The Best All Natural Cleaner

Other than water. But this cleaner is made of mostly water, so maybe I mean to say “including water.” Whatever.

Are you confused yet?

I’m going to tell you what this cleaner is now.

Right now.

Ok.

It’s water. And vinegar. And orange essential oil. But if you don’t have any essential oil, just water and vinegar is totally fine. It’s great actually. The essential oil just kind of masks the vinegar smell a little.

Which is helpful if your husband says that the smell of vinegar reminds him of when the cleaning ladies used to clean his parent’s floors. So basically he associates the smell of vinegar with “clean floors” but he doesn’t like our clean floors to smell like vinegar. And men say that women are confusing.

But in all honesty, the vinegar smell goes away as soon as the solution dries.  Try it sometime. I’ve been using this cleaning solution for the last 6 months and my house is still clean and odor (vinegar smell) free. I use it on windows, mirrors, sinks, counters, and floors. I’ve tried it in the tub, but it doesn’t quite do the job because HARD WATER, people. Just being honest. But for everything else….this cleaner is golden.

Here’s the very precise recipe.

  • 1-2 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup Vinegar
  • 3 drops Essential Oil of choice. I like the citrus scents for cleaning, but it’s your world.

Dump it in a spray bottle and get to cleaning!
