Recipe – DIY Cleaning Products

Recently, I used scrubbing my house as a way to procrastinate NaNoWriMo – I hit a short-lived, mid-month, lull. But, I realized I hadn’t yet shared my recipes for DIY homemade cleaners. So, here we go 🙂

All Purpose Cleaner

Great for kitchen counters and appliance surfaces

In a spray bottle, add:

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil (or lavender)
  • A little water
  • 2 tbs baking soda
    • Add the baking soda slowly! It will fizz up pretty high
  • Once settled, fill the bottle the rest of the way with water (about 2 cups)

Note: After use, the baking soda will leave a thin film of white powder when it dries. To avoid this, do an extra swipe with just water.

Glass Cleaner

Great for mirrors, and glass and wood surfaces – dries streak-free

In a spray bottle, add:

  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil (or lavender)
  • 2 cups of water

Happy cleaning?… Or, at least, enjoy the lack of chemical-smells while you chore!
