MakeYour Own “All-Natural” Household Cleaners

Toilet Cleaner:

  • Plastic container
  • Orange Peel
  • Baking Soda

Put an orange peel in a plastic container with baking soda and shake for 5 minutes, then let sit for a few hours. Then, remove the peel and leave the lid off overnight. To use: Sprinkle in toilet, add vinegar, scrub with toilet brush and leave for 20-30 minutes, flush

All Purpose Cleaner:

  • 1 spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Dish soap
  • Essential oil

Fill half of your bottle with water, and half with vinegar. Put 10-20 drops of dish soap in. Then put as many drops of essential oils as you’d like on top of the dish soap. Shake, and use as needed.

I like a combo scent of sweet orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Right now I’m digging peppermint.

We have two 12-pack of washcloths from Target that we use like bleach wipes. We use them once or twice, then throw them in the wash pile.

Shower Cleaner:

  • 1/2 Cup Baking Soda
  • Liquid soap/detergent
  • Optional: Tea tree oil or vinegar (great mold killers)

Pour baking soda into a bowl with enough liquid detergent to make a texture like frosting. Scoop mixture onto a sponge and wash the surface.

Wood Furniture Polish:

  • 1 teaspoon oil (such as olive)
  • 1/2 cup vinegar or fresh lemon juice

Mix ingredients in a glass jar, dab a soft rag into the solution, wipe onto wood surfaces.

After Shower Spray:

  • 2 tsp tea tree oil
  • 2 cups water
  • Optional: Essential oil/lemon juice

Combine in spray bottle. Shake to blend. Spray over shower and do not rinse.
