With just a few simple ingredients you can save a lot of money. Plus, since you are making it yourself you simply refill the same container over and over which saves on packaging that would otherwise become trash.
Homemade All Purpose Cleaner Simple Recipe:
3 parts filtered or distilled water
1 part distilled white vinegar
2-5 drops tea tree oil*
*You could also use cinnamon, clove, lavender, rosemary or lemon. I use tea tree oil because I usually have a bottle laying around although clove is another favorite of mine, especially since ants like to move into our home during the rainy season and clove essential oil repells them quite nicely.
I simply pour vinegar about 1/4 of the way into my spray bottle and then fill the rest with filtered water and then add a few drops of essential oil. Put the spray nozzle on and shake it up.
I use homemade cotton non-paper towels with my homeamde all purpose cleaner.

Please Note: – These cleaners have not been tested on all the surfaces in your home…only mine so please use at your own risk. Test first in a small, hidden area. Please label your homemade all purpose cleaner appropriately and keep all homemade cleaners out of the reach of children. While I do let my supervised first grade students use this spray cleaner they know not spray it in their eyes (or mouth!) which would sting something fierce due to the vinegar!
