Common uses

Uses for eucalyptus oil around the house
Aside from medicinal uses, eucalyptus oil can be used around your home to replace many environmentally harsh synthetic chemicals.

Penny, a professional cleaner, has these tips:
'I make a spray and wipe with water, eucalyptus oil and some washing up liquid. The idea comes from a hospital cleaner and works well. Proportions are not rocket science. Fill bottle mostly with water - add a slurp of dishwashing liquid and then a capful or thereabouts of 100% eucalyptus. Shake gently to mix. Works well on all surfaces.
I use it diluted again in a little water in a bucket and it is great for all those finger marks that are hard to move from laminex finishes.'

- You can also make a general disinfectant for toilets, etc, and again, it's a very simple recipe. Mix 50ml of eucalyptus oil with a litre of water. That's it - you can store it as you would a normal disinfectant.

- Eucalyptus oil can be used neat in order to remove sticker/decal residue from glass.

- Add 1-2 teaspoonfuls of eucalyptus oil to your load of washing for a fresh scent along with the antimicrobial benefits.

- Use the oil neat to help remove paint, grease and ink from clothes.

- If you have a hanging car air freshener that's almost dead, reinvigorate it by adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil.

- Half a teaspoon mixed with half a litre of water makes for a good bug repellent for plants.

- Use it as a stainless steel cleaner.

- To use as a room air freshener, Mix a quarter of a teaspooon or 15 drops of eucalyptus oil with a half teaspoon of vodka, place in an atomiser/spray bottle and add 2 cups of water. This should be quite subtle, so you may need to add more.
