Wondering how to save money and use more natural ingredients to clean your home? Cleaning Expert, Melissa Maker, will show you her 5 favorite cleaning recipes! Visit for the full post.

Here’s 5 MORE!

You likely have all these items in your house as it stands; so this should be relatively simple to put together.

Remember, it is wise to use these as a compliment to products you buy in-store. Store bought products and homemade products both serve a purpose. I use about 50% store bought and 50% homemade cleaners in my house.

The 4 key ingredients you’ll require are:

Vinegar – mild disinfectant, grease cutter, de-scaler, glass cleaner

Dish soap – neutral pH – gentle and safe on essentially every surface and a mild soap that can lifts off dirt and grime

Rubbing alcohol – at least 65% USP in order for it to qualify as a disinfectant, can be mixed with water

Hydrogen peroxide – naturally occurring bleach, used in Oxy powders. Uses oxygen to break bonds between dirt and bacteria and the surface they are on. A great disinfectant, stain remover and natural whitener.

Baking soda – abrasion, deodorizing, great for replacing a scouring powder. It’s not actually used in any of the recipes but can be used to boost cleaning power by sprinkling on a sprayed surface.

If you wish to, select an essential oil that you like (and perhaps has some extra beneficial properties) and add 10 drops to the bottle.

Here are the recipes:

Glass cleaner – 50/50 water and vinegar mix, use to clean windows and mirrors – smell dissipates quickly

Disinfectant – 50/50 water and rubbing alcohol, use to spray and leave after you’ve cleaned a surface, only use where required i.e. points of contact, cutting boards, bathrooms etc. Note that a disinfectant does not necessarily clean (i.e. lift dirt off) so this is the 2nd part of a two-step cleaning process (first part is the actual cleaning with a cleaner).

All-purpose cleaner – 1-2 tbsp dish soap per bottle of water. Great to use for cleaning kitchen, bathroom surfaces, hallways, most furniture. Won’t leave residue behind. If you are finding residue, reduce the amount of dish liquid being used (they vary in recipes).

Tub and tile cleaner/degreaser – 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup dish liquid. Use for soap scum on tiles and glass, greasy kitchens etc. Spray, let it sit for 5 minutes and start to clean.

Stain remover – 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 cup dish liquid. Amazing, simply spray on a stain, rub it in, rinse it out. Can also be used as a pre-treatment for stains. Test in an inconspicuous area first as the hydrogen peroxide may discolour.

Some general tips:

Label bottles using easel tape and a permanent marker (easel tape is much easier to remove than a sticker label and is more water-resistant). Label the ingredients, date and name of product.

Use clean bottles and triggers only – don’t use a bottle from another product until the trigger and bottle have been thoroughly rinsed and do not spray out or smell like the old product.

Use different shapes, colours and sizes of bottles if possible to further ensure you are using the correct product.

Make enough for 1-2 months of use and that’s it. These don’t have the same stabilizers that store-bought products do. Less additives means lower shelf-life.

Never mix a recipe that you make up yourself without checking to see if it is safe to do, some items you cannot mix together!

Remember, a cleaner does not disinfect and a disinfectant does not clean – clean first, disinfect second (many store-bought products can do both).

Do you have any great cleaning product recipes that you want to share? We would LOVE to hear them!

  1. Vodka does not kill COVID-19, but can it replace rubbing alcohol in all-purpose cleaner for minimizing streaks? If so, is it safe for sealed wood? Thanks for all of your videos.

  2. Hi watch your videos n like them need to know are rubbing alcohol n hydrogen peroxide same if not which one is best

  3. Very well explained. Good job!

  4. make cleaning products ok woman

  5. Remember if you have pets watch what oils you use.

  6. Im a house keeper and 11yrs years now were using all what she mention and it was really great result and less money and more on in eco.all i want to try now is the hydrogen peroxide as stain remover🤩🤩

  7. Great video, Love how You’re so Organized and straight to the point. No confusion. Thank You So Much ❤️ Blessings,!

  8. I really wish the background music wasn’t so loud. 😕

  9. Thanks for sharing 🥀🥀🥀🌈

  10. Good old fashioned soap and water will do it too.

  11. What strength of hydrogen peroxide do you use?

  12. Have been looking for a homemade cleaner to clean the top of my glass stovetop instead of using that expensive cream – any suggestions would be most helpful – thx from Canada

  13. Can you use any dyi cleaner to clean your leather microfiber couches to remove food prints from kids or pee spots accidents?

  14. Some of us have allergies to store bought products.

  15. Like everybody, I started watching your channel accidentally. I’m in
    that category which thinks that knows to clean like a professional. I
    have my own tricks and homemade combinations of products. Little by
    little you conquered me. I borrowed some techniques, but I resisted to
    try your DIY CLEANERS. I live in Spain, so some cultural differences
    must be responsible. But I’m glad that you like our invention, the
    Castile Soap. In the end, thanks to you, I looked for information about
    sodium percarbonate. I understood its chemistry. I started to test it
    and I had a shock. My dear, I used the most corrosive products, like
    caustic soda or hydrochloric acid. And I don’t need it anymore!!!! I
    stop buying 14 cleaning products! Lady, you have a vision. And you
    changed mine. Thank you!
    BTW. I unsubscribed all the other cleaning channels. I preserve only

  16. Love the video and recipes. Background music distracting.

  17. I need to try cause stuff from store bother my allergies real bad

  18. I’ve heard, from a nurse, that lemon is anti virus, anti cancer and anti bacterial.

  19. Thnq u very much

  20. Believe it or not I started making my own cleanser because 1- I was curious how did people clean their homes even just 75 years ago and 2- because cleaners became all the sudden so expensive! The dollar store was not always dependable on having the products I wanted so I looked up on Pinterest a recipe and have been using DIY cleaners ever since.

  21. How about upolsetry cleaner? Do u have a diy or have u made video for that?

  22. People, ffs. Essential oils are not water soluble, they are hydrophobic, meaning t hey repel water. You can mix and shake all you want but they will separate from each other.

  23. Be careful about buying peroxide in concentrations higher than 3%. It can form explosive crystals in the light. That’s why brown glass is best for containers. Another point is to keep it in cooler temperatures to prevent the formation of those crystals.

  24. I watched whole video for chick

  25. You r fabulous and i like all your hack

  26. Music is really annoying..

  27. You’re great but hate that attention bell. It’s way too loud and so annoying.

  35. Dish soap should be natural other dish soaps has chemicals. Never mix hydrogen peroxide to vinegar.

  36. why is there porno music in the back. I cant get any info in my head, just porn stars from 80s pop up….

