Making my own cleaning solutions is so important to me. I love that I can clean my home using safe, non-toxic products, and I really love that I can control exactly which ingredients are included in my homemade cleaning products. This is one of my new favorite's! I recently added it to my cleaning caddy, and have been using it to clean my kitchen and bathroom.
What You Will Need:
1 Cup of Water
1 Cup of Distilled White Vinegar ( Purchase HERE )
20 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil ( Purchase HERE )
Clean Spray Bottle ( Purchase HERE )
You will need a spray bottle to hold your cleaner. I adore these clear plastic spray bottles! The first thing you will need to add to your spray bottle is 1 cup of water.
Next, add one cup of distilled white vinegar.
Then add 20 drops of lemon essential oils.
Place the top securely onto your spray bottle and shake well. I recommend shaking well before each use. Because there are no chemical binders in most homemade spray, the ingredients can separate a bit between uses. A quick shake will fix this. Now, just spray your surfaces and clean as you normally would with a soft cloth or paper towels!

Love it thanks! Q: How long will this last once blended?
To be honest, I just use mine until it's gone...so around a month! Hope this helps!
where did you get your funnel?
I've had them for a while, but I think I bought them in the kitchen utensil section at either Target or Walmart. Hope this helps!

Here is a link to my shop...there are a few in there from Amazon.com. You can also find them in some health food stores and pharmacies.
Hi, I don't have lemon essintal oil at the moment can I just use lemon?
It's probably better just to use lemon oil or leave it out completely. The lemon juice may be a little to sticky and your cleaner won't last as long. Hope this helps!
Is there a cleaner that will clean that sticky feeling on kitchen cabinets and drawers? I have tried baking soda, vinegar, and others, nothing seems to work. It's not dirty looking just sticky.
Murphy's oil soap is a liquid cleaner made to do this.
I have no idea if you can duplicate this.
I love your recipes and posts. I dont mean to correct you, but since citrus oils break down plastics and can cause chemicals in the plastic to be released into the solution, wouldn't a glass spray bottle be a better option? I make a few cleaners as well but never put any into plastic bottles.
Is this a safe cleaning product for granite countertops?
Here is the cleaner that I use for granite...
I started making Jessica's recipe using water, dish liquid soap and orange essential oils a year ago. I graduated from a small spray bottle to a large bottle. I use it for everything and love the smell. Not so fond of lemon. Her recipe I use kills flys and those darn ants. I make the recipe at least twice a week. Love it.
Looking for a tub and shower cleaner besides the one for daily spraying. I lost the recipe for it. Pretty sure it used alcohol, and dawn and I'm not sure what else. It did a nice weekly cleaner while still using the daily.
Do you think this would work the same using Cleaning Vinegar? I was worried that the smell of the cleaning would be too strong for the lemon scent?
