1. Citrus-Infused Surface Cleaner
Start by grabbing that bottle of distilled white vinegar from your cupboard. Find a reusable jar and fill it up with vinegar.
Next, take some citrus peels and add them to the vinegar.

Seal the jar and let it sit in the refrigerator for a week.
After a week, grab a spray bottle, and strain out the peels and herbs.
Use this concoction to clean your tables and surfaces. It's that easy!
2. DIY Cleaning Wipes
In a bowl, mix 1 and 3/4 cups of water with 1/4 cup of vinegar.
Add 1/4 teaspoon of Dawn dish soap to the mixture.
Take an old pitcher and arrange some paper towels inside.
Pour your homemade solution into the pitcher, saturating the paper towels.
Let it soak for a bit, then carefully remove the inner paper towel piece.
You've just created handy disposable cleaning wipes!
Use them to wipe down your surfaces.

3. Homemade Floor Cleaner
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of vinegar.
Add 1 cup of rubbing alcohol to the mixture.
Don't forget to throw in a few drops of Dawn dish soap.
Stir everything together and transfer the solution into a spray bottle.
Grab your trusty steam mop and fill it with distilled water. Turn it on to heat up while you prepare your cleaning tools.
Soak a reusable microfiber cloth in your sink, wringing it out thoroughly. Secure the cloth to your steam mop, making sure it's well wrung out.
When the steam mop is ready, spray the floors with your homemade floor cleaner and use your steam mop over it.
Wash your cloth in the machine, so it is clean for next time!