  37. I’m a one product does all kind of lady. Even though these products are inexpensive, they can run into money in the long run. I do look for all these when flea marketing, yard sells, etc.

  38. You almost lost me as a viewer. Lucky some dude mentioned the time the actual content started so I stayed. Ughhh

    1. What’s the matter….short attention span?

  56. I tried your concoction for cleaning soap scum and it worked beautifully, thank you so much!

  57. Diluted vinegar can also use to shine the faucets if it’s made of chrome or nickel, and fridge front too as well as interior part to sanitize.

  58. Would be nice to have you mention the recipe name FIRST, rather than after the ingredient list. I had to keep stopping video to write down, go back. Otherwise, can’t wait to try !!

  59. AWESOME video and very clear. Thank you so much!

  60. 2 questions.
    1. When your recipes call for dish soap can you use the castille soap that you often talk about?
    2. Do you find using castille soap instead of regular dish soap is way better?

  61. Hello
    Please tell me how I can make plastic cleaner. Ye then receptor.
    Thank you

  62. #USA #best #Empire #Cleaner #Website

  63. Hi Melissa can these products be used around the office?

  64. thanks for the video can you show how to make home made powder laundry soap

  65. What about for the all-purpose cleaner and add some bleach? Would that be a good all purpose cleaner?

  66. That bing is loud as hell

  67. Dishwashing soap and dish soap – which one of them?

    1. jylbek71 They’re the same thing. Different people call it by different names. In England, they call it, “Washing up liquid “. That’s probably why she refers to it by different names.

  68. Hi Melisa please make a video update on DIY cleaning products

  69. My glass cleaner as 50% distilled water, 25% rubbing alcohol and 25% white vinegar and it last for months or until I finish the bottle.

  70. can you use the disinfecting on glass? and can you use the multi-surface on glass?

    1. Nina Kh. You’ll probably get streaks and buildup

  71. I need an upholstery cleaner. Do you have any suggestions?

  72. What can I clean my fabric sofa with?

  73. You sexy

  74. Thanks much for this video

  75. One word “beautiful”👌

  76. Should I wipe my countertop with water again after wiping with dish soap water? Thanks in advance

  77. you are very helpful

  78. everytime i go to coffee shop the table is always greesy so im going with the all purpose spray and use wet wipes to wipe it off

    1. This is Cutie Ringo Joy LOL Isn’t that disgusting? I also hate being seated at a table with crumbs or food on the seat. I will usually tell the host/hostess. I love your idea.

  79. Hi. Im living in hong kong where r very polluted. Dust accummulate in just a night. Any good diy product to prevent dust?

    1. YUEN TING Big air purifier!! You’re also breathing all of that pollution into your body.🤕

Can you please, please tell me how to make a disinfecting, all-purpose cleaner which also uses essential oil (that you mentioned in your bathroom-cleaning video)? Blessings

  86. Amazing!!!

  87. Thanks for sharing, what about to wash clothes any recipes???

  88. Hi Clean my space. First love all your videos. Superb. Just want to ask, Can we mix Baking Soda or Vinegar in the all Purpose Cleaner or would it damage some things in our house.

    1. SABA ZEESHAN ALI It night bubble up. 😀

  89. Vinegar + dish soap really makes an odor that makes me think it is not too safe to breathe.

  90. Hj

  91. Melissa, do you think the rubbing alcohol blend is strong enough for cleaning cutting boards? I’ve always used bleach, and I am paranoid about germs that could cause e.coli, etc. like from raw chicken. But I’ve ruined too many clothes from bleach, so if rubbing alcohol is as an effective a disinfectant, I will (more than) happily switch!
    Also, from a previous video, I was wondering the brand of enzyme cleaner you use. I am not familiar with any of them. Thank you.

    1. I just used dishwashing liquid to clean cutting boards, hang to dry. No problem.

  92. Wish these ideas were available in spanish

  93. Bell sound is really irritating just like harsh chemical in cleaner.

  94. Might be a dumb question but does anyone know if these are all bird safe cleaning products? 🤔

  95. I will try these 2day, I want 2 have a more “green friendly” cleaning alternatives

  96. I have guinea pigs in my room so I don’t want me cleaning my room badly affect them

  97. Here is a tip to save money. Most dish washing liquid is concentrated, so mix concentrated dish liquid with 4parts water in a spray bottle , works great for dishes, also great for cleaning glassses quickly with a paper towel, That bottle of dawn will last for months instead of weeks. It is also awesome for cleaning mirrors~~

    1. Keywest Puma I also dilute Dawn dish soap for hand washing soap for my kitchen. It cuts grease and dirt really well for my husband to wash up after working outdoors. FYI My eye doctor said dish soap is great for cleaning eyeglasses but, don’t use paper towels to dry the lenses. The paper will scratch them. Use a non-fuzzy towel. Microfiber or a cotton dishtowel works great for me. 😀

  98. Can I use Castile soap instead of dish soap? Or it effective differently ?
    And also, does all purpose cleaner one can spray and clean the wood furniture ?

  99. Sorry if somebody may think my question is silly, but, when cleaning, do I need to rinse with water after puting the product in let’s say my countertops??
    I have been using only store bought products (like bleach) to clean my kitchen and bathrooms, and I rinse it several times before drying it. Is it the same with more natural products?? I assume you must rinse the dishsoap, because if I don’t, I get a streak, or not??
    Please, if some good soul can help me with this.
    Thank you!!
    This channel is the best!!!

    1. quejesuseselsenor Just curious, why do you rinse after you clean a surface? I understand a cutting board, but your counters in the bathroom, etc. You’re not going to eat off of those surfaces. Thanks 🙂

  109. Hi Melissa.. I’m looking for a natural cleaners.. can we use dishwashing liquid in that? Does it make all our products chemical free???

  110. I love love love your videos! They are extremely motivating! I hate cleaning so much that, well, let me just say I don’t let anyone inside my home! In fact, I don’t even want to be here! I have a bad back and standing upright makes me hurt tremendously! If I’m going to cause more pain it’s going to be something I enjoy doing like gardening. However, when cold weather comes along I have to clean! 😩 Your videos are a lifesaver! Thank you so much for your great info and for motivating me to get busy cleaning! BTW I use the same products you use except I’ve never tried Castile soap. It’s now on my shopping list! Thanks again and keep these videos coming!

