Natural All Purpose Spray Recipe

This is an easy to make spray that can be used anywhere in the home but works really nicely in the kitchen. I use it on my kitchen table, counters, and appliances. It removes grease and cleans well. The fresh lemon scent is perfect all year round and won’t compete with any lovely baking smells going on in your home. Remember vinegar and stone doesn’t mix, so if you have gorgeous marble or stone counters replace the vinegar with 1 tbsp. of castile soap instead.


1 ¼ cups water

½ cup white vinegar

10 drops lemon essential oil

one drop of glycerine (optional, emulsifies the oils) 


Combine all the ingredients in a spray bottle (preferably glass although I have been reusing old plastic spray bottles). Shake and use within 2 months.
