Benefits Of Using DIY Natural Cleaners

Do you know what it feels like to be unable to choose a product because there are too many options? It is very easy to end up in such a situation when it comes to buying household cleaning items. After all, how can you know the difference between the different brands if you are not an expert?

On the other hand, when you go for natural super clean products, brands do not play any role. You simply choose what to put inside, so you can control the ingredients. Not only is this a healthier option, but it is also often much cheaper than buying house cleaning products. So, why not create your own good clean naturally solutions with products you already have around your house?

Household Ingredients For Toxic-Free House Cleaning

Baking soda, sea salt and distilled white vinegar are great allies when it comes to toxic-free house cleaning. Not only is baking soda cheap, but it is also versatile. The same applies to vinegar. It makes a great natural cleaner and disinfecting agent you can use on almost any surface except stone floors.

Next, always keep a lemon or two in your fridge. Even if you do not need them for cleaning, you can always use part of them as a garnish in your cocktail.

Liquid dish soap, cotton balls, hydrogen peroxide and cheap rubbing alcohol can also come in handy while you prepare for spring cleaning. Also, do not forget to provide yourself with a tablespoon of tea tree oil and corn starch. You can use essential oils for disinfecting surfaces and corn starch in a glass cleaning solution.

Note: Make sure you avoid washing windows on a hot day because this cleaner will dry too quickly. Also, when you clean mirrors, spray the cleaning solution on a paper towel before you start wiping.

When you want to clean wood or tile floors, you can also use homemade lemon vinegar cleaner. However, avoid homemade floor cleaner with vinegar on stone surfaces such as marble and granite. In those cases, it is better to use mild dish soap.


#3. A Natural Air Freshener

In addition to using essential oils for disinfecting surfaces, they can also help you make your own air freshener. Besides, it is possible to make a scented wood air freshener by shaking the scent and the wood in a jar.
