Do DIY Cleaners Really Work?

Yes. There are natural ingredients that can handle ordinary household grease and grime. Mrs. Meyers liquid soap is non-toxic and has handled the every day cleaning for me.


What is DIY All Purpose Cleaner Made Of?

Distilled Water - Whenever making any homemade home or personal product, using distilled water will give your product the maximum possible shelf life. You can find distilled water at grocery stores and it is affordable. The next best options are filtered water and plain ol tap water.

White Vinegar -

All kinds of vinegar contain acid that brings brightness to foods or helps in food preservation. Distilled white vinegar is often used for cleaning because it is colorless and contains about 5 percent acetic acid.

Cleaning vinegar and distilled white vinegar are made in the same way—by fermenting alcohols distilled from corn or grains. Microorganisms (bacteria) process the alcohol into acetic acid and water, or vinegar. Cleaning vinegar contains around 6 percent acid, which actually makes it 20 percent stronger than distilled white vinegar.

(Use sparingly on natural stone surfaces)


Essential Oils - Some essential oils have excellent cleaning properties and they add a fresh, natural scent to your homemade cleaner. My favorite essential oil to use in this cleaner are lemon and lavender. It naturally disinfects and deodorizes and I just love a good citrus fragrance!  Rosemary is naturally antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, lavender has antibacterial properties and deodorizes, eucalyptus is antibacterial and freshening, and peppermint is antibacterial as well as antifungal.


Mrs. Meyers liquid Soap - Cuts through grease while making dishes clean and bright.  Biodegradable formula Dish Soap contains plant-derived degreasers to make grease disappear.  Mrs. Meyer's products are made with cruelty-free formulas and are Leaping Bunny certified. I am addicted to the lilac dish soap and buy it in bulk to use throughout the year!


  • What Kind of Bottle Should I Use?

  • Use what you have! I prefer glass spray bottles but I also re-use old plastic cleaning bottles that are empty. You can purchase reusable glass bottles at most grocery/superstores like Target and Walmart.
