    I have heard that straight tea tree oil can be toxic, but that when it is manufactured into a product that it can be okay. I would talk to your vet so that you do not end up poisoning your animals. There are also a bunch of natural cleaners out there, even in the grocery store, target and online for purchase. ^_^

    Hi there! I love using vinegar for a household cleaner. It is excellent. However...if you are looking for a better smelling one, my sister makes one and uses lavender essential oil. I use that when I don't want to use straight vinegar. Apparently lavender is fine and is also a fla deterrent.
