How To Make Your Own Chemical-Free Cleaning Products

There are hundreds of different kinds of cleansers out there for your home, but most of them are made of harsh chemicals, which can be really detrimental to your household in the long run. We also understand that organic cleaning products (as good as they may be) are really expensive. Not to worry, the good news is that you can make your own chemical-free cleaning products from just a few ingredients in your kitchen!

  • 4 litres of warm water (bucket)
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar
  • A small squeeze of castile soap
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
