Learning how to make and use your own natural cleaning recipes is a lot easier than you may think. Plus, they cost a lot less than most products you will buy to do the same job.
Many of the ingredients used for natural cleaners will already be in your cupboard. Here are 9 natural cleaning recipes to make that will have your home sparkling from top to bottom. Plus the addition of essential oils will make it smell amazing.
DIY Garbage Bin Deodorizer
Lets start with one of the smelliest parts of the house. Any garbage bin in the kitchen or bathroom can get stinky and needs disinfecting on a regular basis. Instead of using a store bought antibacterial spray, try a homemade natural deodorizer and disinfectant using powerful essential oils.
Tea tree oil is the best pick when it comes to killing germs and bacteria. Combine it with lemon and peppermint and all those funky smells will be gone.
- In a spray bottle (like this) combine:
- Fill the bottle to about 3/4 with water.
- To use, spray garbage bins, let sit for ten minutes, then wipe clean and dry.
Natural Floor Cleaner
Give your floor a natural clean while spreading the smell of essential oils right through the house. This natural floor cleaner uses a chemical free soap so your floor will sparkle without the need for harsh chemicals.
This recipe is not for wooden floors (see recipe below) but is ideal for tiles, linoleum and laminate.
In a bucket combine:
- 1/2 cup pure castile soap
- 3 gallons (10 litres) of hot water
- 20 drops essential oils of choice
