Easy Homemade Cleaning Recipes
There are so many different cleaning products in the grocery store that it’s easy to go a bit crazy. Yes, there are 37 different scents and colors to choose from, but you really can do just as good a job with a homemade cleaning recipe (and it’s not toxic). These recipes and DIY tips will get you started on the way to a holiday-ready home. It’s very easy to make these DIY natural cleaning products.
What you need to get started with these easy homemade cleaning recipes:
Vinegar – Many natural cleaning recipes contain vinegar because it cuts grease and kills germs and bacteria. You should be able to pick up a gallon of this at your grocery store. Make sure you get white vinegar.
Essential Oils – If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. I prefer lemon or lemongrass for cleaning recipes. But, you can also use tea tree oil. I really like using these homemade cleaning products with essential oils.
Spray Bottles – You will want to have a few spray bottles to use when creating these easy homemade cleaning recipes. That way, you can mix up one batch and use it as you need it. Make sure you label them so you know what’s in them.
