There’s nothing like a bit of spring cleaning to prep your home for the warmer months. Sadly though, getting your living space fresh and organised can often be accompanied by whole lot of harsh chemicals. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way – there are a plenty of super effective cleaners that you can DIY using natural ingredients, which will save you money and have your house spick and span in no time!
1. Home-made cleaning wipes via Hello Glow
Did you know it’s super easy to make your own countertop wipes? I wasn’t clued in on this until recently, but you can bet I’ll be doing it all the time now that I know how!
2. All-purpose cleaning spray via Everyday Roots
Why spray harsh chemicals all over the place when you can make your own natural all-purpose cleaning spray? It’s gentle on your senses, but still cuts through grease and grime!
3. Natural bleach alternative via Hello Glow
Did you know that there’s an alternative to using chlorine bleach for cleaning? I find I have to hold my breath every time I open a bottle of that stuff, but if you use these gentler alternatives you can get the same effect without the headache!
4. Glass cleaner via Live Simply
Glass cleaners are one of those items that I’ve always bought from the store to ensure I get a streak free finish. Little did I know there’s a way to get that finish with a cleaner I can make at home myself!
5. Wood floor cleaner via Pop Sugar
As an owner of a house with floorboards, I know how beautiful they can look when properly cleaned and maintained. In the past that’s always involved using strong chemicals with headache-inducing scents, but now I can scrub away with a natural wood cleaner and fill my house with the sweet smells of essential oils instead!
6. Laundry Powder via Mommypotamus
I’ve been using organic laundry powders for awhile now, but buying them in a supermarket can be quite costly. Next time your laundry powder runs out, save yourself some dollars and try out this natural homemade version.
7. Toilet bowl cleaner via Live Simply
Instead of using chlorine bleach or a commercial cleaner on your toilet, why not try using a homemade mixture? With the disinfecting and antibacterial ingredients in this natural cleaner, you’ll have your toilet sparkling in no time.
8. Oven cleaner by Pop Sugar
I’m going to embarrass myself by admitting my oven is in a right state. Seriously, grime central. How it got to be that way is a story for another time, but I’m definitely a fan of heavy duty oven cleaners that won’t leave harsh chemicals where I’m going to cook my food. This cleaner from Pop Sugar makes it look easy to remove layers of baked on grime and I can’t wait to try it out!
