Are you looking to make your home a bit greener? Look no further—you can easily make your own safe and effective DIY cleaning products that will help you reduce your environmental footprint.
Here are some helpful tips for making your own cleaning products with natural ingredients.
1. All-purpose cleaner
Mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar with 2 cups of water, and add 10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice. This makes a great all-purpose cleaner that can be used to clean countertops, tables, and other surfaces.
2. Glass cleaner
Mix 1/4 cup of white vinegar with 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 cup of water. To make it smell nice, add 5-10 drops of essential oil. This makes a great window and glass cleaner.
3. Carpet cleaner
Sprinkle baking soda on the carpet and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to remove odors. Vacuum the baking soda up and use a mixture of 1/4 cup of white vinegar and 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol with 1 cup of warm water for tough stains.
4. Bathroom cleaner
Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of white vinegar in a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap and mix until it forms a paste. Use this paste to scrub tubs, sinks, and tiles.
5. Mold and mildew cleaner
Mix 1/2 cup of vinegar with 1/2 cup of water and add 10-15 drops of tea tree essential oil. Spray the mixture on the affected area and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping away.
These homemade cleaning products are a great way to keep your home clean without using harsh chemicals. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they’re also much cheaper than store-bought cleaners. Give them a try and see the difference!
