Natural All-Purpose Cleaner

I've been busy cleaning, weeding, and repairing stuff around my home. Just made a batch of my favorite spring all-purpose cleaner and wanted to share the recipe with you. This non-toxic formula contains vinegar combined with hydrogen peroxide that makes an excellent disinfectant and sanitizer. Adding essential oils to homemade cleaning products smells amazing and is extremely beneficial as the oils contain antibacterial, anti fungal, and antiviral properties. This spray can be used on all surfaces, does not leave a residue, and smells like a fresh herb garden.


32 oz plastic or glass spray bottle
2 cups water
3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
3/4 hydrogen peroxide
10 drops basil essential oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil

Other Essential Oil Possibilities

15 drops tea tree oil + 15 drops lavender
30 drops lemongrass
15 drops sage + 15 drops citrus
10 drops lemon + 10 drops peppermint + 10 drops lavender
15 drops cedar + 15 drops sage
30 drops pine
15 drops lemon + 15 drops peppermint
10 drops peppermint + 10 drops eucalyptus + 10 drops orange

Best Wishes For A Great Week!
