When it comes to products that come into my home, I am weary to say the least. I like to keep things as natural as I possibly can and often times when you do this you will find that purchasing the natural alternative to chemical based cleaners comes with a bit of a price increase. No shocker there if you are one to opt for anything organic in the grocery store. Not to mention, most often times I found that the natural cleaners I did invest in, didn’t really seem to clean. I have tried them all. Even the ones with the montly membership. In fact, I may have left over bottles of things I bought and didn’t even use becuase they were so ineffective.
I began to make my own. After quite a bit of hits and misses in the cleaning department, I am happy to share with you my go to recipe for an all purpose spray that actually works!The very best part of this is that it even costs less then those horrible chemically filled alternatives and significantly less then their organic counterparts. So you get an effective non toxic cleaner that doesn’t cost a small fortune.
What You Will Need To Make This All Purpose Cleaning Spray:
1/2 cup distilled vinegar
20 drops of lemon essential oil
1 1/2 cups of water
Tools You May Need:

Where To Use
As in the name, all purpose, I literally use this for all rooms of my house. You can even use this on your mirros to replace the windex! It works great in the bathroom and kitchen. If using in the toilet I go ahead and spray around the bowl. Then sprinkle a bit of baking soda into the bowl as well. Keeping non toxic and effective.
How To Store
Store in a cleaning cabinet just like you would any of your other cleaners. Although shelf life might be longer if you opt to use distilled water versus regular faucet water. The distilled boils out all the bacteria from the water and using it will lessen the chance for bacteria to build up over al ong period of time. If you are anything like me, this bottle is in daily use and not stored long enough to spoil. I make a fresh bottle at least once a month.
