We all use cleaners in our home. We love for them to be effective, smell great, and be reasonably priced.

Unfortunately quite often, household cleaning products contain ingredients that are carcinogens, asthma instigators, and straight up poison, which makes the costs high even if the price is cheap.

You can do some research on this yourself. The Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization focused on the environment and public health, has a website that lists the safety information of common household products you use to clean your home.

Phthalates which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens are in a lot of cleaners.

Thieves Cleaner by Young Living contains two sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. Instead of Phthalates, These all-natural and safe sulfates that work as surfactants, sticking to the surface and grabs the dirt & grease and can be rinsed easily.

This cleaner can be used anywhere in your home at different dilutions. You will find a lot of different recipes on this website that help you use your Thieves Household Cleaner in a variety of ways.

Thieves Cleaner is highly concentrated so you only need about a capful of this all-purpose cleaner in about one cup of water. With this ratio, one small bottle will yield you about 29 spray bottles at 16 ounces each of safe all-purpose cleaner. That means it’s under $1 for one spray bottle.

I love making my own cleaning products and especially this soft scrub version. It cleans my shower with little effort and I don’t have to risk my health to do it.
