Well, although my kids are grown with kids of their own, I do have one dog and three cats plus a husband. There is always something to be cleaned! And that is where Thieves Household Cleaner comes in!
My husband’s work clothes. The fingerprints on doors and moldings. Cat “ick” on the furniture or floor.
Before I met Thieves, I had a cabinet full of cleaners for windows, floors, stainless steel, stovetops. You name it. After I met Thieves, that cabinet contains one little basket with only Thieves in it!
So what is so impressive about Thieves Household Cleaner? Well, read on to learn more!
Thieves Household Cleaner – Why I Switched
Before Thieves, I had no idea of the chemicals lurking in our home, particularly in the cleaners we used. During my journey with cancer and removing toxins from the home, I watched “What’s Under Your Sink”? and promptly threw all other cleaners away.
Lung.org even says “Many cleaning supplies or household products can irritate the eyes or throat, or cause headaches and other health problems, including cancer. Some products release dangerous chemicals, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Other harmful ingredients include ammonia and bleach.”
This cleaner does everything. There’s no need for fifteen chemical-filled cleaners in our home. Just one, all-natural, non-toxic, plant-based cleaner.
So, What is Thieves Household Cleaner?
It’s made with 100% plant- and mineral-based ingredients, including therapeutic-grade Thieves and Lemon essential oils (the highest quality and purity essential oils) for natural cleaning….
Vegetable-based surfactants like alkyl polyglucoside that are compliant with Green Seal and EPA Design for Environment (DfE) standards…
Biodegradable cutting agents like sodium methyl 2-sulfolaurate and disodium 2-sulfolaurate from renewable sources (both ingredients rated 0 on a 10 point scale on the Environmental Working Group’s health hazard score – which is the best score possible)!

Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrate. For most general cleaning, just dilute 30 parts of water to 1 part of Thieves. For example, put one capful of Thieves into a glass spray bottle and add water.
That one 14.4 bottle of cleaner concentrate will give you 85 teaspoons of cleaner. With approximately one teaspoon per solution, that comes out to about .36 per bottle of cleaner! Wait. What???
That is waaaay cheaper than any cleaner, commercial or all-natural, that you can find anywhere else.
BUT there’s a way to save even more money. I can help you to get wholesale pricing to save even more. With a wholesale membership, you’ll pay just .28 cents per bottle and get wholesale pricing on all Young Living essential oils, cleaning products, vitamins, supplements, personal and animal care products and much more.
