Around here - Miracle Spray Recipe

I'm getting super organized with my DIY cleaning and have made some more laundry powder this morning which takes me less than one minute in the Thermomix to make.  I make it in batches and I made 4 batches so all up less than 10 minutes work and I have a large container of home made laundry powder.  You can get the laundry powder recipe from this blog post and if you don't have a Thermomix you could grate your soap or use a food processor.

On the back of the Lectric Washing Soda packet you will find the recipe for "Miracle Spray" which was featured on our A Current Affair TV show a while back.  This is an all purpose cleaner to cut through grease and grime in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry - or anywhere around the home.


  • 1.5 Litres of Water [1 cup of this needs to be boiled]
  • 300ml vinegar
  • 60ml dishwashing liquid
  • 25ml eucalyptus oil
  • 30gms [ie 3 dessertspoons washing soda]


  • Mix washing soda with 1 cup of boiling water to dissolve.
  • Add remainder of ingredients and pour into a 2 Litre bottle.
  • Decant into spray bottles as required.
NOTE - Do not use on aluminium.

Making your own cleaning products at home are super cheap and once you have the ingredients, super quick as well.  Additive Free Lifestyle have a DIY Made Easy self paced course that you can do with lots of information about harmful products that are in the supermarket cleaning products.  Lots of recipes and you have immediate access.  As soon as the girls released this course I bought it and refer to it all the time.


  1. I found this recipe years ago on Wendy's blog. I love it!

    1. Yes, that's how I first heard about it too.
