Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner Recipe

Over the years, we've had a lot of questions about what products we suggest for this or that, what we like….and usually, our answer is, our all-purpose spray!  We make it ourselves, it works on just about everything and with the addition of the essential oils, it smells great AND disinfects (we've even done bacteria tests!).  Here’s how we make it:

Nooks and Crannies All Purpose Cleaner

All-Purpose Cleaner
16 oz filtered water
1 tablespoon dish soap (Dr. Bronners or Method work well)
10-20 drops essential oils (lavender, tea tree, thyme and clove all disinfect really well)

Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well.

This is a great recipe because it can be adapted for any cleaning task.  More soap can be added for tub/tile cleaning or less for cleaning floors.  Mix half water/half vinegar for an extra-strength cleaner (just don’t use it on marble or granite).  Add a little borax for some anti-fungal action.  This cleaner works on everything from glass to floors and is easy to adapt for different needs.  Just make sure to use a microfiber rag with it!
