5 Must-Try Natural Homemade Cleaning Solutions

I am a huge fan of making your own stuff. Generally speaking I tend to make a lot more things for my home than I buy. But something I haven’t dabbled in too much is making my own cleaning solutions. I have semi-recently discovered a whole world on the Internet of simple DIY recipes for cleaning solutions for pretty much every room of the house. There is even an all-purpose cleaner! But just in case you don’t want to use that on every single thing in your home that needs cleaning, there are lots of other cleaning solutions to choose from.

From your garbage disposal (and yes, you should be cleaning it!) to your bath tub, there is a natural homemade cleaner waiting to be made, used, and loved! I am super excited to try all of these out and see the difference in both the cleaning ability and the overall experience. Let’s face it, a lot of cleaners out there can make you light headed and sick feeling after just a few minutes of cleaning with it. You won’t have to worry about that with these! You also won’t have to worry about your kids getting ahold of most of them either. All-natural means safe for everyone! Here are 5 must-try homemade cleaning solutions for your home.

    Salt? Yes. Grapefruit? Yes! I haven't tried this but you better believe I am going to as soon as possible. The salt acts as a scrub and the grapefruit, if you can keep yourself from eating it first, acts as a super-cleaner because of the acid in it. I can't wait to try it out!
