I prefer to make my own products because then I know what I am using in my house and I don't need to include any unnecessary cosmetic ingredients. I am also saving money by not buying green washed cleaning products. Here are my recipes, feel free to use them for your own home cleaning needs.
Clarity Window Spray
5 ml soap
15 ml white vinegar
10 ml alcohol (rubbing alcohol works fine or a grain alcohol like vodka)
20 drop of eucalyptus oil
500 ml of water (steam distilled is fine or tap water)
I usually filter this mixture through a coffee filter to remove any impurities in the vinegar and then fill the nearest spray bottle.
Refresh Counter Cleanser
70% rubbing alcohol
20 drops of grapefruit oil
Alcohol kills viruses, which is why I use it in this recipe. It needs to be at a concentration of 70% in order to be effective so that is why this spray is so concentrated. I use the grapefruit oil because it has anti-microbial properties and also covers the alcohol scent well. Again put this in a spray bottle. I love using this spray as a toilet seat cleaner.
Stainless Steel Polish
250 ml holly oil (or an unscented mineral oil)
10 drops orange oil
To clean stainless steel to a high shine, I wash the steel surface down with soap and a microfibre cloth. Once it is dry, I use paper towel and about a teaspoon of this polish to coat the entire surface. Once the surface is coated I go back over it and buff it to a beautiful shine.
