Homemade Cleaners

are one of the first places to start. Making your own cleaning products is an easy task and an efficient one for cleaning your home!

Here a few home cleaners that you can make that will make your home smell and look beautiful and fresh:

All Purpose Cleaner:

½ Spoon of White Vinegar

2 tbsp Baking Soda

10 drops of Lavender or Lemon Oil

Mix all of the ingredients in a clean spray bottle (glass is best) and fill to the top with water. Gently shake to mix ingredients, and then spray, wipe with a cloth, and allow it to dry.

Kitchen Cleaner:

1 ½ cup of Baking Soda

½ Liquid Soap

10 Drops of Lavender or Lemon Oil

Mix baking soda and laundry soap in a mixing bowl, stirring vigorously to combine into a paste. Add essential oil and mix well. Store in an airtight food container. If the mixture begins to dry out, add a small amount of water and mix well.

Homemade Oven Cleaner:

½ cup baking soda

2-3 Tbsp water

White Vinegar (1/2 cup)

In a small bowl, mix ½ cup of baking soda and stir in 2 – 3 tablespoons of 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 that 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.
