Alternative to Chemical Cleaners Thieves Household Cleaner

Clean up - E. Jean Homestead

This month we are going all in with a natural all-purpose cleaner. We tried some samples of Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner before and really like it. So far, we have only used it in the kitchen. Now that we have more on hand, we can start to see how we like it in other areas of the house.

Switching to Thieves Household Cleaner aligns with the goals that we’ve set for our family. If you missed my post on our Four Goals to Simplify Life, be sure to check it out!


Thieves Household Cleaner is a naturally derived, plant-based multipurpose cleaning solution offered by Young Living. That is what I like about it. It fits what we are trying to accomplish. We want to replace the chemicals with more natural options.


Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrate. The 14.4 fl oz bottle of cleaner requires dilution before using. There are various dilution ratios to fit the surface or cleaning need. Dilution ratios:

  • Most cleaning applications – 30 parts water to 1 part cleaner
  • Heavy degreasing – 15 parts water to 1 part cleaner
  • Light degreasing – 50 parts water to 1 part cleaner
  • Glass – 50 or 100 parts water to 1 part cleaner

With the strong appeal to save some extra money, I decided to become a member by purchasing the Thieves Premium Starter Kit. By becoming a member, I can take advantage of exclusive member pricing on all Young Living products. The starter kit included:

  • Thieves® 15-ml
  • Thieves® AromaBright™ Toothpaste
  • Thieves® Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash
  • 2 Thieves® Household Cleaner
  • 2 Thieves® Foaming Hand Soap
  • 2 Thieves® Spray
  • 3 Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier
  • Stress Away™ 5-ml
  • AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment
  • Thieves® Mints
  • 2 NingXia Red® 2-oz. samples
  • Essential Oil Magazine

I am already obsessed with the toothpaste. My mouth feels so clean after using it and I love it! However, I will avoid going off on a tangent; just expect more specific reviews on the other products that were included in the kit.

Since the cleaner is a concentrate, I purchased some bottles to make it easier to use. This variety pack from Amazon offers different size glass containers including four roller balls. The largest (16 oz) bottles are perfect for the Thieves Household Cleaner. We keep a bottle under the kitchen sink for quick and easy access.

My purpose for becoming an Young Living Independent Member was knowing that I will be buying many more products as time goes on. As a result, I can get the best price and continue to try new products that progress up toward our goal of natural living.
