DIY cleaning Recipes



For the New Year instead of making unrealistic goals I stick with things that I know I can stick with. And one goal is to start making my own cleaning products and stay away from the chemically stuff at the grocery stores. I am sharing some great recipes that are safe for your kiddos to join in if they'd want to help with the cleaning.

Fresh Lemon degreaser

- 2 cups of water

- 2 tbsp of lemon juice

- 1/2 of Dr. Bonner's Castile soap

- 1 tbsp of baking soda

All purpose cleaner

- 1 cup of white vinegar

- 10 drops of lavender essential oil

- 10 drops of lemon essential oil

- 1/2 cup of water


Glass cleaner

- 2 cups of water

- 2 tbsp of white vinegar

- 2 tbsp of rubbing alcohol

- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil

Hardwood floor cleaner

Besides these great all natural cleaners. We bought a steam mop to get rid of allergens since I suffer from so many kinds of allergies and my kiddos as well we thought it was such a great product to get.



Some benefits of a steam mop

- Steam mop kills at least 99.9% of bacteria we can't even see

- Its eco friendly

- Steam cleaning dries faster than traditional mopping

- You won't need any toxic detergents to clean your household
