INGREDIENTS

Equipment

  • 1 BPA free spray bottle (You can buy these at the $1 Store, or re-use an empty spray bottle)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 10–20 drops Thieves Essential Oil

The essential oils help to take away from the strong vinegar smell while having anti-bacterial and anti-mold properties.

Other Essential Oils You Can Use (as is, or in combination)

  • Lemon
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Clove
  • Lavender
  • Grapefruit

DIRECTIONS

Pour everything into a spray bottle. I usually do a 1:1 solution, so if your bottle is really big, I just do ½ vinegar, and ½ water. Spray and use when needed for cleaning counter tops, sinks, or toilets.

Store under sink or in cupboard away from sunlight.

Why vinegar as a cleaner?

Mildly acidic white vinegar dissolves dirt, soap scum, and hard water deposits from smooth surfaces, yet it's gentle enough to use in solution to clean hardwood flooring. White vinegar is a natural deodorizer, absorbing odors instead of covering them up. With no coloring agents, white vinegar won't stain grout on tiled surfaces. In the kitchen, use vinegar-and-water spray to clean countertops, lightly soiled range surfaces and backsplash areas. In the bathroom, spray countertops, floors and exterior surfaces of the toilet.

The less water you dilute the vinegar with, the stronger it works. Undiluted white vinegar works quicker on tougher cleaning problems involving hard water deposits or soap scum. Undiluted vinegar works particularly well on the inside of the toilet bowl. It also works really well to clean showerheads that have been clogged with mineral deposits.
