Make Your Own Green Cleaning Supplies
While there are several great green cleaning supply brands that are safe, healthy, and effective, some people like the option of going “full green” and making their cleaning supplies using simple ingredients. By making your own cleaning supplies, you know exactly what’s in the solution and can reduce waste. Not only will you help the environment, but you can also save money.
You might be surprised to learn what ingredients you can use to clean and which ones might already be sitting in your pantry.
The following are common ingredients that can be used to clean, either alone or with other ingredients:
– Baking soda
– White vinegar
– Eucalyptus oil
– Isopropyl alcohol
– Citrus extracts
– Hydrogen peroxide
– Castille soap
Here are a few essential cleaning products you can make yourself:
If your carpet is a little smelly or just needs to be freshened up, simply sprinkle baking soda or corn starch onto the carpet and let it sink in for up to an hour. Then vacuum.
You can easily make your own air freshener by boiling lavender or citrus extracts in water.
Forget common cleaning products that use ammonia. Make your own window cleaner by combining four cups of water to every one cup of vinegar. Add a couple of drops of essential oils for a pleasant smell.
Behold the wonder of citrus! To disinfect, just use lemon juice. Lemon can even remove oil stains on laundry.
All Purpose Cleaner
Mix a quart of water with four tablespoons of baking soda for a quick and easy all purpose cleaner.
For every one cup of vegetable oil, mix in one teaspoon of lemon oil. Mix together and use a dry rag to make your furniture shine like new.
Using a 50-50 mixture of water and white vinegar, clean your grout with a toothbrush. For more hard-to-budge dirt, mix baking soda with water to create a paste and scrub with a toothbrush.
Increase the Shine of Stainless Steel
Simply use olive oil on a dry cloth and buff to make your stainless steel appliances shine bright.
Have a buildup of rust on a metal pan? Use salt and lime. Sprinkle salt onto the rust and add limejuice over the salt. Let sit for three hours and then use the lime rind to remove the mixture.
