Once again, I referenced the Young Living Blog for dilution ratios. The infographic from their blog is included below for reference.

I picked up an industrial strength spray bottle from my local hardware store and mixed up the cleaner according to the dilution ratio for the All Purpose Spray on the YL infographic.
Once it was mixed up, I set to work on our bathroom. Just like with the glass cleaner, I was interested to see how well this would actually work. I tested it out on our bathroom sinks first. I sprayed everything down and cleaned the sink using a rag and a small scrub brush to get into the hard to reach spots - the drain and behind the faucet. The sink looked great! The water spots, liquid soap drips and toothpaste marks all came up with ease.
Next up: the tubs. Our bathroom doesn't get a lot of natural ventilation and we have hard water. I had recently started noticing some spots on our tile and build up on our shower head. I sprayed down the tile and shower head, and since I wasn't sure how much elbow grease I was going to have to put into this, I let it set a minute while I cleaned the toilet. I came back to the shower with a scrub brush and rag and set to work. It did take a little more scrubbing than on the sinks, but I was able to get the spots off and the build up off the shower head.

So far, I'm happy with this all purpose cleaner. It did take a little extra scrubbing on the super dirty spots, so I'm wondering if I should try a different dilution ratio for those situations, but I was definitely able to get everything cleaned with this version.

Plus, I'm very excited that my cleaning bucket has gone from this:
to this: 

I'm so happy to be getting rid of cleaners that are full of chemicals and to have natural cleaning solutions. Plus, my bucket is lighter to carry around :)
