DIY Natural Lavender & Lime Drain Cleaner
2 cups of White Vinegar
1 medium Lemon
1 tablespoon of Baking Soda
2-3 sprigs of fresh or dried Lavender OR 3-4 drops of lavender oil
The amount created by the recipe above is enough to clean one sink. If you want to try this recipe on multiple sinks/drains in your home, you can always double or triple the recipe as needed.
1. Begin by squeezing the juice from one lemon into a bowl. You can then take a zester and remove a few teaspoons worth of zest from the peel. If you don’t feel like taking the time to zest, you can always toss a few peels into a food processor and chop them until a thick paste is formed.
2. Add the lemon juice and zest to the 2 cups of white vinegar. Mix well. Follow up by adding the tablespoon of baking soda.
3. Add the springs of lavender to soak in the mixture or pour in your drops of oil. Allow the mixture to rest for an hour so the oils have time to permeate the liquid. You will notice some settling of the zest, this is perfectly normal.
When you are ready to use your Lavender & Lemon Drain Cleaner, simply pour the contents down the drain of choice. The vinegar will cut away at grease and grime while the baking soda absorbs odors. The lemon will also help cut away at debris while leaving a fresh scent combined with the lavender.
Say goodbye to smelly sinks. Give this easy recipe a try!
