DIY Cleaning Products Ideas

Vinegar and Water:

For an all-purpose cleaner that clean most things,
combine and then pour into a spray bottle:

  • 1/3 cup distilled water
  • 2/3 cup white vinegar
  • And a little bit of liquid soap

NOTE: not for use on stone as it can dull the surface. This should not be used on Aluminum.

Baking Soda:

Combine baking soda with lemon juice to create a
paste to which when applied and left to stand on burnt or baked on stains, helps remove them.

Hydrogen Peroxide:

Combine baking soda with hydrogen peroxide to create a paste that can be used to clean lots of different things.

Applying the paste to grout, scrub with a brush, then let stand for 20 minutes before rinsing. Apply paste to pots and pans to help remove tough baked on stains.

Castile Soap:

A type of soap made from plant oils which is a good all around cleaner that is non-toxic and biodegradable.

NOTE: Do not combined with any vinegar solutions as it can leave a white residue that is hard to get off.

Floor Cleaner:

Combine in a bucket ¼ cup of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Dawn liquid dish soap, and a ¼ cup of washing soda. Add about 2 gallons of warm to hot water to the bucket and you are ready to clean the floors.

Brass Polish:

Squeeze lemon juice onto a sponge and then sprinkle generously with salt. Polish the item by scrubbing with the sponge, then rinse and dry.

Cleaning cutting boards also uses half a lemon which is rubbed over the surface and let it sit for around 10 minutes–sprinkling some salt over the board and then scrubbing adds even more cleaning power.

Copper Polish:

Apply ketchup to a cloth, then sprinkle with salt,
polish and rinse.

Silver Polish:

This is absolutely amazing. Line a sink or bucket with aluminum foil, put silver items on foil. then cover in boiling water, add 1 cup of baking soda and a little salt.
