6,939 Views
Going green is always a great way to do things, most especially inside our homes. And what better way to do that than to use home-made cleaners without any harsh chemicals that can harm the environment.
Found this awesome post by Frugal Living Mom about home-made household cleaner recipes.
Kitchen Counter Scrubber: To get off tough gunk, mix kosher salt and water and scrub with a wet cloth or sponge.
Window Cleaner: Combine 1/2 teaspoon mild dish detergent, 3T vinegar, and 2 cups of water into a spray bottle. Use it just like you’d use the commercial window cleaner.
Glass Shower Cleaner: Cut a lemon in half and dip it in kosher salt. Scrub the glass shower and watch the soap scum disappear!
Carpet Spot Cleaner: Combine 1/4 cup liquid soap in a blender with 1/3 cup water, until it is foamy. Spray on the stain, then rinse it with vinegar.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Simply take 2 cups of vinegar and let it sit in the toilet overnight. In the morning, clean with a toilet bowl brush and flush.
Disinfectant: Skip the bleach and mix 2 cups of water, 3T of liquid soap and about 20 drops of tea tree oil. Use it to wipe down porcelain and tile.
All Purpose Cleaner: Mix 2T vinegar, 1t Borax, a few drops of mild dish detergent, 10 drops of essential oils, and some hot water together in a spray bottle. This solution can be used to clean any hard surface.
Floor Cleaner: Combine 1 cup white vinegar with 1 gallon of warm water in a cleaning bucket and use it to mop your tile or vinyl floors.
Oven Rack Cleaner: Soak your dirty oven racks in a bath tub with hot water, 8 dryer sheets, and 1/2 cup Dawn dish soap. Let it sit overnight, then use the dryer sheets to rub off any remaining grime.
Furniture Polish: Mix 1 cup olive oil with 1/2 cup lemon juice. Shake well and apply a small amount to a cleaning cloth. Spread it over the surface you’re cleaning, and then dry with a separate cloth.
