Did you know you can make a household cleaner with natural ingredients? This recipe has been passed down for generations because it’s simple and effective!
The recipe for Vinegar of the Four Thieves has been passed down since the time of the Black Plague when thieves rubbed a mixture of herbs and vinegar on their bodies to protect themselves from death. Any number of herbs can be combined with raw apple cider vinegar to yield an effective household cleaning product. If you happen to have lots of a particular herb on hand feel free to adjust the recipe.

I recommend diluting at least 50/50 with either water or white vinegar. The solution can “gum up” and clog the spray bottle without dilution. This works to your advantage, making the recipe last even longer!
Pasteurized apple cider vinegar may be substituted but you will lose the microbial benefit of the raw vinegar. It will still be an effective cleaner.
