Nontoxic Surface Cleaner Recipes

The beginning of the year is a great time to start cleaning out your home of all the unwanted and unnecessary toxins.

We recommend first eliminating the cleaners under your sinks (countertop spray, window/mirror cleaner, toilet cleaner, furniture spray, etc) and replacing them with a nontoxic household cleaner that will get ALL the jobs done with only ONE simple bottle, for less than $1/bottle!

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not!

Thieves Household Cleaner is a plant-based, nontoxic cleaner that’s safe for your whole family…and it will replace all of your household cleaners – It works well on windows, countertops (yes, even marble and granite), toilets, mirrors, appliances (yep, stainless steel too), furniture (you guessed it…even wood), etc. ALL. THE. SURFACES.

This is our favorite option because it eliminates the toxins AND the clutter under your sink!!!

Alternatively, you can make a few different homemade recipes that will help to eliminate the toxins under your sink.

This will require a few different recipes for different areas of your home, but let’s keep it simple, moms – if you want to go this route instead of the Thieves Household Cleaner, start by making a surface spray that can clean many surfaces in your home. We will share alternative cleaner recipes for your windows, mirrors, stoves, ovens, etc. another time.


VinEOgar Surface Cleaner



  • Add all of the ingredients into a 16oz. spray bottle (use a funnel, if needed).
  • Gently shake to combine.
  • Spray on all the surfaces (see notes below).


  • If you add the squeezed lemon, you will need to store this in the fridge between uses. 
  • This vinegar-based cleaner should not be used on granite or marble.

CastilEO Surface Cleaner



  • Add the water into a 16oz. spray bottle (use a funnel, if needed).
  • Add the castile soap and essential oil.
  • Gently shake.


  • May be stored at room temperature.
  • May be used on granite and marble.
  • Wipe with a damp cloth after spraying this cleaner to prevent a soapy residue.


  • Countertops (DO NOT use the vinegar recipe on granite or marble surfaces, castile recipe is fine for these though)
  • Dust surfaces using the cleaner + a microfiber cloth
  • Knobs, Lightswitches
  • Appliance surfaces
  • Toilets (surface and inside bowl)
  • Tubs, Sinks
  • Toys
