Natural Cleaning Recipes

in , , by Julie Nichols, February 16, 2017
Why spend a fortune on cleaning products that are made with toxic chemicals when you can make your own natural cleaner using a few simple ingredients.  Combined in various ways, common household items like lemons and white vinegar work just as well as the most expensive cleaning products on the market.

Today I want to share with you two natural cleaning recipes that I use in my own home. Plus a free natural cleaning recipe printable and printable labels for your bottles. I hope you will try these natural cleaners and end up loving them as much as I do!


White Vinegar
Fresh Lemon Juice or Bottled 
Lavender essential oil or you can use lemon or orange essential oil
Olive oil or grapeseed oil

My most used cleaner is an all-purpose cleaner, great for all kinds of hard surfaces.  I use it to clean my kitchen countertop, kitchen, and bathroom sinks, and the glass shelves in my refrigerator. This natural cleaner is also good for cleaning windows and spot cleaning floors.


One part white vinegar to one part lemon juice ( I use 1/2 cup vinegar to 1/2 cup lemon juice)
5-10 drops of essential oil
Mix and store in a clean spray bottle

Start by squeezing the lemons.  You can squeeze a bunch and store the juice for when you make another batch of cleaner.  Or you can purchase bottled lemon juice, this way you will always have it on hand. Just make sure it is pure lemon juice.  Amazon has a really good selection.

Pour the squeezed lemon juice in a measuring cup using a colander to strain the pulp.

Pour a 1/2 a cup of the lemon juice and 1/2 a cup of white vinegar into a clean spray bottle.

Add about 5-10 drops of the lavender oil

Shake the spray bottle to mix the ingredients.

Now grab a sponge and make your home sparkle.


2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon of olive oil or grapeseed oil ( I used olive oil)
3-5 drops essential oil ( I used lavender)
Mix and store in a clean spray bottle

You can print it letter size and save in a binder for referencing or print it 5 x 7 inches to put in a frame and place it on your kitchen counter.  Either way, I hope you love these cleaning recipes as much as I do!  Oh, don't forget to download the labels below to place on your bottles.
