Lime essential oil is a natural alternative to chemical disinfectants. To make your own, all-natural disinfectant cleaner, mix about 12-20 drops of lime oil with half a cup of water and half a cup of vinegar. Pour the mixture into a glass spray bottle and use it to disinfect surfaces in your kitchen, bathroom, and throughout the house. The strong citrus scent will also leave behind a clean, fresh aroma!
All-Natural Insect Repellent
You can easily make a natural insect repellent at home using about 10 drops of lime oil in a glass spray bottle with water. You can spray this in your kitchen to repel ants, or spray on your clothes to keep mosquitoes away while you are outdoors.
Lime has powerful abilities to cut through grease, making it very effective at removing stains due to grease, oil, or gum. It is also effective at removing sticker residue. Make sure to test the oil on a patch of fabric to ensure that it does not harm the material you are using it on. If the test patch is fine, then you can scrub the stained area with a few drops of undiluted oil on a cotton pad.
