How to Make Natural All-Purpose Cleaner

It's easy to forget that Spring is a time of renewal, amidst this chaos and hard times. During COVID-19 lockdowns, many people are looking for things to do around their homes. Natural all-purpose cleaners are easy to make, and better for overall health, and all the ingredients necessary are most likely already your the house!

Instead of spring cleaning with store-bought items this year, try making your own at home. Here is a recipe for a natural all-purpose cleaner that's great for all surfaces, except wood and glass!


Any pure essential oil can be used, but tea tree is the top choice since it works as as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti fungal, and antiviral! Spilt the oil 50/50 with eucalyptus oil to add extra cleaning qualities that help stop mold, fight allergies, and even repel rats.
