3 Do It Yourself Cleaning Products

Easy do it yourself cleaning recipes to use in your home. They don’t have any chemicals that will aggravate anyone’s asthma or allergies. 

1. All-purpose cleaner
Using cleaning products that don’t have harsh smells is a good start. You can also make your own using a few simple steps and inexpensive ingredients.

You’ll need:

3 cups distilled water
1 teaspoon natural dish soap
3 cups white vinegar
A few drops of an essential oil of your choice (tea tree oil, lemon or orange oils are good choices)

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and use the solution to clean countertops, floors and walls. A word of caution: Do not use vinegar solutions on marble surfaces.

2. Glass cleaner
You’ll need:

3 cups distilled water
3 cups white vinegar
A few drops of an essential oil of your choice. I usually use lemon oil or lavender. 

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and use the solution to clean glass surfaces, including mirrors.

3. Furniture polish
You’ll need:

½ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and use the solution to polish wood surfaces.

Bonus tips
Baking soda and white vinegar can clean toilets and showers.
If you want some abrasion to remove a stain, try sprinkling some salt on the stain.
After you’ve squeezed a lemon for a recipe, rub the inside of the rind in your kitchen sink. The lemon will clean the sink and keep it smelling fresh.

These glass squirt bottles are good if your using essential oils.
