Thanks to various social media platforms and a growing interest in creating a more sustainable lifestyle, finding more green cleaning products is easier than ever. Whether you are looking to make your own non-toxic cleaning products that are natural, or buying some from your favorite retailer, the options are endless. Not only is this alternative better for the environment, but it could also be more cost effective for you considering many people already have the basic ingredients on hand to make some of these typical household cleaners.
Making DIY Green Cleaning Products
Although these homemade cleaning products tend to be less toxic, they aren’t completely safe so it’s best to keep them out of the reach of children and pets, as you would with any other household cleaners. According to The Spruce, a well-stocked natural cleaning kit will contain the following:
- Baking Soda – acts as a gritty scrubbing agent
- Borax – disinfects, whitens and deodorizes
- White vinegar – disinfects and loosens dirt
- Lemon juice – disinfects and cuts through oul/grease
- Olive oil – Cleans and polishes wood
- Castille soap – All-purpose cleaner
- Washing soda – Stain remover and laundry supplement
If you don’t feel like measuring or mixing the ingredients above, there are plenty of commercial natural cleaning products. While they may be a little more costly, they tend to clean just as well as the DIY mixtures with less scrubbing and scouring. This is a great choice if you are looking to go more green, but have a little less time on your hands.