  111. do you have any recipe for flies

    1. Gladys Illescas I do. A battery operated fly swatter. LOL I hate those nasty little things 😀

  112. I have seen previous videos where the 50 50 vinegar/water can be used for dusting also. just watch out for stone surfaces and being acidic could affect wood finishes?
    a couple drops of DW liquid and water I guess is what I’ll use for dusting.

  113. I love you channel and find amazingly helpful. Thank you

  114. Alcohol% aside.. didn’t anybody notice how chad cheekily captioned “65 percent usp” as “65 percent something”? Lol

  115. Very helpful! Thank you for making this video!1

  116. Hi, love your channel. Im a dentist at Dominican Republic. Not to be rude, but when you mix alcohol with water actualy taking the % of alcohol, due to this taking the desinfectan capacity. Also, there is alot controversy about about alcohol killing baterias and steaking* it into the surface. It is a a complex topic and needs more research… Thank you for your videos they help me a log

    1. I only use hydrogen peroxide and tea tree oil, is it ok?

  117. very nice youtube video, i actually love this youtube-site, keep on it
    It’s exhausting to seek out knowledgeable folks on this topic, however you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  120. Are these diy cleaners storable? If yes, how long can it be stored

  121. Why you flirt with people?

  124. can I use apple cider vinegar?

    1. Not at all, just white vinegar 9% acidity

  125. pings on videos are super annoying to me thank you

  126. why don’t you combine all of it in one spray bottle? wouldn’t that make your job way easier? all purpose spray cleaning is in one bottle so this should be too.

  127. ….but that ‘dinging’ tho. lol

  128. god. you talk too much!!

  129. wow you really like that bell don’t you.

  130. thumbs up for oilers!!!

  131. thanks, very helpful😀

  132. I make my own dish soap with 1 tablespoon of grated castile soap, 1 tablespoon of borax, 1 tablespoon of super washing soda, 1 tablespoon of white distilled vinegar, 2 cups of boiled water…
    mix all of these ingredients together until the soap and the powders are dissolved then let it sit for 8 hours or over night which will let it cool down and gel then wisk or blend the developed mixture until it is smooth. then transfer it into a container of your choice and add one half cup more water to make it squirtable and of course if you want a pretty scent and/or an extra boost of antibacterial function then use essential oils. you will never have to buy unnaturally colored chemically dish soap again and it costs next to nothing to make and these ingredients can be used for all other homemade cleaners too so you save a boat load of money! Happy Cleaning!

  133. Can you make a video on how to make waterless car wash solution?

  134. very interesting and useful videos. in my g;ass top gas stove there is dripping plate (for e.g. overflowing boiled milk etc) . This plate get dirty . how to clean this without spoiling glas top.

  137. thank you for this video💕 #kudos


  139. Lavender also is a natural flea repellent.

  140. Hi great video! I like disinfecting the toilet seats every other day, what can I use? Bleach is killing me!

  141. I still need an universal formula for all the items in the bottle.what should I use?

  142. FYI, according to Toronto Public Health, vinegar only cleans (just like plain water). It does NOT disinfect (even mildly!!!) Fact check!

    1. Also, I know that commercial cleaners – whether bleach or all purpose, when it’s mixed with water, it’s only good for a matter of hours before it needs to be dumped and replaced because it no longer disinfects.

      Do you know if it’s the same with natural mixed cleaners?


  144. My disinfectant is 50% white vinegar and 50% VODKA. I don’t use methyl alcohol…

  145. Should I use Super vinegar (cleaning vinegar) or just regular vinegar?

  146. Awesome!! What’s your option on Dr. Bronners Soaps? Do you have an recipes using these products? Thanks!!

  147. What is easel tape?

  148. OH 🙋one more🤔 Question 😌 do you use the Steam mop or hand-held one..?? If so.. would you recommend it…~ or ~Not – why not? 😁🤓😁 TANKS!!!🤘 BTW you are a cleaning 👐GOD👐👏👊

  149. 🤔Question🙋 So i have hard water. needless to say it doesn’t take long for that “fog” to show (only water alone in a cup). With that being said would it be best for me to get Gallon Bottled Water from the store???? or distilled water???? 😬

  150. 😱💿🎥💿

  151. Superb

  152. hey,with what diy solution did You cleaned the fridge? hi from România

  153. What are your favorite or “go-to” store-bought cleaners, Melissa?

  154. could u please share tips for cleaning stains from fabric sofa

  155. What are your recommended non-diy products?

    1. LA totally awesome from dollar store. They have a long line of cleaning products that get good reviews (laundry, windows, dish, degreaser, all purpose, etc.).

  156. thx!! 🙂

  157. soooo…I did the glass cleaner and when I start wiping my mirror, I seen the streaks and thought ummm…this isn’t working. A few seconds later, my mirror was SPOTLESS….😯😯😯…It ACTUALLY works…..I appreciate you ladies….

    1. I’m concerned about my place smelling of vinegar ???? I know it sounds silly, but I don’t like the smell. And did you use newspaper of microfibre cloth?

    2. PHOENIX i thought the same at first lol i love discovering new toxic-free homemade cleaners. I just started exploring and im so very happy with my recipes!

  158. very informative, Thank you

  159. could you throw some light on the properties of “acetone” . Thanks

  160. Do not use vinegar on granite countertops.

  161. The best thing about making your own is that you are not buying plastic bottles that will go into the recycling. You’ll be using one bottle o and over. Most plastics that go into recycling are down cycles into a form of plastic, such as a bench. These product are not able to be recycled and end up in the landfill or the ocean. In the landfill, the chemicals from the degrading plastic get into the ground water. These chemicals are cancerous and/or endocrine disrupters.

  162. A word on labeling: if you change bottle contents frequently you can sometimes label with a permanent marker. When it’s time to re-label, remove the marker with acetone or alcohol. It occasionally does not come off plastic completely, so I encourage you to spot check first. If you are using glass this me his works very well.

