All you need to whip up your first spray bottle of DIY all-purpose cleaner is water, vinegar, a lemon, tea tree essential oil, and lemon essential oil. Tea tree essential oil helps to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) and lemon essential oil is historically recognized as a cleaner with its refreshing properties.
I’m sure you already know where to find water, vinegar, and lemons, but in case you’re not familiar with essential oils I love Plant Therapy. They offer the highest quality essential oils at a great price and the fast free shipping they offer can’t be beat!
If you aren’t sure about the surface you’ll be using the cleaner on try it in an inconspicuous location first. I’ve never had any issues and I’ve used it on counters, tables, floors, and even fabric, but since it is all-purpose I’m sure there are a few “purposes” and surfaces I haven’t used it for yet.
