Non-Toxic Spring Cleaning Spray

Happy spring, everyone! It’s SO time to dust off the furniture, move some stuff around and get ready for the light and new life on it’s way with the season. My grandma used to clean with a solution similar to the one I’m sharing with you today – she always made a point to tell me all you really need is water – essentially, you don’t need to buy products with chemicals, fragrances or dyes.

Today, I use this non-toxic, all-purpose cleaning spray throughout the house – I keep one generic plastic spray bottle under each bathroom sink and have one in the kitchen as well. This solution cuts through grease and minerals in water and best of all, it doesn’t leave streaks. I’ve outlined the basic and super inexpensive ingredients below. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment – maybe try a different essential oil or apple cider vinegar (I do prefer white vinegar for this recipe especially for the overall solution scent). I would love to hear what you try!

  • Reusable spray bottle(s), like this one on Amazon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1 teaspoon dish soap
  • 1 cap-full tea tree oil
