Posted on 11 March 2020

Change up your spring cleaning routine this year by incorporating natural household ingredients you probably already have plenty of and are more powerful than you think! Here are some great natural recipes that can handle everything from carpet stains to kitchen grease.


1. Natural Kitchen Cleaner:

Ingredients:
  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar

      Directions: Boil vinegar on a stovetop or with the microwave. Sprinkle baking soda over your grease stains and dirty pans and add the hot vinegar. Let your mixture sit for 30 minutes before wiping with a sustainable rag made out of old clothing pieces.

      LNBF Tip: For a DIY cleaning cloth, cut up old pieces of clothing (the more absorbent, the better) for a sustainable and budget friendly solution to clean while upcycling old garments.  

      2. Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

      Ingredients:
      • 3/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide
      • 1 tsp liquid soap
      • 1/2 cup white vinegar
      • 10 drops of tea tree oil
      • 20 drops of lavender essential oil
      • 2 cups of water
        Directions: Add the ingredients to a large spray bottle and shake well before using. Sprinkle on baking soda for an added boost and scrub away!

        3. Homemade Air Freshener

         

        Ingredients:

        • 3 cups of water
        • 1 cup of vodka
        • 10-20 drops of essential oil
          Directions: Simply add all the ingredients to a large spray bottle and mist into the air of your room.

          4. DIY Carpet Stain Remover

          Ingredients:

                  • 1/4 cup table salt
                  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
                  • 1/4 cup borax powder

           

          Directions: Combine the ingredients into a paste and apply it to the stained carpet area. The natural paste acts as both a stain remover and deodorizer! After you vacuum, simply clean the area with water to remove the residue, and blot with a dry cloth.
