Spiritual House Cleaning

Spiritual House Cleaning is an essential step in the process of the uncrossing, protection and blessing regimen.

Once you’ve gathered all the materials you need to cleanse yourself and your home (see the lesson called Uncrossing), here are the instructions you need to use the items. Use things in the order they are presented.

There is a reason for the order!

Don’t skip ahead to the easiest thing!

Emergency Bath

To protect yourself from unwanted influences, an emergency bath formula is:

  • 1 cup Salt (Epsom Salt or Sea salt)
  • ½ cup Apple Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Ammonia

(recipe from Protection & Reversal Magick)

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that it’s all stuff that most people already have in their kitchens. So, it’s actually suitable for emergencies and there’s nothing to wait on.

Add no more than a tablespoon of Ammonia. This amount is perfectly safe. Add too much and it will burn the skin. At the level of a tablespoon, you will not even notice it.

This bath is to strip ALL influences from you, both positive and negative.

For this reason, you should not do it very often, only when you’re under immediate spiritual attack. It is a short term solution to help you stay strong while you perform the other cleansing measures. Emergencies only.

A Simple Emergency Kit

A basic emergency kit for the practicing magician:

Uncrossing Bath Mix

To use this bath mix, run a hot bath, in a clean tub. Add to it the Uncrossing Bath Mix. Put the whole ounce of bath mix into the cloth bag and tie it up.

Boil some water and take the pot off the heat. Add the cloth bag and steep it like tea for 10 minutes. Add this to the tub. Make sure the tub is clean.

While in the tub, recite Psalms and ask for spiritual cleansing. When you get out of the tub, DO NOT towel dry yourself. Air dry.

Read the article on this page called How To Take A Ritual Bath. Use this bath whenever you feel you are slipping back into a negative cycle of bad luck, scary thoughts or if you sense anything evil in the house.

Uncrossing Oil

Dab some of this on your thumb and make the sign of the cross (either an equal-armed cross, or a Calvary cross) over every door and window in the home. Anoint yourself, your family and even your pets with this, by making the sign of the cross on the forehead and the backs of the hands. Be aware in advance that some people may have sensitive skin. Test a small area first.

Pray out loud, while you do this. Use the 23rd Psalm, 37th Psalm or the 51st Psalm. Do this once a day for 9 days straight. Don’t have a Bible? Find helpful, waterproof copies of these prayers in the Conjure Shop but there’s always resources like this link: 23rd Psalm

Floor Wash – Take a mop bucket and fill it with hot water, as hot as you can make it. Add to the water the following:

  • ¼ cup Garlic (powdered or minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Red Pepper (powdered or flakes)
  • ½ cup Vinegar (preferably Apple or Red Wine)

Protection Floor Wash

(recipe from Protection & Reversal Magick)

Or this one… 1 tablespoon each of:



Blessed Thistle





Protection Floor Wash

Or better still, get my  Protection Bath Mix and make it up as a floor wash. Use it as a bath or as a floor wash… but not both… gross.

To do a floor wash, first sweep and mop your entire house. If you have more than one floor, start at the top floor and work your way down.

You are driving evil energy out of the house. So, work back to front, ending at the front door. You are pushing the mess out into the street.

Throw the remaining water straight out the front door, as far as you can. If you live in an apartment, it’s OK to compromise here but still, take it outside the building and throw it.

For carpets, mix up the recipe in a spray bottle and spray the carpets. It might smell funny for a few hours but it will go away, completely.

Going Through The Motions

An interesting fact about the procedures of Spiritual House Cleaning is that you don’t need to believe in it. It doesn’t really matter what you think about any of this stuff, as long as you do it.

Even a hard nose skeptic will notice the difference. They just won’t admit that one is connecting to the other.

Chinese Wash

This is something you use to wipe down everything in the home. It’s a base of Murphy’s Oil Soap but it has Van Van Oil added to it. It’s a Hoodoo mixture of lemon oil and the essential oils of certain grasses.

The recipe varies from practitioner to practitioner many workers will not reveal their recipes. I know, because I’m one of them.

Chinese Wash

Once the Chinese Wash formula is complete, three broomcorn straws are put in. When you use up the whole bottle, then you throw the straws outside your home.

You dilute Chinese Wash with water. Use about a tablespoon of it to a quart (or even a half-gallon) of hot water.

Take a rag and thoroughly wet it with the mixture. Wring it out lightly and wipe down every surface in your home that will not be damaged by water.

Your rag should not be soaking wet, anyway… just damp. Keep rewetting and wringing out the rag, periodically. After you have wiped everything down, throw the left over water out the front door.

Protection Bath Mix

See the article on this page called How To Take A Ritual Bath. Use this formula whenever you feel you sense a threat or you are around a known enemy.

Blessed Salt

Sea Salt I consecrate in the Temple and I do the work at special times, like Moon in Taurus. It’s not the quick saying of a prayer, but an intense ritual that of about 20 minutes.

Spread a thin line of this across the doorways and the windows of your house, praying while you do so. This line of defense keeps bad things out. Evil spirits and negative energy must go, before we bring good things in.
