Here’s a simple recipe for chemical free cleaning that I found will leave your kitchen sparkling and your home smelling fresh and clean!
If you’re on a mission to eliminate chemicals from your home, but still want a squeaky clean kitchen, this cleaning spray is for you!
Making your own cleaning product is simple and can be done with just a few ingredients. When combining ingredients that have disinfectant properties, you can easily fight the grease and grime without using harsh or harmful products.
I’ll show you just how to do it!
- 1 cup Water
- ½ cup White Vinegar
- 1 tsp Liquid Dish Soap
- ½ tsp Grapefruit Essential Oil
- ½ tsp Our Version “On Guard” Essential Oil Blend
- ½ tsp Lemon Essential Oil
- Empty Plastic Bottle
- Kraft Label (Optional)
You’ll also need a kitchen funnel and spray top bottle. I really like the bullet bottles Bulk Apothecary carries. They come in several colors so you can customize your spray bottle however you’d like!
Begin by combining the water, vinegar and dish soap.
Add in each essential oil. These essential oils all have a nice yellow color, so your mixture will be a pretty citrus color to match the fragrance!
Stir all of the ingredients together.
Carefully transfer the mixture into the bottle. This is where the kitchen funnel is useful. I transferred my mixture using my funnel over my kitchen sink to avoid spilling or creating a mess.
Shake well to be sure the mixture is completely combined. You’ll want to shake the bottle before each use as well.
Spray on kitchen surfaces and wipe with a clean towel.
How easy was that?!
Not only will your kitchen be chemical free, but it will smell fantastic and look sparkling clean!
Nice Citrus Kitchen Spray Recipe, Its look’s easy. I will trey it.
Do you have problems with the essential oils breaking down the plastic bottles?
If the essential oils are undiluted, it can possibly break down plastics. Glass bottles are recommend for undiluted essential oils.
In addition to glass bottles, PET plastic bottles are suitable for use with essential oils.
PET plastic bottles are suitable for diluted essential oils.
I will definitely try this
Great; let us know how it goes!
Do the oils leave behind a film when cleaning?
We didn’t experience that using this recipe.
I am also wondering about the residue of the oil. Has anyone tried this?
I like the recipe, but cannot stand the smell of vinegar. When you finish mm icing and use this, does it stinks like vinegar?
I hope not, I’d like to try it. Lol
We didn’t experience any vinegar-like scent; let us know your results when you try it.
Is this safe to use on Dorian?
This is safe to use on many kitchen surfaces, as it is chemical free. You can test it on a small area before using it on larger areas.
