After the kids and I had the flu for about a week earlier last month, I needed to get the bathroom floors cleaned. I was not feeling up to going to store for more supplies. (See how I made my own homemade toilet bowl cleaner.) I needed something to clean the floors so I made my own.

This homemade mopping solution was easy to fix up and left me feeling much better. The scent is very uplifting and I ended up getting a lot of stuff done around the house that day. The best part of this is that is an air dry recipe. You do not need to rinse your floor to clean up any residue.
How To Make Your Own Mopping Solution
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Bucket of warm water
- 1/4 cup of white vinegar
- 10-15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil – Lemon cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces.
After filling up your bucket with warm water, add your vinegar and lemon essential oil. Use your mop to stir the solution and start mopping your floors.
Don’t worry about the vinegar smell being overpowering, the lemon will take care of that. You will not smell the vinegar at all. I will warn you again, the pleasant lemon smell may result in you wanting to get more done on your to-do list.
