Whether you’re going green for the health of a family member or pet, or you are trying to save money on cleaning products, or you’re doing a good turn for the earth, making your own cleaning products are easy to make and use in your home.
Non-toxic Oven Cleaner
A combination of baking soda, salt, washing soda, and vinegar turns into a paste. Once you preheat your oven to its lowest setting and turn it back off, spread the paste all over the walls of your oven and let it set overnight. Wipe it off with warm water in the morning.
DIY Glass Cleaner
Get shiny clean mirrors and windows using a mixture of white vinegar, cornstarch, rubbing alcohol and water. Keep it in a spray bottle and shake it before each use to re-mix the corn starch.
Easy Furniture Polish
When you mix olive oil, vinegar and your favorite essential oil, you have a natural wood furniture polish that you can spray on and use to polish any wood item.
Pine Floor Cleaner Without The Extra Chemicals
If you love the smell, but hate the chemicals, use pine essential oil mixed with liquid castile soap and warm water to make your own fresh-selling floor cleaner.
In most cases, you can make standard cleaning products from items that are most likely already in your pantry: vinegar, cornstarch, dishwashing liquid, salt, and baking soda. There are many recipes to try, and they can easily be found online.
