All Natural DIY Granite Cleaner Recipe

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 called 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.

Empty spray bottle, rubbing alcohol, Dr. Bronner's soap, and essential oils

Homemade Granite Cleaner

Here’s what you will need:

Add all of the ingredients to the bottle. Start with the rubbing alcohol, then add your drops of soap and essential oil.

Fill to the top of the bottle with water – making sure not to overfill. It should be about 2 1/2 cups.

Shake all of the ingredients together (gently) 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. My DIY granite cleaner smells so fresh when I clean! I’m a big fan of saving money by mixing up my own cleaning products. Do you do that too?

Does the orange essential oil contain citric acid? Wouldn’t this cause etching on granite or marble? Love the idea of the smell of orange but don’t want to damage the granite. Thank you!

Hi Ashley! I looked online and several articles say that orange and lemon essential oils don't have citric acid. My feeling is that even if they had a little bit, it's so diluted that it wouldn't make a difference. I used this recipe on my counters for years and never saw any etching. Now I live in a home with quartz and use it on that too :)
