Multi-Purpose Cleaner

April 14, 2013

Cleaning - multi-purpose (2)

5 oz. rubbing alcohol

3 oz. white distilled vinegar

1 tsp. liquid laundry soap

1 tsp. ammonia

15 – 16 oz. water

essential oils – scent of your choice  I like the fresh smell of Lemon.

Mix all ingredients in a 24 oz. spray bottle.

You will need to shake it each time you use it as the essential oils settle at the top.

Cleaning - multi-purpose

I made a bunch to have on hand.  I wrote the “recipe” on the bottle.

The reason this has a little color to it is because I “scented” my vinegar a bit before adding it to this cleaner.

Take the peels of about 3 oranges – put in a quart size bottle (or any bottle you have on hand) and add vinegar.  Let this sit for about 2 weeks.  This can be used as a multi-purpose cleaner as it is, but I thought it was still too vinegary smelling.  It was great to use in this multi-purpose cleaner.  I think it still needs some essential oils but not as much as it would have.  I am not going to add the essential oils to this big jug.  I will wait and add it to the smaller bottle as I refill it.

    Where can one buy essential oils? How “pure” does it need to be when used for adding scent to things?

      Most health food stores sell essential oils. My niece sells Doterra essential oils so I get it from her. You might want to see if there is a dealer in your area. When adding it to cleaners and such, I don’t think it needs to be pure – you just want it for the nice smell.
