Natural Kitchen Cleaning Recipes
This multipurpose cleaning spray contains white thyme essential oil for antibacterial properties.
  • Four 4 oz. Brushed Aluminum Bottles
  • 2 cups Distilled Water
  • 1 Tbs. Borax
  • 2 Tbs. White Vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol
  • 4 mL Lemon Essential Oil
  • 4 mL Optiphen ND
  • 3 mL White Thyme Essential Oil
  1. Heat the distilled water in a small heat safe container until warm (about 110-120 degrees). Add the borax powder and stir until it has fully dissolved.
  2. Add the vinegar and alcohol and stir in. Add the Optiphen ND. Add the essential oils and use a whisk to help the oils mix in to the water. Quickly pour the mixture into the spray bottles. Cap, and use!
NOTE: Because this recipe does not contain an emulsifier, you will need to shake the mixture before each use to mix in the essential oils evenly.
