Looking for a way to clean your house and leave it smelling terrific? This DIY thieves cleaner is easy to make and great to clean with!
I recently started seeing a new chiropractor, her office is just lovely and always smells really nice. I mentioned it to her on my last visit and asked if there was something specific she used. I assumed she was burning candles, or diffusing essential oil…something.
Well she wasn’t. She said she gets asked that question all the time, and the reason it smells so good is what she cleans with….
Thieves cleaner. She has a spray bottle she mixes it up in and then goes to town cleaning the tables, door knobs, walls, bathrooms…. everything. Leaving a lovely fragrance behind.
She was kind enough to let me know what she mixes up so I could make some and clean my house with it!
And now, my friends, I am sharing it with you!
I decided not to only make thieves cleaner but to also make carpet freshener too!!
It is so simple, non-toxic, and smells awesome.
Here’s what you’ll need for both thieves cleaner and carpet freshener-
For the Spray cleaner-
1- Cup Vinegar
1- Cup Filtered or Distilled Water
A spray bottle- You can use any spray bottle, but essential oils are best kept in dark bottles.(Mine is from Amazon)
This is super simple. Add your vinegar, water and oil into your spray bottle. Twist on the lid and give it a good shake. That’s it! Now you are ready to clean! Initially you’ll smell vinegar, don’t worry, that “we just dyed Easter eggs” smell will dissipate pretty quickly and the smell of the oils will be left!
For the Carpet Refresher-
1- Cup Baking Soda
15-20 Drops Thieves Oil blend
A Jar for mixing
This one is even easier. Put about 1/2 of your baking soda in a jar and add in 10 drops of oil, add in the rest of your baking soda, and another 5-10 drops of oil. Give it a stir or shake. I like to let this sit for a few hours before using it so that the oil has a chance to really sink into the baking soda.
To use sprinkle it on the carpet and let sit for 10-15 minutes, then vacuum it up!
Now when people come to your house they’ll ask what smells so good! You can let them in on the secret of the thieves cleaner if you want!
