Basic Natural Cleaner

  • Equal parts vinegar and water

  • A few drops of essential oil of choice, optional

1. Add vinegar, water and essential oil, if desired, to a spray bottle.

2. Place the spray nozzle on the bottle and shake well to mix solution.

3. Spray on counter, cutting board, or sink and faucet and wipe dry with a cloth.


You can skip the commercial essential oil and infuse your solution with free essential oil from a left-over slice of orange or lemon peel. Each week after food prep. toss a peel in your bottle of vinegar to steep.

The alkalinity of baking soda and the acidy of the vinegar neutralize. So it's best not to mix the two for a disinfectant application. Mixing the two is appropriate as a scrubbing medium, for items such as an oven or stovetop.