  163. Rubbing alcohol isn’t a disinfectant .-.

    1. Depending on the percentage…

    2. Abby Hernandez yes if is

  164. is there an all purpose cleaner for EVERYTHING

    1. Yeah…elbow grease 🙂

  165. Do you use clove oil at all. Its great for killing mold.and mildew. diluted in water as a spray or add directly with a cotton bud (q tip)

    1. suzanne knibb i never knew of this remedy. I am eager to test that one out 😉✌

    2. suzanne knibb Thanks for that tip I’ve been meaning to buy clove oil

  166. I love you and all of your wonderful advice! Thank you so much!
    But please, the pinging sound on the video, needs to go… (;^_^

  167. I’m definitely going to buy your book for me and one for my daughter. I love your channel! Congratulations!

  168. Hydrogenfluoride and water can do the job I think xD

  169. But cutie, you just said 65-70% R alcohol will act as a disinfectant. Why diluting it with water to get 35% solution?

  170. Melissa dear, please do some research before you make a video. Taking a 70% rubbing alcohol & mixing it with equal quantity of water makes it 35% viz useless for disinfection.

  171. Help!! I need to get red wine out of a silver table runner. I poured salt on it and let sit for a few hours and then I poured a can of club soda on it. The stain is less but still there!!

  172. Shes so gorgeous

  173. Hi Mellisa.. Can I use a 90% rubbing alcohol?

  174. 2:50

  175. How about cleaning pianos? Thanks for your help. Love your videos.

  176. Hello Melisa, I was wonder can you use vinegar on a glass top stove. If so do you have any good mixtures.

  177. how about an citrus cleaner. how do I make one and what to use?

    1. You can add a good quality essential oil instead of dish soap. It leaves no cheamicals at all, but desinfects instead. We need pretty clean countertabls, esp when we lie the dough on them. I shall never understand this trend to dillute everything. What’s the point of it all, if dilluted?! Ewww…

    2. Here’s what I do….add chopped up orange, lemon, and/or lime rinds to a large jar of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water.  Let it set a while (I usually leave it a week or two)….shake it now and then….and strain into a spray bottle.  You can add more liquid or rinds as you see fit.   I use it for light cleaning on surfaces: no need to rinse…and the room  smells great afterward…especially if you leave just a light mist on the surface to dry on it’s own. 

      If you want a bit of suds/extra cleaning:  put just a VERY SMALL amount (1 tsp?) of lemon scented dishwashing liquid in the bottom of the bottle before adding the mixture…..(I don’t use too much detergent, because I don’t want to have to rinse it later).

      I’ve done this also with a few branches of rosemary plants instead of the citrus rinds…..nice “pine” sort of scent that also smells very fresh if you leave a light mist on the surface to dry on it’s own.

  178. hi!love ur vids!what store bought products do u use? ur homemade products seem to cover everything. thx!

  179. Soo these ‘recipes’ have changed a bit to your most recent ones…! Thoughts?

  180. Hi Melissa! can i use cane vinegar instead of white vinegar? coz we got plenty of it..maybe i can use it? hope you reply.

  181. Just a helpful tip if you have high mineral water. Always use bottled water for any of these recipes and especially glass cleaner in order to get non-streak results.

    1. Bottled water is loaded with minerals because that’s what makes it taste good. Use distilled water that has No minerals. You’re using water as a solvent. Water with minerals will leave minerals behind when it evaporates. Don’t forget your high school chemistry. Just because bottled water comes out of a spring (or well) doesn’t mean it has magical powers…just that its been certified safe to drink, and of course pay ridiculous $$ for.

  182. Wow. Making some homemade cleaners and just noticed that the oz. measurments are in 2’s (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.) up to 22 but that the spaces between the numbers are not the same! They get wider as you go up. Seriously!?!? Am I missing something or am i reaping the benefits of buying the cheap container?

    1. Most likely because of the shape of the bottle. Bottles usually get narrower toward the top so that would explain the wider spaces between the numbers as you go up higher on the bottle.

    2. At the bottom they are like 1/4 of an inch apart but the become 1/2 inch apart at the top.

  183. I’m having the same problem as Sofia Nizami, only I live in Ecuador. Where can I find these products?

    1. As far as the baking soda, look for ‘bicarbonato de sodio.’ It’s the same thing. It’s used in baking, so maybe look for it wherever they sell sugar, flour, etc.

  184. It’s great idea to seve mony! Thank you.

  185. can i use artificial white vinegar

  186. Great info. I clean for a living so this will come in especially handy, as I want to keep expenses down and use less chemicals. Thanks.

  187. Hi Melissa, the stain remover will that work on carpet? I have standard tan carpeting in my apartment and I have cats (2) that vomit sometimes and it’s a orange because of the dry food they eat. Also an occasional hairball, so will this work to get the stains out without carpet discoloration?

  188. Hi , I like this video much. but you went through the ingredients slowly enough. but when you gave the recipes it was so fast I could not keep up.. are these written down somewhere?

  189. 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid and 2 tablespoons distilled vinegar. Put it in the small tank of a carpet shampooer and finish filling it up with hot water. I use this to clean carpets and it takes out almost any kind of stains.

    1. Sharon Mynes i

    2. kV cut

  190. Hi Melissa is the stain remover safe for coloured clothes ?

  191. What no epsom salt? Hmm…. plastic bottles and essential oils? Not a good combo – should also use glass when using essential oils.

  192. Thank you Melissa

  193. Hi! mellisa I want to say that from where we can easily order get BAKING SODA & VINEGAR for CLEANING? Because I live in LONDON UK so from AMAZON they don’t ship the baking soda & vinegar you use. I having a problem to find out. Please help me to find out. One more question: is BAKING SODA & SODA BICARBONATE are same?

    1. Hi
      Try Indian or Pakistani shop, I just bought a large bottle of vinegar- still trying to find a box of baking soda as the one I got is very expensive and small as well

    2. Try Wilko. 🙂

    3. Sofia Nizami you can get bicarbonate in any supermarket in London …as for vinegar, supermarkets have this too but bottles are small and curiously getting more pricey. You can get big gallon bottles from any Chinese shop …good luck

    4. Hi Sofia. Baking soda is the same as soda bicarbonate. White vinegar may also be called distilled vinegar in the UK. You should be able to find both products at your local grocer. I hope that help 🙂

  194. grt ideas to work on……thank u Melissa….

  195. what about plush animals how can you disinfect and sanitize it??

  196. Thank you so much love!!!

  197. great video!

  198. Thanks for the DIY cleaning tips in this video but the sharp screeching bells u use are so irritating I almost stopped half way through the vis.

  199. Can I please get a printed recipes of this 5: Soap, vinegar, alcohol, peroxide, baking soda. how much of each for the spray cleaner. Please I am an old lady and I need so see the recipes so I can print them
    Thanks so much.

