    Eucalyptus-Mint All-Purpose Disinfecting Soft Soap for Kitchen and Bath! This simple homemade soft soft blend is excellent to clean dishes, laundered items that need to be hand-washed, appliances, sinks, stoves, bathrooms and more.
    Although mild to the skin, the eucalyptus is tough on germs and helps to disinfect while providing a lovely fresh scent.
    As a bonus, using eucalyptus essential oil in your cleaning products also helps to naturally repel undesirable insects and pests from hanging around inside your home.

    5 cups grated castile soap
    1/2 cup baking soda
    1 teaspoon borax
    6 cups hot peppermint tea
    1 teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil

    In a 3-quart stainless steel saucepan, combine the powdered/grated castile soap and hot mint tea. Bring the mixture to a simmer for fifteen minutes over low heat. Add baking soda, borax, and eucalyptus oil stirring well. Remove from heat, cool about 30 minutes, transfer to plastic jug or squirt bottle & label as disinfectant soap. Shake well before using.

      This sounds great! Can tea tree oil be substituted for the eucalyptus oil? So you need to rinse after using this? I can't wait to try it!

      You could substitute tea tree, but it won't smell as fresh and yes, like all soaps, Rinse afterwards.
