How to Make Your Own House Cleaners

by admin 01 Jan 2013
Making your own cleaning products can save you money and help you be more self-sufficient. With natural cleaners like baking soda, vinegar, citrus and borax, you can make a variety of concoctions that will help you keep your house natural and clean. Feel free to comment below to tell us what natural remedies you’ve used for cleaning. Powdered Laundry Soap • 1 Bar Soap (preferably Olive-Oil-based) • 2 cups Borax • 3 cups Baking Soda 1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. 2. Evenly spread 2 cups Baking Soda onto a shallow pan and allow the soda to bake for about a half an hour. Watch the baking soda to make sure that it is baking evenly. You should notice that while it starts out as powdery, crystallized and clumps together easily, that it begins to to become grainy, dull, opaque and form into separate grains. Make your own natural cleaners3. Once the Baking Soda has finished, allow to cool. 4. While cooling, begin to grate the bar of soap. 5. Once cooled, combine grated soap, 2 cups Borax, 1 cup Baking Soda and 2 cups of the cooked Baking Soda into a container and cover. 6. Use about ¼ cup of the mixture per washing load of wash. All-Purpose Cleaner • 1 tbsp White Vinegar • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice • 1 tbsp Olive-based (Castile) Soap • 1 tbsp Borax Simply add all the contents together into a spray bottle and use as a cleaner. You can use this to clean up spills or messes in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. Bathtub Cleaner • 1 cup Baking Soda • ¼ cup Salt • 10 drops Citrus Oil • 5 drops Tea Tree Oil Have a tough buildup in your bathroom? Combine all the ingredients and store in an airtight tub. You can use this scrub to help you with all Carpet Deodorizer • 1 cup Borax • 1 cup Baking Soda We had a spill next to our fridge that this would have worked perfectly with. Combine the ingredients and store in an airtight tub. Oven Cleaner • 1 Small box of Baking Soda • 1 cup liquid Olive-based (Castile) Soap Mix ingredients in a bowl until smooth. You can then apply the mixture to a cloth and apply to the oven. Just wipe it clean and you’re done! Tile Mildew Scrub Simply spray lemon juice or vinegar onto tiled surfaces, like a shower wall, and allow it to sit for a few minutes. After it’s sat, scrub it with a stiff brush. Window Cleaner • 2 tablespoons White Vinegar • 1 gallon water • Newspaper Cleaning windows is simple when you have the right ingredients. Combine 2 tablespoons of White Vinegar into a gallon of water. You can then transfer the mixture to spray bottles to wash your windows. You can also use the newspapers to wipe the windows down without streaks. While paper towels might leave streaks, newspaper won’t! Carpet Cleaner For big messes, it’s helpful to dump a few cups of cornmeal onto a carpet spill. Wait 5-15 minutes. Simply vacuum up the cornmeal when you’re done, it should absorb the spill pretty quickly. Drain Declogger • ½ cup Baking Soda • ½ cup Vinegar • Boiling Water Use a simple chemical reaction to help you unclog your sinks. Pour a ½ cup of Baking Soda down the drain and then a ½ cup Vinegar. Immediately seal off the drain and allow the fizzing to clean out the pipes. After a half hour, pour boiling water down the drain to wash away everything.
