi Averysmom :LOL I love anything mint...spearmint and peppermint teas, mint candy, mint chocolate, the list goes on and on!

I haven't tried the lavendar yet, I would love that, too. I can't seem to use up all the peppermint

You kow what I really love about using it....is not having to go down the cleaning aisle. It is so freeing!

I use a good squirt (maybe a tablespoon) but it's a small cleaner.
