I love this recipe and use it all the time on my kitchen counters, the dining table, the high chair, the cabinets, anything!! I swear it cleans better than any other product I've used like 409.

2 Cups water
2 Tbsp liquid Dr. Bronners Castile soap, unscented
5-10 drops Essential Oil
Give it a little swish before you use it each time to make sure it's all mixed up.


Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus, and grapefruit and anti bacterial/anti microbial from what I understand. Right now I'm using Lavender/Eucalyptus

Where do you get the castile soap? I've never heard of it. Would be nice to use something other than vinegar and water

I buy the castile soap at target. Not sure if walmart has it. You can also get it at places like Whole Foods, trader Joes...

I have never seen a spray cleaner work better than this one! Beats any store bought spray. I used to be the 409 queen! lol

I picked up a bottle today at a local health food store. They didn't have unscented so I bought the Eucalyptus. Can't wait to try this recipe!

Here is our all-purpose spray.

In a 1 quart spray bottle, mix:
3 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup white vinegar
10 drops grapefruit seed extract
3-5 drops lemongrass essential oil
3-5 drops lemon essential oil

It smells so fresh!

I've been using the Dr. Broners mix for a while and it's wonderful, it cleans small messes and even cooked on messes!

I get my essential oils from a small family-run company that I highly recommend! The name is Beeyoutiful and here's the link:

Find the Essential Oil That Best Fits Your Needs!

Their catalog is free if you request it, and has excellent articles on health and nutrition!
