Avoid Store Brand Cleaning Products If Possible

woman laying in green grass It’s such a luxury in the world we live in today to be able to walk down around the supermarket and be able to choose from many different cleaning products. Whether you’re looking for a stain remover, flea eliminator, or toilet cleaner, they have it all. Have you ever taken the time to actually look at the fine print listed on the product? Unfortunately, most of these convenient cleaning products available can be harmful to the health of your home.

When considering the health of your family, few things are as important than the state of your furniture and your flooring. On the other hand, nothing can harm the health of your loved ones more quickly than those potentially toxic and dangerous store bought cleaning products. We have a solution – make some do-it-yourself cleaners instead.

Make Your Own Bleach

Bleach bought from the store can contain harmful ingredients that are not beneficial to your family’s health. To make your own bleach at home, simply: combine ⅓ cup of fresh lemon juice, with ¾ cup of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. Next, add about 10 drops of lavender oil, or lemon, and mix everything well. This homemade bleach solution is a great way to have bleach on hand whenever your need it. It makes 4 litres and works well for those bathroom spills and stains you need to clean up around your house.

The Dilly-O on Do-It-Yourself cleaning

Having your own do-it-yourself cleaning on hand brings peace of mind to any mom or dad worried about their children. It lasts longer than most store bought brands and is also cheaper. All you need are things that you probably already have laying around the house – a spray bottle and some basic ingredients.

Here’s what you do: mix together 2 cups of cold water, 20 drops of tea tree oil, 1 teaspoon of dish soap and ½ cup of white vinegar. Pour all the ingredients into the spray bottle and shake vigorously. Now you are ready to clean areas of your home!
