Keep It Clean – Easy 3 Ingredient All Purpose Spray


Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

So, let’s be real. There’s about 1.75 million homemade cleaner recipes floating around out there. I’m sure they’re all fantastic.

You know what’s fantastic to me? Easy. Simple. Cheap.

Can I get an AH-MEN?
This recipe is pretty much my favorite. It takes about 30 seconds to pour in a bottle and bam.

You’re good to go.

I use this as my primary bathroom cleaner, kitchen counter cleaner, and anything cleaner that needs a quick wipe down.

Homemade 3 Ingredient All Purpose Spray - I use this for cleaning the bathroom, kitchen and well EVERYTHING!

The best part about it is the smell. Depending on which essential oils you choose, it can smell like heaven or other heaven. I know, tough choice. I typically go with Lavender, Tea Tree (Meleleuca), or Lemon oils (or all 3!) because of their antibacterial properties.

Sometimes I’ll throw some Peppermint in too, because I love the smell. The other heavyweight cleaning ingredient involved is vinegar. Because of it’s high acidity levels, mold, bacteria, and other germs don’t stand a chance. The essential oil cuts out the sharp smell of the vinegar, so you really can’t go wrong.

All Purpose Cleaner using 3 ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 part water
  • 1 part vinegar
  • 10-15 drops essential oils of choice
  • Spray Bottle

Pour everything in your spray bottle of choice and shake it around for a second. I shake it before each use to ensure the oils are well mixed.

That’s it. Seriously.

Now let’s take a look at the cost to convince you even further.

  • Water: Free.99
  • Vinegar: I get 2 gallons at Costco for $3.49. That makes each gallon $1.75. I use about 2 C per bottle, which is 1/8 of a gallon. That’s makes the total vinegar price $.22.
  • Essential Oils: Let’s say you use high quality oils. 10-15 drops will cost you around $.30.
  • Total Price: $.52

I would choose this spray hands down over disinfectant wipes any day of the week. And with the average container of wipes costing between $3-$4, this spray is much more economical.

Let’s compare them even further:

Wipes: pricey, smells like chemicals, leaves a residue, takes a million to clean a bathroom, not so environmentally friendly

Homemade Spray: cheap, nose nirvana, leaves everything sparkling, just as disinfecting as the other guy, environmentally friendly

Is there even a question? We have a clear winner, folks. Now go and enjoy!

You don’t need the essential oils, they just make it smell nice. A 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water works wonders. Learned it from working in a zoo and they wanted something nontoxic and effective . It even works as glass cleaner, though cleaning the stove after a greasy mess is my favorite use. It makes it so easy
