I love my essential oils for cleaning. It gives me the peace of mind that I’m cleaning my house without any harsh chemicals, which is important since I have lots of kiddos running around. I know that you can make your own thieves cleaner by using 2 drops of thieves to 2 oz of distilled water. To make 10 oz, this would cost you $1.50 and I’m all about saving money. So please, do yourself a favor, purchase the “Thieves Household Cleaner”. Save your self some time & money. The recipe I use only costs me $0.88 for an entire 32 oz. SOOOO worth it!
1- I mix up my Thieves cleaner. I do one capful of cleaner to 32 oz of water in a spray bottle. This will give you about a 1:60 dilution of the cleaner.
2 – I spray my nasty grout with the cleaner.
3 – I sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on the grout. This acts as an abrasive and really cuts down on your scrubbing time.
4 – Depending on how nasty the grout is, I will leave the cleaner on, to allow it to do it’s job. I don’t want to do more work than I have to and with Thieves Cleaner, I have to do very little
5 – To finish up, I use a damp rag and wipe off the grout. If you’re doing this in your shower, you could just rinse the walls.
6 – Finally, stand back and enjoy your clean grout. Maybe give yourself a break before you start finding other things you can clean with this awesome cleaner!! I promise you won’t regret it!!
