A Recipe for You: “Grime Go Away” Surface Spray 

 by Andrea Butje

Tea Tree and Lemon are some of the most trustworthy natural cleaners in the essential oil world. This recipe combines them in a base of Tea Tree hydrosol (which is a powerful cleaner all by itself) and a splash of vinegar.

  • 14 oz (420 ml) Tea Tree hydrosol (Melaleuca alternifolia)

  • 2 oz (60 ml) vinegar

  • 40 drops Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)

  • 30 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)

Make this blend in a 16 oz (480 ml) spray bottle. (I generally like using glass, but for cleaning products I usually suggest PET plastic—it’s known as a non-reactive plastic that doesn’t leach.) Spray “Grime Go Away” liberally on your surfaces. In areas that are especially grimy, you might want to let it sit for a minute before scrubbing it away with a sponge or rag.


I recommend making this blend fresh every few weeks.
