Are you going green this year?

The new year is here! Are you looking to keep your New Year’s Resolution and be kinder to Mother Earth? Lots of people say there “Going Green” but who sticks with it??.. If you’re looking into saving a few bucks and going more organic check out a few recipes for Homemade, All Natural Cleaning Recipes!

If you are planning on making your own cleaners, I recommend you go ahead and purchase some of the basic ingredients you will need for many of these recipes: White vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, washing soda, Castile soap and a few essential oils.

Daily Shower Cleaner: 

  • Fill your spray bottle halfway with vinegar.
  • Add several squirts of natural dish soap (about 2-3 Tbsp. depending on the size of your bottle. Mine is 32 oz.)
  • Fill the bottle the rest of the way with warm water, and shake gently to combine.

This cleaner works great as a Shower Cleaner and/or Daily Shower Spray. You can spray it on a few minutes before you jump in the shower and then wipe down the shower walls while you’re taking a shower. Multitasking at it finest!

Toxin Free Deep Toilet Cleaner:

For deeper cleaning, make a paste out of baking soda and castile soap and use it like a soft scrub. You can also use cream of tartar with some vinegar.

One thing you can do for deeper cleaning is to turn off the water to your toilet using the valve on the back and flush it a few times until most of the water is out of the bowl. Then you can put the paste right onto the bowl and let it sit for a while, 20 minutes or more, before you scrub it off. Having the water out of the bowl makes the scrubbing easier.

Bleach FREE Washing Machine Cleaner:

  • 2 cups Vinegar (plus 1 cup more if you have a fabric softener dispenser)
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • Multi-Purpose Citrus Cleaner (optional)
  1. Fill your washing machine to the highest level with hot water then stop the machine.
  2. Pour 2 cups of vinegar and 1/2 cup baking soda right into the water.
  3. Turn your washing machine back on (remember you turned it off after you filled it up with water). Let it agitate for a few minutes then turn it back off again leaving the water/vinegar/baking soda mix in the washer. 
  4.  While it’s sitting there soaking, get a washcloth and clean the outside with some Multi-Purpose Citrus Cleaner.
  5. Fill the fabric softener dispenser full of vinegar and leave your machine alone for 30-60 minutes letting it soak. After it sits, turn it back on and let it finish the entire cycle including an extra rinse cycle. 

DIY Laundry Spot Remover:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup liquid castile soap
  • 1/4 cup liquid vegetable glycerin
  • 5-10 drops of lemon essential oil 
  • Glass spray bottle OR plastic squeeze-type bottle
    Mix all ingredients together.

To use, shake well and apply liberally to spots and stains. Lightly rub the mixture into the fabric with your fingertips. As with most spot removers, this one works best if you treat the spot immediately and allow it to soak before tossing it into the washing machine. Sometimes I’ll even allow the item to soak overnight before washing it.
