I’ve been using vinegar as a natural cleaner for a while now, since Pond and Rory like to lick everything in sight. When we adopted both of them I decided I wanted to transition into natural cleaners to keep them healthier. I tried a bunch of different natural cleaners from the store but I just didn’t like the way they cleaned. So I decided to try vinegar as a cleaner.
Using just vinegar as a cleaner kind of makes your house smell like a pickle factory for a little bit; I came up with this cleaner mixture to ease the smell when you use it. The essential oils mask a lot of the vinegar smell and the citrus oils helps loosen gunk.
You can use this cleaner on just about anything. I’ve used it on counters, stove tops, windows and glass, and bathroom fixtures. I find this to pretty much be a multi-purpose cleaner
