All Natural, Plant Based Cleaner

I recently got the dōTERRA On Guard® Cleaner Concentrate in my LRP order.  This is my first time ordering this and I was excited to give it a try.  Before I go into how it stood up to cleaning in my house, here is information on the product itself.

Key Ingredients:
• Proprietary dōTERRA On Guard Protective Blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary CPTG essential oil provides natural protection by keeping surrounding areas clean and safe
 • Plant-based surfactants help improve the cleaning process as well as contribute to a product that is safe for you, your family, and the environment
 • No preservatives added, helping to provide a safe and effective household cleaning product

dōTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate is designed to be the ideal natural cleaner. It is fortified with the proprietary dōTERRA On Guard Protective Blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary CPTG® essential oils, which provide natural protection against certain environmental factors while elevating the overall cleaning capability. This powerful essential oil blend is combined with plant-based derivatives that provide a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odors, so it is safe for loved ones as well as the environment. The multi-purpose capabilities of dōTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate make it perfect to expertly clean hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, or any room, leaving behind a clean and invigorating scent.

 Mix 2 tbsp of concentrate per 24 oz. of water. BATHROOMS: Mix 3 tbsp of concentrate per 24 oz. of water. DISHES: Mix 3 tbsp of concentrate per gallon of water. TOUGH JOBS: Apply concentrate directly on designated area and let soak. Avoid direct use of concentrate on hardwood floors and natural stone.

As soon as I received the cleaner I was excited to test it out.  I quickly got a new 24 oz spray bottle and mixed up a batch.  First test was just the kitchen counters.  Cleaned great and smelled great.  Not over powering smell and it cut the grease and stickiness of a typical day in my house.

Next test.......  The cat spilled a glass of almond milk.....  Counter wipe up again and then I decided to test it on the laminate floor I have.   Now I have done a quick wipe in the past with stuff and I end up with residue or sticky floors the next morning.  I got up this morning and checked the spot.  NO residue and no stickiness.   So next test lets mop the floor.

I dry swept the floor and then grabbed my microfiber mop and spray bottle and set to work.  Initial impression was great.  It cleaned the floor very well.  We have 3 kids, 2 dogs and a cat.  So my floors take a beating.  So while this floor dried I took to the vinyl floor and cleaned and scrubbed it by hand with the cleaner as well.  

Once the kitchen laminate was dried was the true test.  Barefooted I walked on the floor no stickiness!!!!!  Yay!!!  Turned the lights on, no residue and no streaking!!!!!   Triple plus in my book because these are all HUGE issues with my flooring.  

Excited back to the vinyl and yup looked amazing and clean.  I took off to the girls bathroom with linoleum and scrubbed it and then back to wipe out the dog kennel.  Then the kitchen sink, the stove, and coffee area.  

When they say this is an all purpose cleaner it is!!  I have used it on EVERYTHING I can imagine so far in the house.  I am ready to try the shower and bathroom sink next.  

There is still time to get this product 10% off for the month of March if you want to try it!!  HEre is a link to go and purchase the product:
