Homemade All Purpose Cleaner

Making your own cleaning products is a lot simpler than you my think. One of my favorite ingredients for cleaning is apple cider vinegar (or just plain white in a pinch).

The recipe below makes for a great all purpose cleaner. I use it in the kitchen, the bathroom, on windows and the likes. You can also use the same mixture and pour it into a bucket filled with warm water to mop the floors.

All Purpose Cleaner Recipe
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 15 drops lemon oil (optional)
  1. I pour the water and vinegar into a 2 cup measuring cup (with a spout and handle). Add the essential lemon oil and mix it all up.
  2. Pour into a spray bottle and use as usual.
  3. Give the bottle a good shake if you haven’t used the cleaner in a while.
