Create a Chemical-Free Car Cleaning Kit
Eliminating harmful chemical cleaners from our household was a goal on mine when my kids were babies. I took the leap and invested in Young Living Essential Oils and Norwex cleaning products in 2016 and I decided to create some DIY cleaners. One of the first items I made using essential oils was a car wash kit to give to my hubby for Father’s Day. I created some easy Essential Oils for cleaning the interior of a car which resulted in an awesome DIY Car Wash Bucket Kit with Free Printables!
Keep reading to learn how to make this fun Chemical-Free Car Wash Kit using essential oils and Norwex products! I also included the essential oil recipes so you can make a car wash kit of your own!

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS
It’s okay if you aren’t entirely sure what essential oils are and their purpose – I didn’t either until 2016, however, I wish I knew about them 20 years ago!
Essential Oils are natural oils extracted from plants and trees. From Young Living’s Website: “Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanical from which they come.
Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use.”
You can use essential oils topically, inhale them, or ingest them. When applied topically, the oils travel through your bloodstream and every cell in your body in about 20 minutes.
You can inhale essential oils by diffusing them or simply inhaling directly from the bottle. Some oils can be ingested by adding a few drops to beverages, food or in a capsule. I’ve personally experienced major positive health changes by ingesting essential oils after discovering I had an overactive thyroid and Graves Disease.
My favorite chemical-free cleaning products to use (other than essential oils) are from Norwex. I discovered Norwex while shopping at a home event right after we bought our house two years ago.
We had these amazing hardwood floors installed in our new house and I wasn’t sure what product I should use to clean them. After seeing a demonstration of the Norwex products, I decided to try the mop and cloths and they are now the only products I use to clean a majority of my home!
When I heard that Norwex had a car wash mitt, I knew it would be the perfect addition to create a chemical-free car wash kit.
The Norwex window cloth has the best window cleaning results I’ve ever seen… so much that I haven’t used Windex in years! In fact, since I started using essential oils combined with Norwex, we don’t have a single toxic chemical cleaner in our home.

Shake for every use. Can be used in your home (on counters, floors, bathroom) or inside car (dash, doors, tires). I add lemon oil to my home all-purpose cleaner for a fresh scent.
WHERE TO BUY ESSENTIAL OILS
I only use Young Living essential oils because of the quality and their method of distilling produce the best essential oils available on the market today. In fact, Young Living has a Seed to Seal guarantee that surpasses any other oil company’s guarantee of the quality and purity of their oils. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather pay a little more guaranteed quality oils than paying a little less for cheap oils that may or may not provide the same benefit.
Also, Do Not Buy Young Living Essential Oils from Amazon, eBay or other third-party sites.
The reason I only buy oils directly from Young Living is the same reason I wouldn’t buy a designer handbag from the back of a van on a street corner. It’s probably not the real thing or has been tampered with in some way. You wouldn’t want to apply or ingest an “oil” that someone put something strange in or receive a bottle of “water” instead of oil (trust me, this happens all the time!). Please don’t be the one that gets scammed by buying essential oils anywhere other than Young Living!
Now that that’s out of the way, here are few more facts & benefits that Young Living offers:
- YL offers many membership benefits, including monthly essential oils, rewards programs to earn FREE product
- Young Living is also the only essential oil company that is approved by the FDA with a special line of Vitality oils and products
- YL has 22+ years of experience and is the only oil company that owns their own farms

Father’s Day Free Printable Greeting Cards
Have you notice that greeting cards these are days are really expensive?! Seriously, the hubby gave me a Mother’s Day card and when I looked at the price on the back (it’s a bad habit, I know) I saw that he paid close to $10 for it! Half the time these cards end up being recycled or stuffed in a drawer causing clutter, so that day we made a pact to not buy any more greeting cards. Besides, you can find so many free ones online or make them yourself! So, I put together a few greeting cards for my kiddos to give their dad this year and sharing them with you ????
