All purpose spray cleaner

Posted on July 8, 2014 at 3:40 PM

Have you ever actually looked at those "all natural" "safe for babies & pets" cleaners? Most of them have ingredients you can't even pronounce, and forget knowing what the specific item is.  I like to make my own for this reason.  I have a few different recipes that I use, and hope that you enjoy them too. These are safe and natural, and most of the ingredients are or can be organic very easily. 

The most easy one I make is just water and vinegar. I do a 50/50 ratio.  I promise you that your counters will be clean, and they won't smell like vinegar in just a few mins.  The smell doesn't stay, but the vinegar cleans and disinfects the counter tops, and what could be more easy?  Just put it in a spray bottle. You can use an old spray bottle or go buy a new one at the dollar store.  

Another thing that you can do to this recipe is add 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil. I sometimes do a citrus blend of lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit and tangerine. It smells so good.  I also like to mix up peppermint, lavender and tea tree.  Mix and match what scents you like.  

The last one that I use from time to time is 50/50 water and vinegar and then I add a few tablespoons of Castile soap.  I make my own liquid Castile soap, so it's pretty cheap for me.  I will tell you later on how you can make over a gallon of Castile soap for under $5, so stay tuned.  If you find that the Castile soap doesn't have enough of a scent, you can add a few drops of essential oils as we'll.  just put in a squirt bottle a your done.

It is quick, simple, easy and cheap to make your own cleaner. I hope you enjoy mixing and matching scents to your style.

thank you for reading and God Bless
