Environmentally-Friendly Cleaning Products You Can Make at Home

Here are some more recipes for cleaning products you can make with household items you have in your cabinet.

Glass Cleaner

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of white or cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol
  • 1 or 2 drops of orange essential oil (optional for scent)
Mix the ingredients into a spray bottle. Spray onto a cloth or paper towel. Works great on windows and mirrors. Use a crumpled newspaper to remove streaks.

Rust-Away Scrub

  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/2 cup of borax
Rub the lemon in the borax and apply to rust stains on porcelain or enamel sinks and tubs. Rinse off. Do not use any acidic substance (like lemon) on marble or granite, as it will eat into the stone.

Remove Grease

  • 1/2 cup of sudsy ammonia
  • 1 gallon of water
Dip a sponge or mop into the solution. Clean and rinse with fresh water. Works great on oven hoods and grills.

All-Purpose Cleaner & Deodorizer

  • 4 tbsp of baking soda
  • 1 qt of warm water
Dip sponge into the solution and wipe kitchen counters, appliances, and use to clean the refrigerator.

Water Ring Remover

Mix non-gel toothpaste and baking soda in one-to-one ratio. Apply to a damp cloth and rub with the grain on the water ring spot. Dry with another clean cloth. Polish with a soft cloth. Do not use on unfinished wood, lacquer, or antiques.

Dishwater Freshener

Put 1/4 cup of powdered lemon or orange drink into the dishwasher's detergent cup and run a cycle. Gets rid of stains and leaves a fresh, citrus scent. Repeat if stains still persist.
