I love having a clean house and I love the fresh smell after cleaning. What I don’t love is the fact that those cleaning products I just use and that scent I smell are both toxic.

25 homemade natural cleaning recipes

Why Non Toxic Cleaners?

Traditional cleaning products contain harmful ingredients known to cause all kinds of problems in our bodies.

You know when you clean the bathroom and you start coughing or having trouble breathing because of the cleaners you are using? Yeah that’s not good.

These chemicals that we are using to clean our homes are just causing us harm.

The ingredients in these cleaners can contain carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and skin irritants. Natural cleaning products are better for the environment, your home and your health. 

Why DIY cleaning products?

You could go out and buy natural cleaning products and that would be fine but why not DIY them?

These recipes are so simple to make and most of the ingredients you already have on hand.

Plus it can be more environmentally friendly because you are reusing spray bottles instead of going out and buying new ones while you throw away the old one.

Now let’s get into the recipes!
