Happy Spring! We’re finally getting some sunshine this week, and it’s making me want to clean house- mind, body and home. I’m trying to eat cleaner and get rid of some addictive foods and beverages. It’s herbal tea for me this week. I think the sun is helping balance the moodiness of zero caffeine.
This morning I was making a couple batches of natural All-Purpose cleaner for my home, and was thinking you might find the recipe useful too. Once in a while if I’ve been bad about cleaning (that never happens, right!) I’ll use something stronger, but this works very well for all kinds of cleaning needs. I love that it’s easy and inexpensive to make. I spend enough on natural products as it is, so if something is fast to make that I can do myself I’d rather do that. Plus, that way you know exactly what you’re getting.
DIY All-Purpose Cleaner
You will need:
- 16 ounces water
- 2 ounces vinegar
- 1 tsp dish soap
- A few drops essential oil (optional)
- Reusable Spray Bottle
Add all ingredients to the spray bottle. Make sure the lid and sprayer are closed tight, then shake to combine. It’s always a good idea to test the surface in a small area first to make sure the spray is safe, particularly when using essential oil. I like to use about 10 drops.
Have a wonderful week friends!
With love and gratitude,
