Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 5 tbsp Warm Water
  • 1 tbsp Borax
  • 2 tbsp Baking Soda
  • ½ cup Rubbing Alcohol
  • ½ cup Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 1 tbsp Dishwashing Soap
  • 5 drops Oregano Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree Oil


  • In a metal mixing bowl, mix all ingredients together and combine well with a whisk. The warm water should help the dish soap, baking soda, and borax powder dissolve together quickly.
  • Use a kitchen funnel to funnel the solution into your reusable or glass spray bottle. Shake well to combine all of the ingredients. That’s all! Now it’s ready to use. 
  • Make sure that you always shake the bottle before each use because the oils will tend to separate after the bottle has sat still. For heavy duty cleaning jobs and for sticky spills and stubborn grime, spray the solution generously and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes before wiping it away with a cleaning rag or scrub brush.
