Eco-Friendly Natural Cleaners

Ever find yourself using a cleaning product and you have to leave the room because the scent is so strong and you have to leave the room? Why pay for expensive cleaning products when you can create them at home for half the price using everyday products within your home? These recipes are especially great if you have children at home!

3 things you need...
  • Plastic bottles ( you can find these cheap at your local dollar store, they always have them)
  • A Sharpie or other permanent marker
  • 1 trip to the grocery store

Sophie Uliano's Veggie Cleaner Spray (for those who can't buy organic)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract (available at your local health food store)
Combine ingredients in a large container then transfer to a spray bottle. Spray on produce, and rinse after 5 to 10 minutes.


All Purpose Surface Cleaner
  • white vinegar
  • salt
Mix together equal parts and spray.


No-Streak Glass Cleaner
  • 1/4 cup of undiluted white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 quart warm water
Divide into spray bottles and spray for sparkling mirrors and windows.

It's that easy! Using all natural cleaners in your home is a "win-win" situation. You can also buy these products online or at some health food stores. Enjoy!
