For tougher sur­faces in the bath­room, choose hardy tea tree ( Me­laleuca al­terni­fo­lia) and clar­i­fy­ing eu­ca­lyp­tus ( Eu­ca­lyp­tus glob­u­lus) es­sen­tial oils. Shake a few drops of each into the toi­let bowl sev­eral times a week to dis­in­fect and de­odor­ize. Mixed with white vine­gar, these oils help fight fun­gus and bac­te­ria, and help pre­vent mildew growth in the tub and shower. Sci­en­tific stud­ies re­port that the an­tibac­te­rial and an­ti­fun­gal prop­er­ties of tea tree and eu­ca­lyp­tus are ef­fec­tive in stop­ping the spread of in­fluenza, pneu­mo­nia, and staph germs.

1 cup white vine­gar

4 tsp. fra­grance- free dish soap

10 drops tea tree es­sen­tial oil

10 drops eu­ca­lyp­tus es­sen­tial oil

In an 8- oz. spray bot­tle, mix in­gre­di­ents and shake well to blend. Spray gen­er­ously on tile, sinks, tub, shower, and bath­room sur­faces. Al­low the cleanser to sit for sev­eral min­utes, then wipe with a clean cloth. Rinse with hot water.
