Note:  I think I would use Natural Lavender Essential Oil
These simple-to-make kitchen wipes are the perfect example of a great all-natural alternative cleaning product!  #1) They are REUSABLE, #2) they’re RECYCLED, and #3) they’re completely CHEMICAL-FREE.

Take an old t-shirt (or PJ’s, or whatever) that is bound for the donation bin, and cut it up into “rag-size” cloths.

Pour 1 cup warm water, 1/8 cup (or 1 ounce) liquid castile soap, and 5 – 10 drops of your favorite essential oil into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

With its refreshing minty scent and powerful antibacterial properties, peppermint essential oil is a perfect complement to many homemade cleaning products.

Place the rags into the jar with the liquid. (I think I ended up with about 8 or 10 rags.)

Put the top on the jar (or whatever lidded container you prefer) and turn upside down a few times until all the rags are soaked.
After being used, the cloths can be washed and returned to the jar for RE-use over and over again.
