12 Homemade Cleaners


A year or so ago, I went through our house and got rid of all toxic, un-natural cleaners. It was quite liberating.  Now we use vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, natural {store-bought} laundry cleaner and Biokleen. Most cleaners can be homemade which is incredibly budget-friendly as well as being healthy for your body…and the environment.

I’ve been researching how to make a different homemade cleaners and I’m really excited to share several that I can’t wait to try!

  1. I am SO going to try the homemade glass cleaner!! Traditional cleaning products’ fumes tend to bother me, but so many homemade versions of cleaning products don’t work {ones I have tried}. However, I’ve never seen THIS recipe for glass cleaner. It looks like it would actually work because of the dish soap in it.

    I have tried vinegar water as an “all purpose” cleaner before, and it was basically like using plain water – took a LOT of elbow grease without the same results as regular cleaner. Homemade Laundry Detergent and our laundry do not get along well – not sure if it’s our water or the make-up of our body oils.

    I hope at least some of these are a great success for you. 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing these. Some of these do still use ingredients with chemicals, (dish detergent Dawn) I was making my own for a while too, but found Melaleuca and haven’t been happier with their products, not to mention the extra time I have because I’m not making products!!

    1. True, Jennifer. I think Dawn is very mild considering. I was once a member of Melaleuca, but couldn’t keep up with ordering the required amount of stuff each month. It got pricey for us.

    2. Dawn is pretty mild. I am on a pretty strict budget, and I had no problem switching stores to Melaleuca. We reach our monthly points with just our vitamins though!

  3. I have tried the shower cleaner, Dawn and Vinegar, and it did great!!! I had tried using other cleaners, some from expensive companies and none cleaned the floor in my all-white shower. I mixed this and just poured it on the floor (didn’t have a spray bottle) then with a little scrubbing all the grime came off! I rinsed and saw a beautiful white floor! Yeah!!! 🙂

  4. Hey Myra! Thank you so much for linking up to my blog on this post! What a blessing it is to be shared by fellow bloggers!

    Liking your FB page so I can keep up with your new posts! 😀

  5. I use the mixture of vinegar and baking soda on my clogged sinks and it does wonders! Thanks for posting all these great tips. 🙂

  6. My favorite homemade cleaner that I use the most is my eyeglass cleaner. If you want to clean expensive coated lenses, you just put a little bit of baby wash in distilled water and there you go ! If you are cleaning some cheap readers, you can add a little rubbing alcohol to make it work better. This is much cheaper than paying $40/gallon for store bought eyeglass cleaner.

  7. Thanks for the interesting information – there’s nothing better than a clean, fresh, neatural house and one of the best ways of achieving this is through your carpets! As well as DIY solutions I also like to recommend oven cleaning birmingham professional companies to people because you can often surprise yourself at the price and how natural their cleaners are. Great post, thanks again.

  8. I’m looking for a cleaner like the Amish wood cleaner they advertise on TV. I have a great deal of wood to clean and need a lot of it. I want something that is very natural and good for the wood. I have a lot a allergy issues.

  9. For my window cleaning I use nothing but apple cider vinegar and newspaper and it works wonders.

  10. These are awesome DIY home cleaners that will help me in cleaning my house easily. The fact that it is around my house and won’t buy anymore, and recycling the orange peel is also a great idea.

  11. OMG!!! I am so amazed that simple products like baking soda and vinegar might be used as cleaners! I will try all of these cleaning recipes! Thanks for sharing! Surrey Carpet Cleaners Ltd.

  12. Prevent Static Cling Without Dryer Sheets by adding one cup vinegar to each wash load. Now you can give up costly dryer sheets forever.

    Best regards! Palmers Green Carpet Cleaners Ltd.

  13. I’ve already tried homemade citrus cleaner and I’m so happy of this. Thank you for all the recipes you share, I can’t wait trying some of them right this weekend!Greets!

  14. I have attempted the shower cleaner, Dawn and Vinegar, and it did extraordinary!!! I had taken a stab at utilizing different cleaners, some from costly organizations and none cleaned the floor in my everything white shower. I blended this and just poured it on the floor then with a touch of cleaning all the grime fell off!

  15. One day my maid left the tap open when we were not at home and after a few hours we came to know of it. We immediately called SK Cleaners and they saved our expensive carpets from permanent damage. The cleaners were very supportive and helpful during the service and we are so glad to have called them at the right time. Thanks to the entire SK team.

  16. I’ve tried the easy homemade oven cleaner, and it really does work! No more store bought oven cleaners for me! Thank you so much.

I finally found something that really cleaned my floors and didn’t leave any streaks on my dark-colored wood!
