    Sure would! They all have antiseptic properties. You can even just add lemon juice (fresh!) to the mixture if you have it.

    I actually meant from a lemon. The bottled stuff from the store tends to leave my floors a bit sticky, and I'm not sure why. <_<

    You can also boil lemon and/or orange rinds to extract their essence then add that to whatever cleaning base you're using.

    Other citrus smells to consider would be grapefruit and lime.

    I never have a problem with the EO though! I use it almost exclusively, unless I have lemons that are going to go bad soon.

    A poor sense of smell is a blessing like no other shortcoming of the senses

    Years ago I use to use Pinesol.
    Until one day when I was washing the storm door and accidentally knocked the bucket over and it spilled into my mint bed and ran into the lawn.
    Every where that pinesol water went, everything died and 2 years later, nothing, not even a weed grew on the ground there.
    I never used that stuff again.

    I too go with vinegars and citrus and such. Its especially important now that we go with as much environmentally safe things as we have our own septic we have to maintain and you can not put anything in it that would alter the microorganism growth that breaks down the waste.

    Plus we have a grey water system so we can not risk contaminating our own well water or anything!

    No oven cleaners here, no powerful de-greasers, no hard water removers or soap scum removers....natural cleaners and elbow grease is what we have to use!
