As we move onwards and upwards through our series of articles on Cleaning House With Essential Oils, we now move on to the office. Because of the nature of electronics, dust is attracted to monitors and keyboards. Also, most people will eat at their desks so food gets into the keyboard and all over the desk. We have in here some ways and means to use essential oils to clean your office to get rid of dirt, dust, and crumbs so you can have a clean, fresh place to work.
(This list will be the same on each of the cleaning house articles)
Lemon, Lime, Orange, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Pine, Spruce, Cypress, Thyme, Palmarosa, Citronella, Wintergreen, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Spearmint, Oregano, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Sage, Petitgrain bigarade, Vetiver, Coriander, Juniper Berry
You can find other recipes for cleaning walls, windows, and floors in some of the other articles in the Cleaning House series.
Combine all ingredients in a small spray bottle and shake well before every use. Spray lightly onto a cleaning cloth and wipe surfaces until dry. Good for monitors, glass surfaces of printers, etc.
Combine all ingredients in a plastic spray bottle and shake well before every use. Spray directly onto a dry cloth and wipe surfaces clean.
Cut the cloth into small squares or rectangles and stack them on top of each other (10 is a good number). Pour the water, vinegar, and essential oils into a heavy-duty plastic bag with zipper closure. Mix well then place cloth pieces into bag and close it again, pressing down to squeeze out excess air. Use these wipes for quick cleanups, making sure to squeeze out the excess liquid from each wipe first. (Not recommended for unsealed wood desks.) Can wash cloths and reuse.
Combine all ingredients in a 4 ounce, fine mist, plastic spray bottle. Shake well before every use. Spray in all directions into air of room. Great to use in conference rooms, and in your office when the air gets musty. Can refill the water 3-4 times before refilling oils.
Blend all ingredients in a small bowl or cup. Moisten a soft cloth with this solution and clean the telephone receiver. Use a second cloth to dry it off.
