Pine-sol is one of those things that just take you back to your childhood. Walking into a clean-smelling home just makes your day right? Pine-sol has that fresh clean smell.
It is also pretty good at getting the job done rather than just masking the odors of a dirty home. It also has several other household uses you don’t want to miss. I love finding uses for things around the house like Scrubbing Bubbles.
Amazing uses for Pine-Sol
Disinfecting solid surfaces: One thing people need right now is a disinfectant product. Pine-sol is a great option and is available in most stores.
Pine-sol has the same level of disinfecting as most Lysol and Clorox products testing at 99.9% of germs. Pine-sol can kill enveloped viruses like the coronavirus making it a viable option when other products are out of stock.
Removing grease and blood from laundry: This one was found on accident. I won’t lie. One day there was a bit of an accident that led to blood-soaked clothes. While all was well after a couple of days healing and no stitches were needed we discovered that fingers bleed a lot.
We also just so happened to be out of laundry detergent and I was worried about leaving blood on the clothes for too long. Tossed in a bit of Pine Sol and everything came out looking new. Later when I worked a fast-food job I discovered a Pine-Sol soak is the best way to get grease out of the white shirts they had us wearing.
Flying insect killer: This one works out great for you. Mix 80% Pine-Sol with 20% water and use as a spray to hit flys, wasps, and other flying insects.
It takes them down fast and leaves the area smelling great. If you happen to hit something besides the insect just grab a microfiber cloth and give it a good cleaning while you are at it.
Clean up the patio furniture: Pine Sol is great for cleaning away the winter mess in your outdoor space dilute and use to wash everything from the deck to the fabric seat cushions. After washing the patio furniture dump the bucket onto your finished patio and give that a scrub too.
Stainless Steel Cleaner: To clean your stainless steel without the hassle use Pine-sol. As much as I love the stainless steel kitchen because let’s face it, I have kids and it is super easy to sanitize I hate streaks and fingerprints all over.
Dilute 1/2 cup Pine Sol in 1-gallon water and wipe your appliances from top to bottom in straight lines. Follow with warm water and a quick buff with a microfiber cloth.
More Pine Sol Uses
Keep cats from using an area as a bathroom: When we had guests with animals the cats left their mark which made our male cat decide to do the same. The scent of Pine Sol makes the cat want to avoid the area. Kinda like it does to my son that was very unhappy with me for buying it.
Shampoo animal accident: Pine Sol works great in our carpet cleaner and was ultimately one of the vital items that helped save our carpet after our guests left.
Carpet Cleaner: Pine-Sol can be used as a carpet cleaner. Mix a quarter cup of Pine-Sol with a gallon of water. Apply the solution to stains on your carpet, let it sit for a few minutes, then blot with a clean cloth. Always test on an inconspicuous area first to ensure the color doesn’t fade.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Pine-Sol can be used to clean and disinfect your toilet bowl. Pour it in, let it sit for a while, then scrub with a toilet brush and flush.

Clean your trash can: Mix half water and half Pine Sol together and dump into your trash cans to keep critters out. The smell is a great deterrent and your cans get cleaned as well.
After trash pick up spray your can down with a hose and then repeat. You will never have dirty trash cans again and the critters will go knock someone else’s over instead. This is the same reason you do not want to use large amounts of Pine-Sol in your home if you have pets.
