All Natural Homemade Cleaning Products

Keeping your home organized and sparkly is what this month is all about! It's spring cleaning month and we've already had so much fun discussing great ways to organize your home

Today I wanted to take some time to focus on cleaning. I mean like scrubbing. I am super big into keeping my home clean of any sort of dirt and grime. But cleaning products can get expensive ya'll. There is a part of me that feels like my house isn't clean enough because we don't have the extra budget to purchase all of the crazy products I need.

I know there are lots of us who want that super tidy home without the stretch on our wallets. So I've put together a little compilation of some of my favorite all natural, home made cleaning products. They are all super easy to create and will save your budget a ton along the way!

Let's start first with some of the necessary ingredients you'll need to put together your home made products. It's amazing what you can do with some...

Baking Soda, White Vinegar, Essential Oils, and Water!

Other great ingredients you will need for your products are olive oil, dish soap, and rubbing alcohol. Now let's create!!

Glass Cleaner

1 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of White Vinegar
1 Cup of Rubbing Alcohol
5 Drops of a Lemon or Citrus Essential Oil
(Mix together in a spray bottle)

Shower Cleaner

For every 1 Cup of Water use 1/4 Cup of White Vinegar
(Mix in a spray bottle to spritz across your shower walls)

All Purpose Cleaner

Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Baking Soda Your Couch & Your Carpet

This one is super easy. Just sprinkle baking soda over your couch or carpet, let sit for a little bit,
and then vacuum it up. The baking soda will pull out any unwanted odors that are lingering in
your furniture or floor.

Making your own cleaning products is super easy and inexpensive. I promise you, it will help keep your home spotless and your wallet full. All natural products also help keep your space clean without any of the chemicals that come in your brand products from the store. So it's super great for kids, pets, and even yourself when you're trying not to breath in those harsh cleaning chemicals.
