Home cleaning products recipes

Homemade all purpose cleaner

0,5 cup white vinegar, 2 tbsp baking soda, 10 drops tea tree/ lavender/ lemon essential oil (for their disinfectant properties). Mix in a clean spray bottle (glass is best) and fill to the top with tepid water. Shake before use.


Homemade mirror and glass cleaner

1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 2 cups water. Use a lint free cloth.


Oven cleaner

0,5 cup baking soda, 2 tbsp water, 0,5 white vinegar,

Mix 0,5 cup of baking soda and stir in the water, adjusting as needed to get a spreadable paste. Spread this all over the walls of your ovens, rubbing it in for a scrubbing effect. Let the mixture rest overnight. In the morning, you will put some vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz everywhere you see baking soda, which will create a foaming action.  Wipe clean with a damp cloth, rinsing until clean.


Carpet stain remover

Sprinkle the stain with baking soda and let it sit for about 10 minutes, then vacuum it up. Mix 1 tbsp Dawn dish soap, 1 tbsp white vinegar, and 2 cups of warm water.Sponge this onto the stain and blot with dry cloth, repeat until stain disappears.


Carpet/air freshener

In addition to freshening the smell in a room, this combination of ingredients can disinfect, kill fleas and their eggs, and act as a rodent deterrent.

2 cups borax, 1 cup baking soda, 10 drops essential oil

Mix all ingredients well.  Store in an air-tight container.  When you’re ready to use, just sprinkle around the carpet and let sit for about half an hour.  Vacuum up, and it’s done.
