I had been searching for a cleaner to use on my granite and marble counter tops that had safe, non-toxic ingredients when it dawned on me that I should just make my own. This recipe is easy to make, inexpensive and best of all it’s completely safe! You won’t have to worry about any toxic residue being left on your counter tops or any unhealthy fumes lingering in your home. In fact, this cleaning spray will leave a pleasant aroma!
The cleaning component in this recipe is the castile soap. Castile soap is an all natural, plant-based soap. It comes in both liquid and solid form. This recipe calls for liquid castile soap. Liquid castile soap is concentrated and should be diluted with water. You can find castile soap at most grocery stores these days.
I use essential oils to impart a fresh scent. My recipe calls for lemon, lavender and rosemary essential oils. This is one of my favorite blends for a fresh, clean home scent.
I use this spray to clean my kitchen and bathroom counter tops. To use, simply spray on the surface and wipe with a clean cloth.
