DIY Cleaners : All-Purpose Spray

All-Purpose Spray - Clean Just About Anywhere Spary - Clean Mama

This week I’ll be sharing my 3 favorite DIY recipes for spring cleaning.  It’s spring cleaning season and you need a go-to all-purpose spray to clean all those spots on your checklist.  I promise you this All-Purpose Spray recipe is the perfect clean just-about-anywhere spray.  Want the kids to help?  Hand them a bottle of this.  Not to be used on marble or granite (because of the white vinegar).

All-Purpose Spray Ingredients - Clean Mama

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (lemon and clove is my favorite blend)

Use a Funnel to Pour Ingredients into Spray Bottle - Clean Mama

Mix in a spray bottle, spray liberally on surfaces and wipe clean with a soft cleaning cloth (I prefer microfiber).

You can find the aqua microfiber cl0ths here and if you’d rather purchase this recipe (with up to 7 others) already on an adorable label with or without a glass spray to store it in – look no further than Clean Mama Home:

  1. I love the DIY house cleaners. It’s always nice to really know what goes into what you are spraying or using in your house. I have also heard that adding a little alcohol like vodka or just rubbing alcohol helps with killing bacteria. Have you heard this and if so what are your thoughts on this? I was thinking about trying it but not sure that it will really help.

  2. Love the cute labels!!

  3. Michele says:

    Does this one not disinfect as well as the one with vodka?

  4. Melissa says:

    What would you recommend I use on my quartz countertop for disinfecting? Thanks! Love your blog 🙂

  5. Mary Siegismund says:

    What is best to use to clean crud off of the inside of GE Oven (newish last year).

  6. Teresa Finney says:

    I was finally able to purchase a bottle of Clove EO. I can see why lemon and clove is your favorite blend? I made your sink cleaner and used it to clean my sink. I absolutely loved the smell when I opened the container that I have it in.

  7. I just made more of the lemon & lavender bathroom spray, all purpose wipes and for the first time I made the hand sanitize (spray and gel). I really like knowing what is going into the products and my cat who is very sensitive to strong scents loves it also.
