How To Make Organic Homemade Cleaning Solutions

Organic Homemade Cleaning Solutions

You may already have several ingredients in your kitchen that work well as inexpensive all-purpose cleansers, such as vinegar and baking soda. So instead of rushing to the shop the next time you are confronted with a significant mess but are out of your favorite cleaning product, consider making one of these organic homemade cleaning solutions that work.

Using these organic treatments will relieve your wallet and keep your kitchen clean. DIY cleaners can range from all-purpose cleaners to natural glass cleaners and a remedy for dirty hardwood floors. We list the products you’ll need, the majority of which you’re likely to already have on hand, and instructions for creating and using the cleaning solutions. These organic homemade cleaning solutions can be just what you need for everyday cleaning.

1) Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

It is vital to know the shelf life of these organic cleaning solutions. Most organic, do-it-yourself cleaning products can last up to a month. However, the efficacy of these homemade solutions, such as hydrogen peroxide, decreases quickly. Making enough mixture for a single use is your best bet.

You can read for a detailed explanation of each recipe or check out our various cleaning recipes below.

What you’ll require:

  • One cup of white vinegar
  • One cup of water
  • Lemon rind
  • Rosemary sprigs

Before using, mix the above ingredients, pour them into a spray bottle, shake it, and let them steep for a week. When finished, you may use the homemade all-purpose cleaner to handle a wide range of tasks, including cleaning garbage cans, removing wall smudges, and more. The lemon rind may increase cleaning power and provide a fresh smell.

Caution: Be cautious when cleaning stainless steel and avoid using acidic cleaners on granite because they will etch the stone. Some manufacturers advise against putting vinegar on the surfaces of their appliances.

2) Kitchen Cleaner And Deodorizer

What you’ll require:

  • Four tablespoons of baking soda
  • One quart of warm water

This DIY kitchen cleaner requires only baking soda to clean kitchen surfaces, appliances, and even the inside of your refrigerator. Baking soda is one of the ingredients also used to polish stainless steel sinks and appliances and acts as a terrific deodorizer. Use the homemade baking soda mixture described above to deodorize, or pour baking soda directly from the box into your drain or garbage disposal to remove odors.

You can also make a mixture of water and baking soda to polish and clean stains from stainless steel. Using a damp cloth, apply it, and then rub it gently in the grain of the metal. Dry it thoroughly after rinsing.

3) Homemade Glass Cleaner

What you’ll require:

  • Two cups of water
  • Half a cup of cider vinegar
  • One-fourth cup of rubbing alcohol 70% concentration
  • One to two drops of orange essential oil (optional)

With this homemade cleaning solution, your windows and mirrors will sparkle. Making a homemade cleaner from the supplies you already have in your kitchen is as easy as combining these ingredients and pouring them into a spray bottle. Orange essential oil not only cleans well but also adds a pleasant natural citrus aroma, and the rubbing alcohol helps it evaporate rapidly, reducing spots and streaks.

Caution: If you clean your windows on a hot, sunny day or in direct sunshine, the solution will dry too rapidly and produce lots of streaks. Spray the solution on a paper towel or soft cloth and then wipe the mirrors to remove spots and dirt.

4) Homemade Brass cleaner

What you’ll require:

  • White vinegar or lemon juice
  • Table salt

To clean tarnished brass cabinet pulls, ornamental ware, fixtures, and other items, you should moisten a sponge with vinegar or lemon juice. Gently scrub the surface. Thoroughly rinse with water or a clean moist cloth, then quickly pat dry with a clean, soft cloth.

5) Homemade Heavy-Duty Scrub

What you’ll require:

  • Half lemon
  • Half a cup of borax powder

This powerful homemade cleanser will remove rust stains from porcelain or enamel sinks and tubs. Scrub the surface with the lemon in the borax, then rinse. Experts do not recommend this cleaning solution for marble and granite. Borax is a laundry booster that may be purchased from Amazon or found in the detergent section.

6) Homemade Grease Cleaner

What you’ll require:

  • Half cup of sudsy ammonia
  • One gallon of water

Remove grease from your kitchen and oven with this homemade cleaning solution. Using sudsy ammonia that contains detergent on metal surfaces helps remove tough grime. Mix half a cup with one gallon’s quantity of water. Then, using a sponge dipped in the solution, wipe over the surface of your oven racks, stove hood, and grill before washing with clear water. If necessary, add extra ammonia to the mixture and soak grill grates and oven racks. 

Caution: Since ammonia can discolor metal and create pitting, avoid applying it on aluminum.

7) Natural Marble Cleaner:

What you’ll require:

  • Two drops of mild dishwashing liquid
  • Two cups of warm water

This homemade cleanser with suds is suitable for cleaning marble. Next time you want to clean natural stone countertops, mix two drops of dishwashing soap, like Dawn, with water. Utilize a sponge to clean the marble from any soap residue, then thoroughly rinse. Keep the marble moist, and don’t let it air dry.

Caution: Any acidic cleaner, such as vinegar, lemon, or lime, will etch marble and granite surfaces. So, avoid using such a cleaning solution on marble and granite.

Organic homemade cleaning solutions can be as effective as store-bought cleaners for many purposes. It may also be necessary to scrub more or repeat the application depending on the condition of the surface you are cleaning. Even those labeled “all-purpose” cleaners aren’t suitable for all surfaces and purposes, just like commercial cleaners.
