My Favorite All Purpose Cleaner
I love this natural all purpose household cleaner!
One day I was cleaning my counter and decided I did not want to breath in such strong fumes anymore. Seriously, if I inhaled too deeply while I was cleaning I would cough. That doesn’t seem like a healthy thing. So I started looking for some more natural, but still effective, solutions.
There are some good natural cleaners out there (and a lot of not so good ones), but they usually end up costing more too. I made some of my own cleaners with great success too! Adding essential oils made them even better.
Then I figured I might as well try the cleaner concentrate made by my favorite essential oil company! There was a special discount on it one month a while back, so people that had already tried it were talking about how much they love it. One lady wrote about how she cleans houses professionally and a client asked her to use only the dōTERRA On Guard® Cleaner Concentrate, so she did. She fell in love with it and had to get some of her own!
This cleaner concentrate includes the high quality essential oils in the dōTERRA On Guard Protective Blend – Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. These oils do more than just smell good, they help provide natural protection against environmental factors and improve cleaning capability.
Then they throw in plant-based derivatives that really help to provide a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odors. Safe for the whole fam and the environment!
It works perfectly for my kitchen counters. Cleans well, easy to use, and no streaks. Even better, it ends up costing less than many kitchen cleaning products, even the ones with strong fumes.
Formula 409 32 oz, $2.88 = $0.09/oz
On Guard Cleaner 24 oz, $1.20 = $0.05/oz
The On Guard cleaner concentrate is $14.50 wholesale, which is about $0.60 per tablespoon. For the kitchen cleaner, I add 1 to 2 tablespoons to a 24-ounce spray bottle of water, so it comes to about $1.20 per bottle. Natural and non-toxic! It really cleans up those surfaces, plus it supports healthy immune function. (I use the On Guard oil blend when I feel like we need some more immune support in our lives, which is often.)
Definitely worth noting – I actually get a good amount of dōTERRA products for free or discounted, so I end up paying less than wholesale prices on average. Hooray! You can too! Email me at seekingwellness at fabulesslyfrugal dot com for more info.
