Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Household
What you'll need
  • ½ tsp washing soda
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 squirt of washing-up liquid
  • Spray bottle
  • (Optional: Several drops of eucalyptus oil or tea tree oil)
  1. I put all the ingredients into the bottle, swoosh it around to dissolve the washing soda and use.

I use it on my stove top all the time and honestly I have NEVER used anything that cuts through stove top grease like this stuff, especially homemade! I use it to clean my oven (but it won’t do the job if you haven’t cleaned your oven for over 6 months, I know this from experience!). Sometimes I will need to use the scourer for baked on tough spots but most of the time I simply swipe with a paper towel.

I have yet to come across a use-by date for Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner. It lasts for months and months in my cupboard.

I make up two spray bottles up. One for the kitchen and one for the bathroom/ laundry. I put a couple of drops of tea tree oil in the bathroom one for its antiseptic/ disinfectant properties.

Unfortunately when I tried to clean windows and mirrors with this Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner it left streaks on the windows and mirrors, but vinegar and water will get that job done 🙂
