Below are some of many-to-come ideas and recipes for you for homemade cleaning products. The ones below are for general use. 

Homemade Cleaner 1

Mix your own cleaner with these ingredients to kill bacteria and leave your surfaces shining:

1 tablespoon of Borax powder (find it in the laundry aisle of your supermarket);
3 tablespoons of white vinegar;
2 cups of water;
1 tablespoon of dish soap;
1 drop of essential oil such as peppermint for fragrance (optional).

Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, give it a shake, and you are ready to clean. To wipe windows, you also can use plain white vinegar on newspapers. To disinfect toys and other kids' products, fill a spray bottle with non-chlorine bleach (3% hydrogen peroxide) and wipe with a paper towel.

Homemade Cleaner 2

1 quart warm water
1 teaspoon liquid soap
1 teaspoon borax
1/4 cup undiluted white vinegar

Mix ingredients and store in a spray bottle. Use for cleaning countertops, floors, walls, carpets and upholstery.

So, it is not that hard or impossible to ditch all the toxic chemicals lurking under your kitchen cabinet, on the shelf in your bathroom, and out in the garage. Please share you ideas and recipes with us in the comments section below.

Cleaning can be a lot easier if you have all everything you need by your side. You wouldn’t want to look for something once you get started. It really kills momentum. And this stuff should also be quality stuff for faster and better cleaning.
