This is Day 8 in the 31 Days to Green Clean series!
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We were battling the sickies here all weekend, which was not fun! Let me tell you that I am thankful that I have all natural cleaning solutions that I know will also disinfect and kill germs! And I’m sharing one of them with you today! Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, between being sick and issues with our internet, it just didn’t happen. But, it’s good to take a day of rest, right?!
So today I have my recipe for Homemade Multipurpose Cleaner. This is the main cleaner that we use around our house because hubs doesn’t like the smell of vinegar.
We use it to clean our bathroom, kitchen, dining table and benches, floors and basically anything else that needs a good cleaning.
You make this multipurpose cleaner by mixing water, castile soap and tea tree oil in an empty spray bottle. The castile soap gives it strong cleaning power, and the tea tree oil has anti-viral and anti-bacterial qualities, so this cleaner disinfects and cleans naturally without using dangerous chemicals.
Homemade Multipurpose Cleaner
- Fill a 32 oz spray bottle to an inch or two below the fill line, leave room to add the soap and essential oil.
- Add approx. 2 Tbsp. castile soap (I like peppermint or citrus, but you can use any scent you like, or even unscented)
- Add 10-20 drops of tea tree oil
- Shake gently to combine.
This cleaner can be used anywhere that you would use the vinegar cleaner, or any other conventional multipurpose cleaner, around your house. After you make it, I’d love to hear how you like it!
If you like this cleaner, you’ll love my popular Homemade Disinfecting Wipes!
Also, if you missed it on Saturday, I asked for your questions about homemade and green cleaning, so I can try to answer some of those questions in future posts!