    1. Nancy R Peters

    2. Nancy R Peters There are recipies in the description of this video (you may have to click “see more”. You can also visit the Clean My Space website , just under the video you will see a link to a download to print the recipe off

  200. I use one table spoon of dish washing liquid (blue dawn dish soap is what I use) one table spoon of baking soda, one cup of vinegar and two cups water. I use it on literally everything. It foams up because the baking soda and vinegar have a reaction. It helps if you add the water first then the vinegar and the baking soda last. I like it because I don’t have to worry about it harming myself or my family. Good luck on your cleaning journeys!

    1. Just a little bit of info.. the reaction that is happening between the baking soda and vinegar is actually the two cancelling each other out. Mixing baking soda + vinegar = neutral salty water. This is because baking soda is alkaline (higher on the PH scale) and vinegar is acid (lower on the PH scale). There are so many DIY recipes on the internet saying to mix the two but they are wrong. The two are better cleaning products if they are used separately 🙂 Spread the word

  201. Which store bought products do you find irreplaceable and remain in your cleaning arsenal ?

    1. Deborah Maguire diy toothpaste. Essential oils and baking soda with coconut oil.

    2. Toothpaste. I’d never diy toothpaste (simply not worth the risk).

    3. Deborah Maguire The ones you see on the table.

  202. give me some tip of greasy blinds …..back of my stove do much much much much greasy…I have tried so many thing but still ni effected

    1. Clean My Space no

    2. +hadi malik Those are some difficult areas to clean! Here are a few videos that should help you out…
      How to Clean Your Blinds! – Horizontal & Vertical Blind Cleaning ()

      Clean Greasy Range Hood Filters! How to Clean Your Stove Hood: Easy Cleaning Ideas ()

  203. Absolutely love this video for simple cleaning recipes! Awesome!

  204. Does it remove bacteria a lot?

  205. Nice video. I also like to use homemade products.

  206. Which store bought cleaners do you prefer, Melissa?

  207. great ideas and you are so beautiful

  208. I tried the dish soap- vinegar mix and it irritated my throat. Do I need to know anything about what kind of dish soap I can use?

    1. Jay Tuesday It shouldn’t have any bleach

  209. the mixing starts at 2:45….your welcome

    1. Thank you, I hate the lazy assholes who can’t take the time to listen to what someone has to say in a video. They are the same retards asking questions in the comments that were covered in the video they couldn’t be bothered to watch, It’s hilarious the extent of human laziness and ignorance @Nathan Cate

    2. Blueberry Fundip FFXIV i understand and agree it’s the internet everyone can say what they please. Everyone can be rude, complain, criticize, be hurtful, hateful or be nice and just act like a descent human being. It’s a choice how we treat people internet or not

    3. @MsBuggywuggy
      After all, it is my own opinion that others obviously share. I love the channel and follow them. I’m just not into long intros then very little actual content. If you can’t handle that then get off the internet cuz everyone will say as they please.

    4. @Blueberry Fundip FFXIV after all it is her video

    5. THANKS!

  210. what would you recommend cleaning the stove filter? it has alot of grease build up no matter how much I try to clean it 🙁

    1. Will it fit in you dishwasher? What if you soaked it in boiling water with a little degreaser? Finally, try an oven cleaner.

  211. Great tips!  What do you use to clean the exterior of your stainless steel appliances , like the refrigerator to eliminate streaks?

    1. Her most recent solution to this is a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. In an older video she used a solution of 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol and 1/3 cup vinegar. She also has this post on her website. Hope these help!

  212. you are sexy…

    1. You are a pervert…

  213. Very impressive and thorough. I use many of these combinations, already, but learned of some new ones. Thanks! Also, your tone is immaculate and your approach is a great balance of professional and perky/cool. Love it. Good job!

  214. hydrogen peroxide needs an opaque container because its sensitive to light. i don’t know where i read it before. just saying.

    1. Go To:

    2. Yeah. It’s best to keep it in the container it comes in or a dark (usually glass) bottle because it will get weaker over time and will be like water in a matter of hours

  215. great videos making me more excited about cleaning

  216. I was wondering what solution is best to put as DIY cleansing wipes. Like the Lysol wipes or the Clorox wipes.

  217. LOL Oilers

  218. i’m giving you 2 thumbs up; i like that

  219. melissa Idk y the baking soda leave surfaces white

  220. lov it

  221. gosh hun you are a really pretty young woman.

    1. What

    2. @Brandi Taber 😒

    3. Duh dude

  222. I love this minus the dish soap. I prefer the natural products.

    1. Try natural dishsoap. It’s pretty crappy but if u insist on it being natural it’s the closest ur gonna get.

  223. I always come back to your recipes. Tomorrow the realtor is coming over to take some pictures of the house, so I need to scrub scrub scrub 😛

  224. Why dillute the rubbing alcohol with water? It’s 65% because that (I thought it was 70%) is the perfect proportion to kill bacteria!
    32,5% alcohol would prevent them from reproducing (for a while?), but it shouldn’t properly disinfect.

    1. Yes! I wonder about this too! Putting the 70% alcohol straight onto the spray bottle would make a proper disinfectant, otherwise, mixing it with 50% water just creates some other product with another useful purpose, doesn’t it? Not a germ-killer disinfectant

    2. I think we might actually need to split hairs here. There is a difference between disinfection and sanitizing. I am assuming that with a disinfectant I am killing a majority of the surface germs. If I am going to sanitize it, that’s when the big guns, like my can of Lysol that stays under the cupboard most of the year, come in. There are no little people in our home and it is very clean, I don’t worry about using bleach and Lysol all over the place as it just doesn’t work for us. She often says you can alter this stuff for your home.😉

    3. Stans H this is a very valid point. I would recommend using vodka alcohol instead and perhaps do a lesser dilution of water.

    4. You are correct that to disinfect surfaces you should use Isopropyl Alcohol 70% undiluted. I am not sure why she is showing to dilute it. I can’t imagine it working very well at this ratio.

    5. I wondered about that too……

  225. I have to disagree, I think it’s entirely possible to replace all store bought or chemical packed cleaners with either eco products bought from the shop or “home made”, more traditional products. Infact, I’m on a mission to do so at home.

  226. I love all your tips. You seem like a really nice person 🙂

  227. Hi Madhu, I have not tested it but saw a video that you mixing baking soda/bicarbonate of soda with water spray with crayon marks leave it for a few minutes and it should come off.

