THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER
If you want to simplify the task of replacing every cleaner in your home… say hello to your answer! Thieves Household Cleaner will give you effective, smell good and safe results on every single surface you want to clean. Here are some of the benefits of choosing this product.
One bottle of the concentrate makes THIRTY sixteen ounce bottles of all purpose cleaner. That makes it less than $1 a bottle. You can add it to your ER Orders to make it even cheaper … while earning freebies! WINS EVERYWHERE for your budget.
It takes about twenty seconds to throw it together in a bottle and it looks pretty on the counter. (Ha! But, seriously.)
It’ll open up the cabinet under your sink. Think of all the other things you can put in there when it isn’t taken up by a dozen different cleaners!
It simplifies your cleaning routine. One cleaner. For ALL the things!
It’s safe for your entire family which means you can invite everyone into the cleaning chores without worrying they’re touching, breathing in or even tasting synthetic chemicals that’ll harm them.
It’s safe for the environment and your pets!
Sprinkle some Thieves Dishwasher Powder on the surface you want to scrub and spray some Thieves Household Cleaner on top. Let it soak for a few minutes and scrub it clean with a sponge or towel.
If you have carpet… make a deodorizer and cleaner by mixing twenty drops of oils with 1/4 cup of baking soda! Sprinkle it on the carpet, let it sit for fifteen to twenty minutes and then vacuum it up. You can do this with your mattresses, too! Our favorite oils are Purification + Lemon, Thieves + Lemon and Lavender + Eucalyptus.
If you have hard floors… invest in a refillable mop and use two cap-fulls of Thieves Household Cleaner in the reservoir and fill it up with water. Enjoy knowing your feet aren’t absorbing the stuff that harms as you walk on super clean, amazing smelling floors! PS - We love the mop featured in our Oiler Must Haves page. Click HERE to shop.
Yes, friend… our Thieves Household Cleaner is amazing for glass! So vacuum up your sills and screens and give the window panes and ledges a good wipe-down with your All Purpose Thieves Cleaner (recipe above). If you’re still getting streaks… spray and gently wipe them with a solution of 1:1 vinegar after cleaning and water and they’ll shine!
The spring is a great time to detail your vehicles but you deserve better than the products at the car wash. They’re filled with synthetic fragrances and you’ll expose yourself and your family to them in high concentrations in such a small space. Use the baking soda trick found above under FLOORS for your carpet and upholstery and vacuum everything well. Spray your dash, doors and windows down with your All Purpose Thieves Cleaner (recipe above). Clean the outside by filling your bucket with two cap-fulls of Thieves Household Cleaner and a few tablespoons of Thieves Dish Soap. It works great, the run-off is better for the environment and you can even get your little to help since the products are safe!
We did a series on our blog recently featuring the three ways you can ditch and switch in your laundry room! It’s SO easy, cost effective and important. Here are links to the three articles you’ll want to read to make sure the clothes, sheets and towels that touch your skin all day are helping instead of harming!
