Homemade Cleaning Spray

Making homemade cleaning sprays is easier than you think. Over the years we’ve made a variety of cleaning supplies including – laundry detergent, scouring powder, glass cleaner. You can get those recipes here. In this post, we will share our recipes for granite and bathroom spray cleaners.

Interest in making safe homemade cleaners has become more prevalent, in part due to the coronavirus pandemic. There is also a growing interest in knowing more about the chemical ingredients that we bring into our home. Making your own homemade cleaning spray is one way to know exactly what you are using to clean your home.

  • 1 3/4 cups of water
  • 1/3 cup 70% Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol)
  • 1/2 tsp. Castile Soap, Dawn, or other liquid soap
  • 20+ drops essential oil

NOTES:

You can smell the rubbing alcohol in this spray. If that scent bothers you, add more essential oils, or split the 1/3 cup of rubbing alcohol with vodka.

Lemon, grapefruit, rosemary, tea tree, or blood orange are suggested essential oils to use. Some great combos would be lemon & lavender, or blood orange & tea tree.