  228. I wonder if oxygen bleach is safe for the teeth’s skin =(

  229. i simply love your videos!! greetings from Austria!

  230. Cheap & best cleansers ….I’m watching your cleaning videos ..all are great and easy to follow ..l love yours videos …luv you a lot..🌷

  231. if your diluting the alcohol with water why would it still be a disinfectant?

  232. I am going to be cleaning my truck windows. Thanks

  233. Hi Melissa where do you purchase your cleaning spray bottles from?

  234. hai melissa, it is very difficult to find rubbing alcohol where i stay, pls suggest some alternative for it. And instead of white vinegar can we use non fruit vinegar. pls pls answer:-)

    1. +shivranjani r You can also other alcohols, such as Vodka, it is strong enough that you can dilute it with water 50% of each and it works great! Also, for vinegar, you can use white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, etc. Their are others, like balsamic vinegar, but those cost more! White and apple cider are cheapest!

  235. Ping!

  236. Which products do you prefer storebought and which diy?

  237. Melissa can u tell me
    how to clean out and organise all of those drawers they always get messy in my house.

  238. so awesome.. I just found you. I have made my cleaning kit. I passed you on to both my mom and mother in-law.
    keep them coming.


  240. what can you wipe down a public toilet with safely before having to sit down.

    1. Use toilet paper (or maybe some wet-naps or a squirt of hand sanitizer). Your butt skin is pretty freaking resistant and tough. If toilet paper won’t due, I’d find a different place to pooh.

    2. +amie a I found travel size bottles of lysol in the travel section at walmart, the only drawback is that you should wait 5 minutes! I always keep one in my purse though! You could also use alcohol wipes, you can get boxes of those at most dollar stores, then just keep a few packs in purses, diaper bags, etc.

    3. +Plowbeast not her butt your butt

    4. +amie a Your butt

  241. Great tips! tx

  242. I thought she sounded Canadian! and then I saw the ou. haha

  243. mustard poweder + baking soda is super amzing for really old grease. THanks for amazing videos! They motivated me to do some cleaning )))

  244. Which of these cleaning product can b used to clean non-removable sofa fabric without damaging it??

  245. @cleanmyspace where do you buy your spray bottles?

  246. Cool video, learned something new. I like the fact that all your products aren’t hazardous to the skin, and those product has so much more uses. Like Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide makes a good toothpaste, hydrogen peroxide gets rid of a blood stains, you could also add 2 quartz of hydrogen peroxide to bath water to help detoxify skin.

    1. put epsom salt in bath water

    2. +georgemstew22 Actually, hydrogen peroxide is not good for your skin. It’s okay to use it to clean out cuts and scrapes, but it kills skin cells, even the perfectly good ones. So putting it in bath water isn’t a good idea.

  247. Hey Melissa, can u give me the recipe for tile/floor cleaner? My bathroom has tile floors

  248. My school got a directive from on high last week not to use chemical cleaners in the classroom, so I made some of these when making my students clean today. Thanks! The stain remover worked some wonders on this poor, battered carpet!

  249. Hi, Melissa! I’m Brazilian and I love your recipes. I use Google Translator for help.

  250. Many thanks

  251. Hi please help anyone what can I use to sanitize/disinfect my carpet besides a carpet cleaner or steamer, anything diy spray wise ? It’s a light carmel color and I’m afraid to use anything that will discolor it.

  252. THIS SO WORKS!!!!

  253. How come the cleaners you make only last 2 months ?

  254. I love your videos I always go back to it for motivation and tips, keep it up…

  255. Vinegar and dish soap can be used as an alternative ant spray. Kills on contact.

    1. Amazing i can kill ants in summer time in my yard

    2. Awesome tip…I HATE ants!!!! Thanks so much☺️

      Btw, what are the measurements you use?

    3. That will kill weeds too.

  256. Where did u buy essential oil in canada? is it expensive

  257. money saver save our planet.

  258. I love your all viedios thanks

  259. Congratulations!!!!!!

  260. I lov scrubbing bubbles

  261. how do you make a disinfectant lysol is getting so expensive

  262. I worry about rubbing alcohol taking the finish off of electronics. Not sure if it is hard on bathroom surfaces? Also, with the essential oils… which ones are safe and which ones are not. I have read some are sort of toxic. I would read up on this issue. I know I need too as well.

    1. Rubbing alcohol is fine on electronics. I use it to disinfect my smartphone at least once a week, and I even use it on my laptop (I dampen a tissue or paper towel with rubbing alcohol, and I run it all over the laptop – even on the keyboard). It’s against manufacturer suggestions, but I’ve never had any issues. I work in a hospital, so I do my best not to bring home any work germs with me. I’ve tried putting alcohol on almost every possible surface (sometimes by accident), and wood and leather are the only materials I’ve had issues with.

  263. Do you have a good rust remover recipe?

    1. I have removed surface rust from chrome by wetting the surface and then scrubbing with aluminum (tin) foil. It doesn’t take much scrubbing as this creates a chemical reaction and the rust comes off as a liquid paste. Chrome is harder then aluminum so it doesn’t scratch. Not sure about stainless steel you might want to look into the hardness compared to aluminum-I used this trick remove rust from a chrome bumper

  264. Melissa, you are Amazing:-))))

  265. Anyone have a dust cleaner recipe

  266. How to find out if my dish liquid is ph neutral ?

  267. Thank you thank you thank loved the dishsoap and vinegar worked on my bathroom tiles and also on my faucets it’s shiny like new

  268. Thank you for sharing! The soap scum remover/degreaser is absolutely amazing. It doesn’t have the chemically smell, rinses well, and cuts through grease and soap scum like no one’s business. 🙂

  269. What do u mean when u say 50%? Does that mean half a cup? Thanks

    1. It means just the same amount of both items.. So if you use a cup of water then you would use a cup of vinegar and so forth


  271. Hi Melissa I wanna know how to clean the toddlers water bottle

  272. I JUST used a fifty/fifty paste made of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda on a BURNT on MESS of a stove top (enamel) and it worked like a charm to get everything off! I used a green sided sponge/scrubber combo and wiped it rinsed with water once I was all done. NOTHING has worked this well for me.

  273. how do you clean rust

  274. Can you please share a diy solution for cleaning computer/tv screens? You mentioned distilled water in another video, but what exactly are the measurements? Thank you 🙂

    1. ty Jeff for your reply. Have a wonderful day!

