If you read my post on Easy Homemade Glass Cleaner That Smells Awesome, you will know that I am on a Make-Your-Own kick when it comes to cleaners. I am amazed at how easy, healthful, and inexpensive it is to make my own cleaners, and this Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner is my favorite so far. I really feel like it has cleaning power, but I love that when I spray it I don't have to hold my breath! If anything it is the opposite. It uses lemon essential oil that smells so fresh and clean that it almost makes me WANT to clean....almost.
I chose Lemon essential oil as my scent. I LOVE any citrus scent. I got mine at my local health food store, but next time I will be ordering it from Organic Mountain Rose Herbs, where the price is much better!
All Purpose Cleaner
1/2 tsp. washing soda
1/2 tsp. castille soap (I use Dr. Bronners)
2 cups hot water
20 drops essential oil of your choice
Combine and put into a spray bottle.
