Eucalyptus oil has natural antiseptic and disinfectant properties and has some great uses for around the home. I first came across it's uses when it was recommended to remove sticky labels from new glass windows I had. It turned out to be the only thing that would remove them effectively and easily. Since then I've come across more uses

It's a clear oil but be careful to keep out of reach or children and do not consume.

Floors
Fill a bucket with water, add a couple of capfuls of eucalyptus oil and use to mop your kitchen and bathroom floors.

Stain Remover
Get rid of grease spots or stains by dabbing gently with a cloth soaked in eucalyptus oil. Try first on an area that won't be seen to make sure there is no adverse affect to the material.
