The cleaning power of Thieves household cleaner is awesome and it is one of my favorite Young Living products that I use every day. I have bottles of this refreshing nontoxic cleaner in the kitchen, the laundry room, and upstairs bathrooms. I actually bring this with us when we airbnb it on our travels. I can’t take the smell of toxic cleaning products anymore!
To use Thieves cleaner as an all-purpose cleaner, dilution is 1 to 30. I got the spray bottle in the photo at TJMaxx for $1.99. You can also get spray bottles in the dollar store. For around the house, I like the large heavy duty spray bottles you can get at Lowes like this one. To make your all-purpose spray:
- Add one capful of Thieves household cleaner to the spray bottle. For larger spray bottles that are 32 ounces for an all-purpose cleaner you only need 2 capfuls of thieves cleaner.
- For fragrance, add 5-10 drops of essential oil to a small spray bottle or 15-25 drops for a larger one, according to your olfactory sense desires! Thieves cleaner does not really have a scent, so I add my own. Having experimented with a bunch of scents – spearmint, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemon essential oils are among my favorites to add. While these oils also possess cleaning properties, you don’t need it for that, thieves cleaner packs enough of a punch, I just love the refreshing and uplifting scent!
- Fill to the top with water.
- Twist on the spray top and you’re done!
And that’s it! These make great gifts and I hear over and over how people love using them. This is the size I gift and take with me when airbnbing it. For around the house, I use the large plastic spray bottles that hold 32 fl oz (4 cups), for that use 2 capfuls of the thieves cleaner.
Also, Thieves household cleaner can be used for stain removal. I have used it for all sorts of stains from beetroot juice to strawberry to marker.
