If it’s important to you to use fewer toxic chemicals in your home, then the first place you should look to cut back on them is in your cleaner cabinet. We commonly use some pretty toxic chemicals when cleaning mildew off the grout, or hard water deposits off the faucet, or even just disinfecting the kitchen counters! The good news is, you don’t have to. Not only are natural household cleaners better for the environment and your family, they also are cheap to make! From fabric softener to oven cleaner, we have the best DIY natural household cleaner recipes out there, by great bloggers who care enough to share! So pick one or two you use often, and take a jump on over to their websites to check out the natural cleaner recipes… It only takes making small changes in the beginning to make a complete change in the end!

From the ‘Liz Marie Blog’, I love this recipe for DIY  laundry softener for a couple reasons… First, that jar with the chalkboard label is adorable…. Second, the recipe is so easy, and can be customized. You can use either a high end organic conditioner, or one from the dollar store! Check it out at her site!

  1. Unhappy Oven Cleaner says:

    Let’s tell you my story. I am married and have 2 kids. I went to visit my mom and left my husband alone for about a month. When I got back home, the oven was in an awful condition. Now, I should clean it but I do not want to damage the oven, so I will try some natural products. I believe that in that way the food will be healthier as well and the oven will not smell to toxic cleaning detergents. Thanks for your tip!

  2. Hey there….just want to let you know I tried the bathroom tub and tile cleanser….the baking soda, vinegar and dishwashing detergent…We have this tub with a textured floor that has been a royal pain to clean over the years….I used this mixture on half of it…left it overnight use a scrubber sponget on it …not elbow grease just a light scrub and Bang…a miracle! It came out so clean!…So I did the rest of the tub/shower….Thanks for posting!
