how to make Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

Spring cleaning takes on a whole new meaning this season. Many of us are getting into a new level of deep cleaning. Now is the perfect time to whip up this homemade all-purpose cleaner with things found in the pantry or fridge.

The ladies behind CAP Beauty know a thing or two about lightening our daily toxic load. “Like with our beauty products, we don’t focus on the danger of the ingredients in conventional products, but on the power of plants, minerals and Mother Nature.”

Combine the ingredients in a glass spray bottle, shake to combine and use.

Glass Cleaner
This simple yet effective cleaner has been used by even the most accomplished cleaners since the beginning of time. As simple as it gets.


2 cups filtered water
2 Tbsp vinegar

  1. So excited that there is more and more awareness and education about making safer and simpler products, in all areas. One quick thing: hydrogen peroxide can damage the sealant used on granite countertops. So, I would use as a stain remover on these surfaces; but not as a daily all purpose cleaner.

  2. Thanks for posting this! In a time where cleaning products are becoming harder to find in these uncertain times, it’s nice to see these DIY make-your-own cleaners that are easy to do using mostly at home ingredients. Hope to see more of this sort of thing in the coming weeks!
