All-Purpose Household Cleaner

These homemade all-natural cleaning recipes will help you save money and avoid the endocrine-disrupting chemicals so often found in common cleaning products.

Below, you’ll find recipes for two different hand sanitizers.

For the first vinegar-based recipe, all you need are a handful of ingredients, including: essential oils, white vinegar, and water. Really, it’s that simple. Vinegar is a great general household cleaner as it is very effective at killing bacteria.

Watch me make it in my video below and if you’re currently using a store-bought all-purpose cleaner, I hope this helps you make the natural switch.

For the second ethanol-based recipe, make sure to use an ethanol that is at least 95% or higher. This recipe is stronger than the first as the ethanol contains strong anti-viral effects as recommended by the CDC.

Tip:

  • Feel free to switch lavender essential oil with your own favorite scents, like orange or peppermint.
  • Reminder: Make sure to use an ethanol that is 95% or higher to be effective.
