The ingredients in most of the more popular household cleaners today include harsh or toxic products that can harm the environment and you. Â With the “green” revolution in full force these days, there are more and more non-toxic products being introduced. Â I personally love the “Seventh Generation” products. These products smell great, come in recycled packaging and do a great job. Â But if you are like me, a clean freak who purchases a lot of cleaning supplies, it can get a bit pricey.Â I recently read an article in Natural Home Magazine about making your own oven cleaner with products you probably have in your pantry. Â This inspired me to make my own cleaners and share some of the recipes with you. Â Simple items like lemons, olive oil and baking soda do the trick for getting out those stubborn stains and disinfecting the natural way. Â I have compiled a shopping list and a few great recipes to get you started making your own cleaners! Remember, you can experiment with these ingredients to make your own custom cleaner just for your needs.
- Baking Soda
- Liquid Dish Soap ( Greenworks )
- Lemon Dishwasher Liquid Soap ( Seventh Generation )
- Olive Oil
- Lemon Juice
- Washing Soda ( Arm & Hammer all natural )
- White Vinegar
- Polishing Cloth
