I use this to clean surface areas. Be careful on natural woods, and avoid on natural stone (like marble).
This is a good replacement for bleach. It can white whites in the laundry.
Baking soda has helps with many cleaning and personal care needs. With laundry, I add it to the washing machine for extra cleaning and deodorizing. In the refrigerator, it helps minimize odors. And with baths, it helps detox.
I use essential oils for cleaning, healing, and self care. Lemon oil and fractionated coconut oil are great for cleaning / polishing / moisturizing wood surfaces. A drop of lemon oil in warm water is great first thing in the morning. Lavender and peppermint oils are also great for cleaning, and for soothing mosquito bites. Lavender soothes various skin issues. I also add peppermint oil into smoothies.

This has replaced my iron and has been a convenient way to quickly freshen clothes.
These are great for cleaning solutions that incorporate pure essential oils, which should be protected from sunlight.
