Being on crutches for the past few weeks has really thrown a wrench into my routine. Since going to the grocery store is more of production on crutches, I usually end up getting just the things we absolutely need and putting the rest off for another trip. But invariably I will put something off for a bit too long, and then I’m left scrambling.
But it’s exactly these kinds of situations that make me happy that I stock up on my 10 favorite “superstar” cleaning ingredients. (I even have an entire post on the subject! Check out the link below.)

Keeping a few simple cleaning ingredients on hand will allow you to make all sorts of cleaning concoctions on a moment’s notice. Like the All-Purpose Cleaning Spray that I’m sharing with you today! This super-simple spray was a recent discovery, and I’ve found that it’s great for everyday tasks like wiping down counters, cupboards, and sinks. It’s also great at powering through sticky, greasy messes! Here’s how to make it.
Natural All-Purpose Spray Cleaner
- Glass spray bottle
- 1 tsp borax
- 1/2 tsp washing soda
- 1 tsp castile soap
- 18 drops essential oils (We used 10 drops of lemon oil and 8 drops of sweet orange oil, but feel free to use what you like!)
Add the borax, washing soda, and castile soap to the glass bottle.
Pour two cups of hot water into the bottle, and shake well to incorporate the ingredients.
After mixing, remove the top and add the essential oils to the spray bottle. Replace the top, then shake lightly again.
Using Your All-Purpose Cleaner Spray
This spray is perfect for cleaning up greasy smears and smudges. The washing soda cuts through tough grease, and the essential oils will add a beautiful shine.
Use it in the bathroom, on your kitchen counters, on your walls, and on your appliances for a thorough, all-natural clean!
