6 EASY and cheap DIY non-toxic household cleaning recipes 

Below I have posted some of my favorite DIY natural, non toxic, and cleaning recipes: 

Must haves:

 Castile soap

Baking Soda

Peroxide

White Vinegar

Distilled Water

Essential oils

Washing Soda

Rubbing Alcohol

Bamboo re-usable paper towels 

Product recommendation:  I use the Norwex floor system on my tile and hardwood, it is the EASIEST and quickest way to clean the floor. And the floors dry super fast. It comes with a dry pad for essentially dusting the floor and a wet pad….for hot water. No cleaner necessary!! The microfiber works great to clean. When you ring the microfiber pad out in between stroke you will be astonished on how much dirt comes out. For a local rep contact me I know a great one. 

1: DIY floor cleaner:

1/4 cup Castile soap

2 gallons hot water

(1/4 cup distilled white vinegar, if the floor is greasy….as a rinse after)

10 drops Essential oil of your choice (optional). Today I used Medieval (because of the anti bacterial, fungal, and viral benefits), but Lavender, lemon, orange, Peppermint are all great too.

 **Castile soap is must have for any house hold. I do the majority of my cleaning with Castile soap. Here are SOME of the things you can use Castile Soap for:


Shampoo

Face wash

Body wash

Toothpaste

Veggie wash

Dish soap

Laundry detergent

Dishwasher detergent

Carpet/leather/upholstery cleaner

ANY SURFACE CLEANER (GRANITE, HARD WOOD, TILE, LINOLEUM, ETC)

Tub/sink scrub

Pet shampoo

2: **3 EASY and CHEAP all purpose cleaners**
 All purpose cleaner: 

1 part white vinegar

1 part distilled water

10 drop EO


 3: All purpose cleaner:

Peroxide in a spray bottle (they sell it in pharmacy with a spray attachment on it), must be in a dark bottle!

This is the best and cheapest cleaner, I love it for bathrooms!


 4:  All purpose, granite safe cleaner. Here is the recipe:

Amber glass bottle…got mine from Amazon. (You can also use a regular spray bottle, this one can just be used over again)…and it looks cool
