Pantry - Weevils Cleaner
To deter weevils and/or mites
10 drops Clove is ideal. Or Nutmeg or Peppermint. Or if pregnant use Lavender (after first trimester)
First be sure to remove all infested items. Put them well outside in a sealed bag. Mix together ingredients and spray to clean the surfaces in affected areas, get the spray into all crevices as this is where the eggs are likely to be. Soak a cotton ball with the essential oil(s) and place them in trouble spots in your cupboards/pantry.
Use on kitchen benches, cupboards, etc.
8 drops Lavender
10 drops Lemon
5 drops Eucalyptus
1 tsp Baking Soda
3 drops liquid soap (optional- e.g. sunlight)
Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle and use as you would a "normal" kitchen spray and wipe. Avoiding chemicals, increasing antibacterial action, and save money!
