How to Make Thieves® Cleaner

Thieves Cleaner!


Over my years of DIY tinkering I’ve created over a hundred body care, culinary, and green cleaning recipes. Some I love seasonally, others come and go for one reason or another, and some shining stars remain a constant in my everyday life. One member of this VIP list is a “Four Thieves®” multi-surface spray. It’s easy to make, and its versality means that it earns its keep in my natural cleaning supply closet. It also smells fresh and invigorating and cuts grease with the likes of commercially available soaps and sprays.

Mountain Rose Herbs posted their version of the Thieves® essential oil blend many years ago, and it has been used for autumnal diffuser blends, hand sanitizer sprays and gels, and now thanks to some added alcohol, water, and soap, the perfect multi-purpose spray.


Where to Use Thieves® Multi-Purpose Spray

  • Kitchen Counters
  • Glass or Tile Tabletops
  • Sinks
  • Toilets

*This recipe is not intended for use on wood surfaces.
