Household cleaners can be expensive and full of chemicals. But did you know that you can make your own natural household cleaners using simple ingredients from your pantry?
In this post, we'll show you how to make three different types of natural household cleaners — all of which are safe for use around kids and pets.
So ditch the toxic cleaners and try making your own today!
There are many reasons to switch to natural cleaners.
First, they're better for your health. Chemical-based cleaners can off-gas into the air, causing respiratory and other health issues.
On the other hand, natural cleaners are made from simple ingredients that won't harm your health.
Second, natural cleaners are better for the environment. Chemical-based cleaners can pollute the air and water, and they often come in plastic bottles that end up in landfills.
Natural cleaners are made from biodegradable ingredients, making them much friendlier to the environment.
Finally, natural cleaners are often just as effective as chemical-based cleaners — in some cases, they're even more effective. That's because the chemicals in cleaning products can actually break down surfaces over time, making them more challenging to clean.
Natural cleaners won't damage surfaces, and they'll leave your home feeling clean and fresh.

As the name suggests, all-purpose cleaners can be used on various surfaces. They're perfect for cleaning up spills, wiping down counters, and cleaning windows.
The most straightforward all-purpose cleaner is made with just water and vinegar. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant, and it's also great for cutting through grease and grime.
To make an all-purpose cleaner with vinegar, combine equal parts of water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Then, add a few drops of essential oil to give your cleaner a fresh scent. Lavender, lemon, and tea tree oil work well in natural cleaners.
If you don't like the smell of vinegar, you can also make an all-purpose cleaner with water and lemon juice. Lemon juice is a natural disinfectant, and it has a refreshing scent.
To make a lemon juice all-purpose cleaner, combine 1/2 cup of lemon juice with 1/4 cup water in a spray bottle. Then, add a few drops of essential oil to give your cleaner a fresh scent.
Windows can be tough to clean, but this natural window cleaner will make the job a breeze. This cleaner is made with water, vinegar, and rubbing alcohol. The vinegar cuts through dirt and grime, while the rubbing alcohol gives the cleanser a streak-free finish.

This natural toilet bowl cleaner uses the power of vinegar to clean and disinfect your toilet. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant, and it's also great for cutting through grime.
To make a natural toilet bowl cleaner, simply combine 1/2 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of water in a spray bottle. Then, add a few drops of essential oil to give your cleaner a fresh scent.
Some people like to add a squirt of liquid dish soap to their cleaner, but this isn't necessary. The dish soap helps to break up the grime, but it isn't required for cleaning power.
Simply spray the cleaner around the inside of your toilet bowl and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, scrub with a toilet brush and flush.
This natural tile and grout cleaner is made with hydrogen peroxide, a natural disinfectant. Hydrogen peroxide is also great for breaking up tough stains.
To make a natural tile and grout cleaner, combine 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup of water in a spray bottle. Then, add a few drops of essential oil to give your cleaner a fresh scent.
Spray the cleaner on your tile and grout and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, scrub with a brush or sponge and rinse clean.
Making your own natural household cleaners is a great way to save money and avoid harmful chemicals. Besides, it's really not that hard to do!
By following the recipes above, you can make all-purpose cleaners, window cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners, and tile and grout cleaners.
