You don’t have to spend extra money on organic, all-natural cleaning products to replace traditional, chemical-laden ones. There are several ways to make your own kitchen cleaners using simple products you probably already have in your home.
- To clean kitchen surfaces including stovetop, counters, tabletops and chairs, inside of refrigerator, cabinet doors, sink, and more, make this simple recipe using vinegar and water: All-Purpose Kitchen Spray.
- For counters, make this simple solution of castile cleaner to use as an Anti-bacterial Countertop Spray.
- For scrubbing kitchen sinks to a sparkling shine, first spray with vinegar spray, then sprinkle with plenty of baking soda. Scrub sink, spraying with a bit more vinegar spray occasionally, then rinse. For tougher stains, form bubbly paste with vinegar and baking soda and allow to sit for a while before scrubbing. This is also a good recipe for stinky garbage disposals.
- To shine glass in your kitchen, use the same all-purpose kitchen spray.
- For cleaning kitchen floors, use either the 1:1 ratio of vinegar/water or make this castile and essential oil solution from Stacy at A Delightful Home.
- To make homemade dishwasher detergent, mix up this simple recipe of borax and baking soda, and use vinegar for the rinse agent.
