This soap spray for bathrooms cleans and freshens surfaces without leaving any toxic fragrances behind. Its citrusy and earthy scent comes from essential oils that also help to disinfect: Lemongrass essential oil has been found to effectively reduce germs and bacteria, making it a greener alternative to chemical disinfecting agents. Another eco-friendly choice is castile soap, a natural and highly concentrated cleaner that lifts away dirt and grime. So breathe easy – this DIY option is better for your wallet, your health, and the environment!
