There are a lot of decent natural cleaners on the market, but I always make my own all-purpse cleaner. Making my own cleaner is super cheap, I know exactly what ingredients it contains, and by continually reusing one bottle, I am keeping more out of a landfill. Double bonus: I reused a Bragg's apple cider vinegar glass bottle with a spray nozzle I bought at Target. Anytime you are dealing with essential oils, you should avoid plastic, because the oils will eat away at the plastic and the essential oil will quickly become ruined.
Here is what you need to make all-purpose cleaner:
essential oil (optional)
Three simple ingredients. In the bottle mix 50% vinegar with 50% water, and if you want you can add two teaspoons of essential oil. I bought essential oil at my local farmers' market, but you can also get them at natural foods stores or sometimes craft stores. I like using lime for cleaning. All essential oils have different benefits; many are antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and/or antimicrobial. Make sure to shake the bottle before each use because the oil will separate and sit on top.
White vinegar removes grease, mildew, soap scum, and most stains. Additionally, it is a disinfectant. It is also a natural deodorizer, and once it dries the smell of vinegar goes away. Vinegar solutions are safe to use around humans and animals because they don't have any of the harsh chemicals that would normally hurt the respiratory system. This all-purpose cleaner has many uses around the house. Although vinegar works great on most surfaces, it cannot be used on marble. It can also be used on mirrors and windows without streaking! I use it in every room in my house!
