Natural Cleaning Recipes for Homemade Cleaning Products
Why make your own? Oh, let me count the reasons! No toxic chemicals for one thing. Many people start raising their eyebrows about traditional cleaners when they become pregnant. I didn’t want chemical residues on my countertops where food is prepared and I certainly didn’t want it on my skin. And how about once you’re bathing a little baby in a tub just scrubbed with bleach? I felt much better knowing I used a Natural Bathroom Cleaner Recipe. When you make your own you control the ingredients.
Sure, you could buy 15 different cleaning products that are supposed to do different things but you’ll have a whole bin of toxic clutter that you have to keep away from children and pets. Personally, I don’t want that in my home. Instead, I use this Natural All Purpose Cleaner Recipe that takes the place of several spray cleaners. Of course I don’t want streaky windows or mirrors so I do use one other spray, this Window Cleaning Recipe and it only has two ingredients!
Sometimes you will want a solution that does a very specific thing, like these Natural Jewelry Cleaning Recipes or Natural Dish Soap but they too are very simple using the same ingredients you already have.
I’ve also found that it is much, much cheaper to rely on natural cleaning recipes than it is to purchase the products – especially the eco-friendly cleaning products on the market which can be as high as five dollars for a spray cleaner!
If you are using homemade cleaners, you may also be interested in making your own cleaning cloths! These handmade unpaper towels for cleaning are absorbant, cheap and easy to make.