    2. @amie a Ethyl and isopropyl alcohol are similar, both are safe for glass and plastic. You should never use ammonia on plastic.

    3. @Jeff Lebowski  I thought rubbing alcohol wasn’t good for glasses, tv’s, or Ipads? Does it not eat at the special coatings they put on such things?

    4. 50% distilled water and 50% rubbing alcohol works great for TV screens and monitors, use a lint-free microfiber cloth.

  275. Vodka is a great cleaner too. Spray it on your shirt to take away the mustiness and I buy a small bottle on the plane so when I use the bathroom I can disinfect before I use it real quick wipe down.

  276. hi, do I have to measure exactly right?

  277. Febreeze!   water, 2 tablespoons of Rubbing alcohol, tablespoon of your favorite liquid fabric softener!

  278. You are way too clean! lol

  279. The glass cleaner made of water and vinegar also kills odors in your home. Just spray a few times into the air and open the windows. At first it smells of vinegar, but that will evaporate and take the other odors along. 

  280. I like baking soda, white vinegar and tea tree oil for toilets-it foams up (think grade school volcano) and the tea tree disinfects 🙂

    1. I do that too!

  281. excellent presentation.  thanx for the tips.  

  282. I like vinegar + water + lemon essential oil + thyme essential oil in a spray bottle (has to be glass because the lemon EO eats plastic)… with a microfiber cloth works like a charm 🙂

  283. hey melissa how do i clean my hair brushes

    1. @lornamarlene duka I believe the box of Borox in the laundry isle has a suggestion on cleaning hair brushes. If not, go to the borax web site and see if they do.

  284. Great, I like it.

  285. thanks for the video

  286. Cool, just favorited for future reference!   : )

    1. Me to

  287. Great video – there is no reason to waste money on expensive cleaners!

  288. Can’t thank you enough for this video. Cleaning essentials simplified. Perfect!

  289. Thank goodness for this video

  290. Melissa can you tell peaple not to write the bad things they write?

  291. Great video, great site! Two questions for you Melissa: In my country I can only find alcohol and hydrogen peroxide in a pharmacy. I did my research but I found that I can’t find isopropyl alcohol but only ethyl alcohol 70% – will it do the work as well? And as for hydrogen peroxide, there is only one H202 that containes only 3% of Hydrogen Peroxide in a dark bottle! Do I need to find clean 100% of that or I can use it as well? Please respond, Im really eager to make some DIY cleaning products! 

    1. Yes, to both of your questions.

  292. These cleaners work great, I have not bought conventional since I watched this video. I  have learned to make my own fabric softener, ironing spray and laundry soap…not only am I saving money I know exactly what is in the cleaners I use.
    My hands feel soft too, they used to be very dry . Thanks for the recipes.

  293. Does rubbing alcohol have an alternative name? I’ve never heard of it. I live in Australia, do we call it white spirits? Any help appreciated!

    1. rubbing alcohol can be found in almost every supermarket in the health and beauty aisles and its cheap. also at kmart in the auto section bottom shelf in a smaller bottle but highly concentrated.

  294. Melissa, I’ve bought a couple bottles of rubbing alcohol at the dollar store to use in my cleaning. I made a bottle of 50/50 with water to use on my kitchen counters as a disinfectant. I hadn’t heard before abt the percentage as you’ve mentioned in this video, so I had a look and found mine is only 50%… does this mean Im not actually disinfecting anything?

  295. Cool tips thank you

  296. You’re an angel for sharing this! God bless and happy cleaning 🙂

  297. favourite? wtf? you sound English to me….

    1. She is from Canada, and why does it bother you? If you don’t like the way she may spell things, then don’t watch them. It is as simple as that. There are different ways of English.

  298. Can u whiten body parts such as knees and elbows using hydrogen peroxide too?

  299. Can you use the stain “pretreatment” on colors, and or darks?? My work uniforms are navy blue and I do not want to “whiten” them haha if not, what else would you substitute the peroxide with?

  300. She didn’t even use baking soda

    1. She said you can use baking soda in addition by sprinkling it over the stain or area first, before spraying the cleaner on to act as a gentle abrasive

  301. How much soap do u add it came out soapy

  302. Thank you so much for sharing.

  303. Awesome video!!! Easy to understand and retain because you designed it so well! I’m a new fan and subbie! Thnx for the info!!! 😉

  304. Can you add a natural preservative, like tea tree oil, to the cleaners so they will last longer?
    Also, I found this diy cleaning recipe and wondered if it would work as well (or better) than the all-purpose cleaner recipe you suggested:
    Fill a spray bottle with 1-2 tsp. of tea tree oil and the rest of the bottle with water.

    Tea Tree oil is a natural antibacterial disinfectant that was commonly used as a general antiseptic by the aborigine tribes for thousands of years, so it should be pretty good in an all-purpose cleanser.

    1. Michelle Mac i would recommend less dilution of the tea tree oil. I have a great recipe on my channel for all purpose cleaner. I use 10-20 drops tea tree amongst a few other natural goodies. I love it! It works wonders! I too use the tea tree for its antibacterial and antifungal properties.

  305. are you talking about white vinegar?

  306. where do you get your essential oils from????

    1. @daonlitrixie  read up on the safe use of essential oils before using or applying them. Find a reputable book perhaps?

  307. @goteamhale

  308. Great channel and video! I have a question. I would like to clean my LCD monitor screen and LCD TV screen, but since it’s plastic instead of glass i was concerned about it fading, or getting damaged. Would the 50% water & 50% Vinegar work? Also witch type of vinegar: Apple cider vinegar, or white vinegar? Thank you 🙂

  309. Hi Melissa, can you please share a DIY recipe on homemade veggie/fruit wash (if you haven’t already)? I find that some store bought ones have a citrus smell that lingers too long on my fresh fruits. It makes me think of gasoline when I bite on the fruits. Yuk.

  310. What store bought products do you like to use?

  311. what kind vinegar i can used could you let me know? also i just started watching your videos about cleaning the house all tips they all so helpfull thank you so much 

  312. Yum, tastes so good. 

  313. For the disinfectant cleaner (alcohol + water ) why do u mix it with water would an it be better not to add water to be more powerful and can I still add essential oils?

    1. @amie a You do not need to rinse the countertops afterward. When the alcohol evaporates it does not leave a toxic residue.

