Tips for using Thieves Household Cleaner
Thieves Household Cleaner is safe to use at a 15:1 dilution or higher for most non-porous surfaces. One capful of Thieves Household Cleaner is equal to approximately ½ tablespoon, so ½ cup of water mixed with one capful of cleaner yields a 15:1 dilution.
Most cleaning applications use 30 parts water to 1 part Thieves Household Cleaner—more concentrated dilutions may be necessary for some uses.
For best results, mix only the amount of cleaner that you will need to use right away.
Before using Thieves Household Cleaner, do a small spot test in an inconspicuous location, especially on wood, plastic, fabric, and granite.
Do not use this product on soft plastics or vinyl.
