I’ve just started to really think about the subject and am trying to convert some of my products to a more natural option. With that being said, here are some great ways to spring clean with homemade natural products that really work!
A Great All-Purpose Cleaner- Vinegar with lemons, soak for 2 weeks strain and use as an all-purpose cleaner.
Wood Furniture Polish- try using coconut oil with a microfiber cloth to polish.
Cleaning Grout- Never fun! Try making a baking soda and water paste, rub on grout and then spray vinegar on to create a foaming action.
Cleaning and Deodorizing your Carpets- Baking soda! Sprinkle through and vacuum up.
Natural Fly Repellant- Basil is a natural fly repellant so do planter boxes on your decks and not only repel the flies but have delicious basil for cooking
Washing Vinyl Siding- Make a mixture of 70% water and 30% Vinegar. Put in bucket and wash siding with it.
Another Furniture Polish- Try 2 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon juice. Leaves your furniture shining.
