For all the Monica Geller’s out there, here are a few of DIY home-made cleaning recipes that will assist you in making all your surfaces sparkle.

Home-made All-Purpose Cleaner

  All-purpose cleaner is a must-have in your house to clean all types of hard surfaces and virtually wipe out germs. The procedure of making the cleaner goes like this:

  1. Take half cup of white vinegar,
  2. 2 tbsp. of baking soda, and
  3. Ten drops of essential oils, such as tea tree, lavender or lemon for their sterilising properties
  4. Blend all the ingredients well and store them in a glass amber spray bottle.

Glass Cleaner

Keep your windows and mirrors clean and clear with this home-made glass cleaner. The necessary components that you will need to prepare this glass cleaner include:

  1. 2 cups of water
  2. Half cup of cider or white vinegar
  3. One-fourth cup of rubbing alcohol (70 per cent concentration) and
  4. 1 or 2 drops of any essential oil (for its lovely scent)
  5. Mix all the components and keep them in a spray bottle. Shake the solution well before using.

Important Tip : Don’t clean windows on a hot, sunny day else the solution will dry fast and leave a lot of streaks on the glass.

Liquid Dish Soap

If you are expecting a big, bubbly soap mixture, then don’t get your hopes up with this solution. However, if you are looking for a liquid dish soap that is hard on the dishes yet delicate on your skin, then this solution will work wonders. The ingredients to make this liquid dish soap are:

Half cup warm distilled water

  1. 2 tbsp. kosher salt
  2. Half cup white vinegar
  3. Half cup Dr Bronner’s Sal Suds
  4. 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and

Lemon essential oil (for its aroma and disinfectant properties)

The recipe is as follows:

Mix warm distilled water with salt, and keep stirring until all the salt gets dissolved. Next, in a separate container, combine vinegar, sal suds, and lemon juice. Stir the blend into the salt water mix, and keep stirring until it becomes thick. Add a few drops of lemon essential oil for its fragrance and antiseptic properties. The dish soap is now ready. For convenience, store the soap into a dish soap container.

Wood Furniture Conditioner

The home-made wood furniture conditioner will nourish and restore your wood furniture. This conditioner’s making and application is a cakewalk. To make the wood polish, you will require:

  1. 1 tbsp. of olive oil
  2. 30 cup of distilled water, and
  3. 30 drops of essential oil, for example, pine, lemon, or lavender
  4. Combine these ingredients and store the liquid in a glass amber spray bottle; always jiggle well before using.

Always remember, white vinegar and baking soda cleans just about anything and everything.
We hope that these easy to make home-made cleaning recipes will be highly beneficial in your everyday cleaning processes.
