Homemade cleaning products: Clear out your cupboards and clean
Here’s some ways you can find your ideal homemade multipurpose cleaner by using common household items together with some natural ingredients.
- Grease Cleaner. A homemade vinegar cleaner for greasy surfaces can be made from 50% dishwashing detergent and 50% distilled white vinegar. Spray some detergent where needed, let it sit for five minutes and then start cleaning.
- You can also use a homemade all-purpose cleaner for any tiles in your home. Sprinkle some baking soda on the affected area, spray some Hydrogen Peroxide on it and scrub with an old toothbrush.
- Homemade multipurpose cleaner. Combine two tablespoons of baking soda, 125ml of vinegar, 500ml of water and 15 drops of tea tree oil. This formula is for around the house but beware of using this or any other homemade vinegar cleaners on granite or marble as this can erode their finish.
- Wooden tables. Remove any water rings from wooden tables with an equal mix of baking soda and white non-gel toothpaste.
However, it’s possible to use a robust, store-bought cleaner which is just as safe and often equally or even more effective than homemade multipurpose cleaners. All cleaners, including natural cleaning products, need to be handled safely by testing them first before use and reading instructions carefully. And with a brand like Jif, you can use one product to clean your kitchen and bathroom and cut down on any cupboard clutter.
From cleaning your kettle with vinegar to making your own green cleaning products for your home, natural cleaning products are great for a variety of uses. For extra tough stains, you can rely on a commercial multipurpose cleaner like Jif for a solution.
