  • 1 gallon very warm or hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sal Suds
  • 20 drops balsam fir essential oil
  • 20 drops citrus essential oil lemon and/or orange
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 10 drops tea tree oil optional


  • Fill a 2-3 gallon bucket with very warm or hot water.
  • Combine Sal Suds and essential oils. Pour into the warm water and stir well. Use as needed.


If you've got a waxed wood floor, test a small area first to make sure the Sal Suds don't remove the finish.To make a large batch, use 1 cup Sal Suds, 1 1/2 teaspoons balsam fir essential oil, 1/2 teaspoon tea tree oil, 1/2 teaspoon each: lemon and orange essential oil, and 1/2 teaspoon rosemary essential oil. Store in an airtight container. Use a little more than 1/2 teaspoon of the Sal Suds solutions per 1 gallon warm water.
