Eucalyptus - Tea Tree Cleaning Spray

There are a lot of recipes that use a mix of vinegar and water to make a household cleaning spray. It can be quite effective, but this simple spray cleaner takes it a step further by adding the combined the antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral properties of tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils. 

Eucalyptus - Tea Tree Cleaning Spray

To make this you will need:

Combine all the ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake well before using.

To use spray on kitchen or bathroom surfaces like sinks, showers or bench tops, then wipe with a clean cloth.

Stored in a cool place, out of direct sunlight the spray will keep for at least 12 months.

Note: if you prefer not to use vodka leave it out. Instead increase the quantity of water to 1½ cups .

  1. Very interesting! Thank you for sharing at Dishing It & Digging It!

  2. I make a very similar cleaner and love it... I plan to modify mine a bit after seeing yours. Thank you. :)

  3. I bet this smells amazing! Thanks for sharing it at the #WasteLessWednesday Blog Hop.

  4. I'm slightly disappointed - somehow I thought that this would tell me how to make it out of the plant I grow.

    1. The recipe is based on essential oils rather than directly using parts of the tree. Eucaylyptus leaves do have a wonderfully distinctive smell, but both it and Tea Tree get so large we don't have the garden space to grow them.

  5. I'm always looking for a good natural cleaner. I will have to try this one. Thank you for sharing at Link It Up Wednesday!

  6. I love tea tree oil! Thanks for sharing on Homestead Blog Hop!
