Winter has come and gone and with it went our messy households. That’s right. Spring cleaning is underway for many of us at EG. And this year, we have a secret weapon: The DIY All-Purpose Citrus Cleaner.
Developed to combine the grease-fighting, germ-ridding, immune-supportive benefits of Grapefruit, Key Lime and Lemon oils with simple, natural cleaning ingredients, this cleaner is your ticket to a home that sparkles and shines – naturally, of course. Not to mention, the uplifting aroma of this cleaner will put a smile on your face that’s hard to erase.
This All-Purpose Citrus Cleaner contains six ingredients. You read that correctly – just six! And three of those ingredients are essential oils. You can also replace Grapefruit, Key Lime and Lemon with essential oils of your choosing, like our Cleaning, Purify or Citrus Cream blends. But we recommend trying this cleaner’s custom, citrusy-clean blend before deciding. Trust us, it’s worth diffusing on its own.
What You Need
3.5 oz Distilled water
2 oz Grain alcohol (190 proof)
2 oz White vinegar
10 ml Grapefruit
5 ml Key Lime
5 ml Lemon
8 oz PET plastic (or) glass spray bottle
Combine grain alcohol and essential oils by stirring vigorously. Add to spray bottle, along with water and vinegar. Shake well to combine. Spray onto EO-safe counters and surfaces and wipe away grime with a clean sponge or rag.
Note: We recommend testing on an inconspicuous area before spraying liberally to ensure this formula is safe for surfaces in your home. Vinegar is generally not recommended to be used on marble, quartz, granite and wood.
