How to Make Your Own Effective, Inexpensive, Safe Household Cleaners

Instead of spending money on expensive harmful chemical cleaners, why not make your own. They are easy to make and much safer than what you will find on store shelves.

If you have kids, you probably spend a good deal of time trying to get crayon or marker off your walls. And dirt, and whatever else they get on the walls. But if your walls are painted you have to be very careful what you use, otherwise the paint will come right off.

Here is a cleaner that won’t damage your walls, or your health.

Baking soda

Really, that is all you need. Just take a damp sponge put a little baking soda on it and it will remove just about anything from any painted surface – crayon, ink, pencil, marker, and it won’t damage the paint at all!.

Mold Fighter

1 Teaspoon Tea Tree Oil
2 Cups Water

Mix well and put in a spray bottle, a little goes a long way!

Wood Cleanser
This is a super easy polish that you can make to use on wood, it is also really effective and safe.

Small spray bottle

½ teaspoon olive oil

½ cup of lemon juice or distilled white vinegar

Mix ingredients in a spray bottle and polish. Using lemon will of course give you that lemon smell. But if you want the lemon smell to stick around- use lemon essential oil. Just a few drops to the olive oil. and start polishing your wood to a beautiful shine. The olive oil will give your wood a really nice shiny luster.

Glass Cleaner

50/50 solution of Vinegar and water

Mix together in a spray bottle. Now here is the trick- don’t use cloth or paper towels. Use newspaper if you can, that will give you the best clean plus it won’t leave streaks. The next best option would be cheese cloth or Microfiber.

Carpet Deodorizer
If you want your carpets to smell great, you will love this.

Baking soda.

Just sprinkle it over your carpet and let it set for an hour or so and then vacuum it up.

Amazing Air Freshener.

This is the perfect alternative to an aerosol or expensive fabric refresher.

Spray bottle


Favorite Essential oil

Simply take a spray bottle, fill with water and put in a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Shake and spray.
