Best Homemade Cleaners Recipes
I always keep a good stock of things like baking soda, vinegar, borax powder, washing soap, and of course, essential oils, on hand. The combination of these items typically is all you need to make great products for cleaning your home. Below are some of my own favorite products, and a few I found on other blogs to fit your needs.
DIY Household Cleaners
Keeping things sanitary is easier than ever with these cleaners. I personally like to make double batches of most to keep some in every bathroom, as well as the kitchen. It's so much easier to grab them and use it when needed than to hunt them down in another room.
Start with these DIY Cleaning Wipes and make extras for use on countertops, doorknobs, handles, and more. For all other surfaces, I use this Homemade All Purpose Cleaner. It's a great option for use with cloth or paper towels and ideal for everything except wood. Even then, most wooden surfaces would be safe to clean with it.
For the bathroom, I like to keep this Natural Bathroom Cleaner. I also like to use this DIY Natural Bathtub Cleaner for my bathtub and shower. It is easy to whip up and works wonderfully to clean and remove mold and soap scum. Of course, I also keep my mirrors sparkling clean with this great Homemade Glass Cleaner.
For use on those wood surfaces like tables, coffee tables, and railings, make this simple Wood Dusting Spray. This is a favorite and ideal for keeping my entertainment center and end tables looking great and dust-free.
DIY Laundry Cleaners
Of course, my list isn't complete without some products to help ease up the laundry routine. My tips for How to Make Homemade Fabric Sheets and How to Make Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent are a must. I also pick up supplies and follow this recipe for How to Make Your Own Febreeze. It's perfect for getting rid of that stinky boy smell that comes in on gym bags.
