I try to stay clear of toxic cleaning products these days because with a toddler running around, everything is fair game to touch/eat/play with.
There are lots of “recipes” floating around for homemade cleaning products and I’ve consulted this site for solutions for specific messy problems.
The solution I always have made up is as easy as can be:
Homemade all-purpose cleaner
10 parts water
1 part vinegar
a few drops of tea tree oil
Spray it on, wipe it off!
I use this for everything! Counters, high chair, fridge, bathroom…
I’m currently experimenting with floor cleaners. My wood floor is so dull! I pinned this recipe because if the pictures are accurate, it makes the wood floor shine like… like something spectacularly shiny! It uses water, vinegar, isopropyl alcohol and a few drops of dish soap. I’m testing this one out as soon as I get my hands on a bottle of alcohol (the only alcohol I have is not appropriate for this use, wink wink!).
Do you make your own cleaners? Any tried and tested solutions you would recommend? Do you consult recipes or just experiment?
