Before we moved into our new (much smaller) home, I vowed not to use chemicals to clean the house if at all possible. I decided to make up my own cleaning spray made from junk-free ingredients. So far, I have been using this spray recipe and bottles for 7 months, and I LOVE it! It cleans countertops, toilets, sinks, showers, and is AMAZING on windows and mirrors! I bought plain, white wash cloths to use for my cleaning, and they were very well! Stay tuned! I will be sharing my homemade toilet bowl cleaner soon, as well!
I thought I would share the recipe with you, in case you want to try it for yourself.
RECIPE for HOMEMADE Plant-Based Chemical-Free All-Purpose Cleaning Spray
Blue Glass Spray Bottle (I HIGHLY recommend the brand below!)
3/4 cup white vinegar
distilled water (enough to fill the rest of the bottle to 1 inch from the top)
20-25* drops of Plant Therapy Organic Lemon Essential Oil
10-15* drops of Plant Therapy Germ Fighter Synergy Blend Oil
Pour all ingredients into the blue bottle (in the order noted). Simply spray and wipe off to clean!
