DIY All-Purpose Cleaner

Posted by on 25 January 2013 in Be Inspired, Be Whole, Green Living, Make It | 9 comments

So we’re nesting this month, right?  Hunkering down in our cozy homes with our loved ones nestled around us….  And I don’t know about you, but this is when I begin to notice areas of my house that aren’t so…well, maintained.  One of my favorite household cleaners was given to me by my cousin, Betsey.  I use it almost daily in our kitchen as part of the clean-up routine, and at this point, my kitchen isn’t ‘finished’ for the evening unless I spray all the counter tops and give them a good wipe down.  To me, it’s the final sweep of disinfection that lets me sleep soundly at night.  But really, it’s just a great all-natural, all-purpose cleaner that is both easy and inexpensive to make.

Here’s what you need:

The only step:  Mix ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle.

And there you have it!  Betsey had the great idea of putting the recipe on the outside of the spray bottle so when you run out, you don’t have to try to remember what ‘pin’ it was or where you wrote it down.  Super smart and simple, right?

  1. Okay, I thought I was missing something…Then I saw in tiny letters at the bottom of the photo “Not pictured, 2 cups of water.” Really?!? And NO list of ingredients except the picture. You should definitely list or picture the water please!!

  2. How long is it good for?

  3. I found this recipe via Pinterest this week and it is AMAZING! First DIY cleaner I’ve found that wipes EVERYTHING off our baseboards with EASE. Yep. Never buying all-purpose cleaner again.

  4. can u use it on anything or just kitchen tops 1 wood tubs mirror

  5. could you use this for mirrors or glass?

  6. Your message…

  7. I agree. I use this recipe and I add my own theives blend to it for a disinfectant for my home. Makes things smell great too!

  8. I love that idea, Holly! You can really customize it then!

  9. Love this and the simplicity! You can also add some drops of essential oil to naturally scent it.
