Spring seems to be the time to clean! From floors and cabinets to stove tops and carpet stains, a homemade all-purpose cleaner can do it all. You can make a batch of effective, non-toxic cleaner with simple ingredients that costs a fraction of what you’d pay at a store.
Many store-bought cleaners have additives like color and fragrance, as well as harsh and unnecessary agents that can affect household air quality, be a risk for children and pets and harm your household pipes as well as the sewer pipes we share.
If you’re ready to make your own green cleaners, try some of the recipes on our website. Replace your blue, ammonia-based window cleaner with club soda. Or try our all-purpose cleaner below.
Once you fall in love with these cleaners, you may want to rid your house of all kinds of toxic cleaners and chemicals. For safe disposal, please take them to a Household Hazardous Waste facility.
