Homemade Natural Cleaning Products

Over the weekend I finally tackled one of my resolutions for this year, which was to switch to natural cleaning products for our home. Not only did I want to toss the chemical-based, heavily scented products (that never fail to give me a headache), I wanted to switch to all-natural sprays and disinfectants, and I wanted to make the cleaners myself (after all, they're mostly just vinegar!)

This is one DIY that really couldn't be easier! I picked up a few simple products from the drug store: vinegar, distilled water and rubbing alcohol, and then I spent no more than half an hour mixing up my new cleaning products. If you're thinking about making the switch for your home, I recommend picking up some cheap spray bottles the next time you're at the dollar store, of just reuse empty spray bottles from the cleaners that you currently use. (Method brand, in particular, is packaged in nice clear bottles). 

To make these natural products you need little more than vinegar and water (distilled water is best as it is less likely to leave streaks, but it's not strictly necessary) And if you choose to scent your cleaners, you'll need essential oils.

Like choosing a flavour for your homemade candies, choosing an essential oil for a DIY project is always the best part! I love going to the store in search of my new favourite scent, and I've used essential oils to make all kinds of natural home and body products, recently I've made wintergreen body scrub, grapefruit lip balm and eucalyptus mason jar candles. To make my cleaning sprays I used the typical 'clean' scents of citrus, mint, and eucalyptus.
