Grandma's Recipes for Homemade Cleaning Products

5 Minutes

If you are looking for an alternative to harsh chemical cleaners, then you simply must give my grandma's old fashioned cleaning product recipes a go.
I think our grandmothers had it right when they used their basic home recipes and everyday items to make natural cleaning products. I love them and find these recipes a better option for my family who have asthma and allergies.
4 super easy and cheap recipes to make your own natural cleaning products.
Bicarbonate of Soda cleans, deodorises and scours
Vinegar cuts through grease and soap scum, dissolves mineral deposits, stops mould and kills 99% of bacteria, mould and viruses.
Essential oils like Eucalyptus, Lavender and Lemongrass freshen and disinfect. Fresh lemon will degrease, remove stains and freshen.

    I love the containers. Are these homemade? They are beautiful...

  • Hi @Margaret Yes the containers are homemade too. I purchased spray bottles and plastic screw top tubs from my local discount store and made some pretty labels to go on each of them. Using natural ingredients means that the products are all a similar colour and it is hard to tell which is which once in a tub.
