Thieves® Household Cleaner is a great product, and I don't know why it's not the only household cleaning product sold on this planet! I was getting ready to put my house on the market and needed to clean my furnace from rust and calcium build-up due to my AC unit. I didn't have any type of rust-removing product and saw the bottle of Thieves. The results were remarkable. Not only did it remove the rust and calcium, it did so with little effort! It even worked on removing the rust from the concrete basement floor. I am pleased beyond words with this product and am finding more and more ways to use it! I love the fragrance and the fact that it's natural so I'm not inhaling toxic chemicals. Thanks for great products that make life better and healthier to live!
Living with three cats means there are pee accidents from time to time. One of my cats also likes to mark territory in the house. If you have cats you know what that can smell like. I've used commercial products claiming to remove the smell, but none has worked as well as Thieves Household Cleaner! I'm so relieved to have found something that removes the odor!

After my son spilled my daughter's nail polish in a large spot on the carpet, we thought it would never come out. We decided to try straight Thieves cleaner and there is no longer any nail polish!

We recently moved from California to Utah into a home that was built in the 1880's. It wasn't until I was deep cleaning that I realized there were some serious challenges!!
We'd moved to an area that had no other homes available for rent and I was panicked, since I'm extremely sensitive. There was nowhere else to go while our home is being built.
I immediately got out my Thieves Cleaner, Thieves Oil, Diffuser, and rubber gloves. I sprayed the Thieves Cleaner straight onto the affected areas and just left it for several hours. I began diffusing Thieves Oil - and did so for the next 48 hours. In the basement I sprayed a mixture of Thieves Oil and Thieves Cleaner directly onto the brick walls. Then I left the house to rest.
The next day when I came back the unsightly area had almost disappeared. I sprayed the affected areas again, soaking liberally, and wiped them down after a few minutes. Everything looked so much better! In the basement, the same thing had happened.
I coaxed the carpet cleaner to use my Thieves Cleaner instead of his citrus stuff. He reluctantly did so and was thrilled and amazed at how clean the carpets were. I was so happy because they smelled great and are so soft now.
I continue to diffuse Thieves, Purification and Eucalytpus a couple of times a week. The issues are gone. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!

Recently a crayon made it into the laundry and when the combined load of my son's and my clothes came out of the dryer there were smatterings of orange crayon on everything. Since it was a combination of colors and fabrics I was sure that it was all ruined but put some Thieves cleaner on it full strength anyway. I rubbed the fabric against itself and to my amazement the crayon came out before it was even rewashed. I never thought that orange crayon would come out of blue cotton after it had been through the dryer but everything I put it on came out spotless!

I went online and ordered the Thieves household cleaner. To my surprise, it was so highly concentrated, I only needed half a cap mixed with water in a spray bottle to clean my entire house. I got a rust stain and a mystery stain out of my carpet in 5 minutes. The mystery stain had been there 3 months, and I had tried everything else on it, chemical cleaners, boiling water, baking soda, vinegar, ect...The Thieves cleaner took it right out. Now I put a drop in my dishwasher, I clean the floors with it, I soak my kitchen sponges in it, I clean glass, mirrors, the tub and toilet, litter boxes, everything! I got rid of all my old chemical cleaners and I couldn't be happier!

I had something growing on the backside of my house on the siding. So got out my trusty spray bottle of Thieves Cleaner and went to work. I sprayed the siding down then brushed and rinsed. It has been 1 year and 6 months since I have cleaned the siding and nothing has returned.

My husband got caulking all over his washable pants. I tried plain water but the caulk repelled the water. I then grabbed the Thieves Cleaner and poured it directly on the affected areas. With a little rubbing I found that the Thieves Cleaner melted the caulk away. After washing the pants they came out looking like new.

My husband works at a oil and lube company and his work clothes get very dirty and greasy. I spray them with Thieves cleaner before laundering, rub it in, and launder - no grease spots! I've also used Thieves on old stains (didn't even know what they were), and it removed all the stains.

We were having a bunch of people over for my birthday and my Mom looked at my BBQ and suggested we clean all the grease off it (it was grease from BBQing all summer). I hadn't yet tried the Thieves cleaner, but it had a dilution ratio for degreasing.
I did that and gave the cleaner to Mom to clean the BBQ. She came back totally amazed it took the grease off with ONE wipe! It's all natural with NO harsh chemicals!
The Thieves cleaner diluted 1:100 is the BEST cleaner I have ever used on windows/mirrors no streaking whatsoever!

I'm an elementary school teacher. I have white boards in my classroom, large ones mounted on the walls and also individual ones. I now use Thieves cleaner to keep them clean. Since it is not harmful, the class can actually clean the individual ones themselves! My first graders love it. I love the fact that there is no greasy residue, the tray for holding the dry erase markers wipes clean without smears, and I can breathe the air in my room after cleaning up. Life is so much easier with essential oil products.

I found a chunk of gum stuck to our hall shag carpet. It had been there for several months, dried but thoroughly stuck to the fibers. I dabbed Thieves cleaner on a cotton ball, then rubbed it on the gum and let it sit for a minute. The gum literally just lifted off the carpet. You can rub your fingers across the treated spot. There is no way to tell there ever was any gum there!

I made the mistake of soaking my orchids in the bathroom sink. Over time, the silt settled in the pipes and they were completely clogged. No amount of plunging unclogged the mess of black mucky water. I poured a cap full of Thieves cleaner down the drain, and it completely dissolved the mess. Truly amazing!

I could not get my stainless steel refrigerator clean using anything until I used a diluted spray of Thieves cleaner and water. It works like a charm to wipe away those fingerprints!

This weekend we used Thieves cleaner to wash all the wood trim on the outside of our home. We put water in a large sprayer bottle with 45 cap fulls of the cleaner. Not only did the wood trim clean up beautifully, but it also looked like we had repainted all the trim. The best part was there were no dangerous fumes, the rags were clean and fragrant, and we tossed out the water knowing it would not harm the grass. Now we are not only clean, but green!
