Tea-tree oil is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal, even fighting off MRSA, making it a natural option to use when cleaning your space. And this spray is great to use on toys, floors, and countertops for a quick clean. Make sure to follow up monthly with a deep sanitizing clean and toss child and dog toys in the dishwasher to really kill any lingering bacteria.
When kids and pets are around, it's smart to highly dilute the essential oil, because if used at full potency, it's poisonous when ingested. Simply add 10 drops of tea-tree essential oil to four cups of water, and shake, making this cleaner safe to use. After spraying, give toys a quick wipe, and they're ready for more play.
