Store bought all-purpose cleaning sprays can be super harsh and full of chemicals and toxic ingredients. This DIY cleaning spray only requires 3 natural ingredients and is great for cleaning almost everything in your kitchen.

What You Will Need:
1 1 /2 cups of distilled water
2 tablespoons of Castile soap ( Purchase HERE )
20 drops of lemon essential oil ( Purchase HERE )
Start by adding 1 /2 cups of distilled water to a clean glass spray bottle.
Next, add 2 tablespoons of Castile soap. I like to use Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Orange for this cleaner. Peppermint or Sensitive will work as well. If you don’t have Castile soap, you can substitute with 2 tablespoons of natural dish liquid.
Now add 20 drops of lemon essential oil. I love lemon essential oil for this cleaner because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties. You could use peppermint, lavender or orange essential oils instead if you have them.
Replace the lid and shake well before each use. Because there are no chemical binders in this homemade cleaner, the essential oils may rise to the top in between uses. A quick shake will mix it right back in!
Spray your countertops, appliances and kitchen table liberally.
Use a clean cloth or paper towel to wipe away any dirt, germs or sticky spots with ease! I use this cleaning spray in my kitchen and bathrooms for most general cleaning. It works great on toilets too!
