DIY All Purpose Cleaner

When at all possible I like to use all natural cleaners in my house. Here is a straightforward recipe for a homemade all purpose cleaner. It works great, and I love the fact that I’m not using any toxic ingredients in my house. Just add the following ingredients into a spray bottle. I use the tea tree oil because I like the smell, but any of the recommended essential oil will be okay. I double or triple this recipe, depending on how much cleaning I have to do. Happy Cleaning!


  • 1/2 c white vinegar
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 Tbsp baking soda
  • 10 drops tea tree, lavender, or lemon essential oil (for their disinfectant properties) or if using the same day, add 2 tbsp. of lemon juice. (I use this lemon one)
