DIY All-Natural Household Cleaner

DIY All-Natural Household Cleaner

Although a Norwex gal through & throughout ( & no, I do not sell Norwex), I love having a household cleaner on hand.

Since living on my own at 18 years old, I have gone from using 409 “Antibacterial” All-Purpose Cleaner spray [ which PS was rated dirty AF on Think Dirty application – an ‘8 ] to Mrs. Meyers Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner spray [ also rated an ‘8,’ gross ] to just simply using a Norwex EnviroCloth. Quite the transition, I know.

Honestly, my EnviroCloth deserves a post all of its own. That is just how worthy I view this particular household staple.

Anyways, rather than digress, let’s get back to my DIY All-Natural Household Cleaner. Whether you’re a spray & paper towel gal, or an E-cloth gal like myself who just likes to have a household cleaner on hand, you’re going to want to try out this recipe ASAP.

The natural scent is ultra clean, refreshing, & rejuvenating. Free from harsh & dangerous chemicals, & perfumes. Super versatile, effective, & safe. Overall, non-toxic AF.

the magical potion

β‹’ 16 oz Amber Glass Spray Bottle

β‹’ 8 oz white vinegar

β‹’ 8 oz distilled water

β‹’ 30-35 drops Thieves Oil Blend

how it works

β‹’ White vinegar:

  • Otherwise known as: “Acetic Acid”
  • Works as a disinfectant, deodorizer, & “grease-cutter” [ totally just made that word up ].
  • According to the David Suzuki Foundation [ 2019 ]: White vinegar can be used to tackle the likes of salmonella, E. coli & other “gram-negative” bacteria, as, “the acid in vinegar crosses the bacteria’s cell membrane, prompting a release of protons, which causes the cell to die.”
  • PRO TIP: White vinegar found on most store shelves is a five per cent concentration of acetic acid. It kills about 80 per cent of germs. Look for stronger concentrations at eco-friendly stores that have refill stations [ David Suzuki Foundation, 2019 ]. Or, try this!

β‹’ Thieves Oil Blend:

*Please note, I do not purchase exclusively from Young Living. However, I am obsessed with their Thieves blend. For those interested in purchasing this blend @ wholesale rate, please let me know. I would love to help you! [ Either comment below, or contact me here ]

  • This blend is comprised of: Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, Radiata, Rosemary
  • Contains highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, & anti-infectious essential oils
  • A 1997 study conducted at Weber State University demonstrated the killing power of these magical oils against airborne microorganisms.
  • A 2000 study conducted by Sue Chao & Gary Young found antifungal properties for Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Rosemary, & Eucalyptus Radiata oils.
  • Clove – A 2015 study found clove EO to be not only antifungal, but also antibacterial.
  • Unlike traditional toxic household cleaners, EO’s do not kill beneficial bacteria [ Essential oil expert, Kurt Schnaubelt ].
  • PRO TIP: Diffuse Thieves to cleanse the air. For aromatic purposes: Diffuse up to 10 minutes 3 times daily or directly inhale.

why an amber glass bottle?

Why not?


Essential oils are best stored in amber (or blue glass) to avoid deterioration and protect the aromatic and therapeutic properties of your essential oils.

For y’all looking for a top shelf, high quality, & beyond affordable amber &/or blue glass spray bottle [ s ], Sally’s Organics on Amazon is one of my favorites. Click here to shop. I purchased my set [ of two ] for $9.98, with free shipping as a Prime member.
