How To Make An All Natural Surface Cleaner

How To Make An All Natural Surface Cleaner

Need a super effective surface cleaner that’s ready to take on all the dirt and grime? This all-natural, easy surface cleaner recipe blends organic, eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol with a refreshing, 100% pure essential oil.

Organic Sugarcane Alcohol is sustainably sourced and made from all-natural and organic ethanol, gluten-free, 190 Proof Sugarcane Alcohol, which is perfect for killing viruses on surfaces.

Essential oils are great for more than just relaxing and reducing stress (although those are huge pluses). They also offer antibacterial properties that add to the potent cleansing abilities of this recipe.

We highly recommend the California lemon essential oil or blood orange essential oil in this all-natural DIY surface cleaner, but if you’d like a specific scented surface cleaner, you have the creative freedom to use a fragrance oil, too!

Not only will this surface cleaner thoroughly cleanse surfaces around the house, but it will also look really good in gorgeous, translucent, amber-colored bottles for an elevated and aesthetically pleasing display. 

The best part? You know exactly what’s in your surface cleaner so there’s no need to worry about toxic chemicals. Cleaning supplies truly never looked or worked so well!
