I don’t know about you, but when the new year rolls around, I get super motivated to clean and organize. I wish this lasted all year, but of course it doesn’t. Why not capitalize on it when we have the motivation though, right? We got granite countertops a few years ago and I had been using my homemade all purpose cleaner until I realized that some of the ingredients are not ideal for natural granite. So, I searched for a homemade and all natural solution for a granite-safe cleaner that is a fraction of the cost of the store bought kind. Most of the recipes I found call for dish detergent, but I wanted to see if I could make a completely natural version. I think I came up with a pretty good DIY granite cleaner recipe and so far, It has been making my countertops sparkle! It works on tile and other surfaces as well, so you can really go town with this stuff.
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 empty spray bottle
- 1/3 cup rubbing alcohol
- 3-4 drops Dr. Bronner’s Soap
- 10 drops essential oil
- 3 cups water
Mix all of the ingredients together in the spray bottle and you are ready to clean! How is that for a DIY granite cleaner that is all natural?
I used orange scented Dr. Bronner’s soap and orange essential oil. It smells so fresh when I clean! I’m a big fan of saving money by mixing up my own cleaning products.
