Eucalyptus oil a natural floor cleaner
The best floor cleaner around, a teaspoon of Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus oil and warm water. Great for any floors, no streaks, degreaser, keeps away insects, kills bacteria and smells so fresh and clean, Clean the natural way it’s better for the environment and yourself.
There are many great benefits when it comes to cleaning naturally. Not only does it save money, but you also know exactly what you are using. I think people these days are looking for natural cleaning products in their homes. Our environment is filled with toxins and one of the biggest offenders is commercial household cleaners, they can cause allergies, rashes and can be very expensive. I personally became allergic to perfumes, preservatives and certain chemicals about 15 years ago, I get rashes from many things so have to be very careful. This is when we started producing our own personal care natural product range.
At Emu Ridge we like to clean naturally and keep as many toxins as possible out of our home and workplace. Cleaning your floor with our Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus oil and water is completely non toxic so you feel safe using it around your children, pets and yourselves! Its also safer for the septic, its a 100% pure essential oil, cruelty fee and produced in Australia!
WHAT WE DO: Fill the mop bucket with about 1/4 full of warm water. Add a teaspoon of Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus oil and mop away, its great for wooden, slate, tiles and lino!
I have been told that you an also add 1/4 of a cup of vinegar as well but we just use the above recipe!
Another tip, fill a separate plastic mop bucket with hot water. This bucket can be used for rinsing out the mop, so you aren’t mopping the floors with dirty water.
Use a mop made of natural fibres, we use cotton.
Believe it or not, every time I employ a new staff member they don’t know how to mop a floor properly so here is some advise. Stand up straight when you mop so you don’t get a bad back. Spin the mop if it gathers up to much so that you cover a larger surface, it saves time. Lastly we only dry mop, it stops streaking, our new staff just slosh the water on the floor and it takes forever to dry. Wring your mop out so that you cant get any more water out of it at all, then dry mop the floor, if its a wooden floor go with the grain, again no streaks. Happy Cleaning!
Our unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries. We founded Emu Ridge in 1991.