    2. @Katherine Manrriquez Do you have to rinse the kitchen counters after the use of the alcohol and water mix? or just let it dry and NO rinse? In other words will the alcohol be toxic on the counter top?

    3. Rubbing alcohol is only a true disinfectant at 60% to 90% with 70% being the most effective. When truly disinfecting you want to coat the area and let it evaporate. This is how we disinfected all our lab tables. I have a biology degree and worked in a microbiology teaching lab for a couple of years.

    4. Alcohol will evaporate within seconds. In order to disinfect an item such as counter tops it has to remain wet for a few minutes…the reason the water is added.

  314. Hi Melissa
    Great DIY cleaning products. I have chemical sensitivities and fragrance sensitivities and have been using water, vingear and baking soda for years. Now I am glad to hear about dish soap. I have just used a bit of it in hot water and it works great on my kitchen and bathroom floor. Thanks.
    Is Hydrogen Peroxide supposed to be in a dark bottle to keep it’s cleaning power from fading?

    1. Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down in sunlight (long term). I suggest that you use your product then put it under your cabinet with the other cleaning solutions and you should be alright.

  315. i loved this video, i am going to make all of these

  316. I am suggesting to must keep Hydrogen peroxide product in Dark (opaque) bottle. as per photo effect it will convert in to H2O and becomes non usable…

  317.  I like to use rubbing alcohol to clean windows and mirrors with. It somehow causes them to not steam up, this works great in the bathroom. 

  318. Do you have any DIY cleaning solutions for dust repellent, or do I just use Endust?

  319. @Clean My Space Do you have any recipes for homemade HE compatible liquid laundry detergent?

  320. Can you do one on how to clean coffee pots

    1. @Leigh Taylor Ellis Hot water and add baking soda. 30 minutes, and wash.

    2. Vinegar and water is one of the best cleaners for coffee pots. It cuts through the oils left by the coffee and rinses clean very well. 

  321. do you ever use bleach? I love Bleach it clean everything. i know the smell is strong but what’s your advice on using bleach?

    1. Bleach is a whitener and disinfectant … not a cleanser. I personally only use it to keep mold at bay and occasionally when laundering whites (bear in mind … bleach eats the elastic in your socks and whitie tighties so I only bleach my whites once a month.

  322. Hello, love your videos. I found you when googling ( is that a word even?) how to clean my Keurig. My Question: is the dish soap you use concentrate? I am kind of assuming it is but….
    Thank you for all your and chads’ hard work.

  323. This was wonderfully informative. I’ll be trying all of these very soon.

  324. Some of the absolutely BEST cleaners are [1]Lysol: Lysol is used in laboratories and biological labs for cleaning everything that is even contaminated with AIDS., [2] 409: this cleaner is an excellent cleaner/ sterilizer. I NEVERuse Clorox unless absolutely necessary.

  325. Can you please share what cleaning products you use when not using the home made ones? More of “do they really work”. Your ratings and recommendations.

  326. I just subcribed and love your chanel. I have a pretty big family and need to budget. Thanks for all of the good tips. NAYO

  327. For over a decade I have just used full- strength rubbing alcohol (70% or 90%) in a spray bottle to disinfect and clean most everything: glass, mirrors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, sinks and fixtures in bath & kitchen, commodes, etc. I use it with good paper towels. Both are cheap and you don’t have to bother to wash towels later! Easy and I love it! Just DO NOT USE it on laytex-based paint or caulk, because it will melt and remove it! But, it’s great to use as a remover of those things if you need to get paint off of something or carpets! Rubbing alcohol also removes many stains, kills soap residue and bubbles, and is great for removing oil or grease marks and scuff marks. Best to always test a spot first to ensure that it doesn’t damage the finish using a Q-Tip and a squirt of alcohol on the cotton tip. Oh! You CAN also use it to clean well-cured, oil-based paint (probably not flat paint though–haven’t tried that).

  328. I use my all purpose cleaner with half water, half white vinegar and the dish soap haha it works well, guess I’m just lazy and put the mild disinfectant with the cleaner =)

  329. Hi! Like your all videos!! Have one daughter’s favorite frock catch color of one cloth in laundry now its white base color turned light brownish,,,before it was white base with blue print…is there any way to get back to original white base

  330. You are my favorite channel! It always makes me want to clean!! Do you have a video on how to clean my kitchen? If not, can u make one? I really need help on that.

  331. Love this video

  332. Does it matter if the vinegar is distilled that is the only one I see at the store by me. Sorry if you have answered this I saw you said its good to use but I was just wondering. Love your videos I subscribed!

  333. I have heard that using baking soda with hydrogen peroxide makes a great cleanser for restroom cleaning purposes.

  334. Sub liquid castile soap for the dish soap and you got my vote. I’ve been making all my cleaning and personal grooming supplies for several years now and LOVE them and the fact that they’re all natural. Btw, liquid castile soap, like Dr Bronner’s magic soap, mixed with baking soda and a tiny bit of water to make a paste, is the best scrubbing cleaner ever! Mild enough for my glass top stove but tough enough to clean years of burnt gunk off my bbq grill with out any real effort.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing the DIY recipe that kicks butt on your cleaning projects in your world! I’ll try both yours and Melissa’s recipes and see which works best in my world.

  335. I tried this recipes . Love it ty

    1. Glad to hear!

  336. great recipes This chanell is my favorite!!!

    1. +Alex Andra I don’t think her alcohol-water mixture will kill bacteria. The 65% alcohol is dilluted to 32,5%, which is way too low to disinfect.
      (in the lab 70% alcohol is used. To kill all bacteria the surface should be covered with 70% alcohol (and kept wet) for 5 minutes… not that this is necessary at home, but just for comparison)

    2. thanks @Kimberly Hedges ! I got the wrong one :/

    3. +Alex Andra Rubbing alcohol is isopropyl alcohol, not methyl. And it is used to disinfect! 🙂

    4. +Clean My Space Hi. Does 50% rubbing alcool (65°) 50% water kill all bacteries? Is this the alcool we use to disinfect the skin or the one that contains methanol? Thanks.

    5. Aww, thanks so much, @Danya Caceres !

  337. awesome! many thanks

  338. <3 <3 <3

  339. How many of these are to never be used on wood surfaces? Or, are they all safe for wood? If not, what would you suggest to clean such surfaces?

  340. Tonight I used the tub and tile cleaner/degreaser on my faucet in my tub/shower, no matter what I used to clean it, the “soap scum” wouldn’t come off. I made my cleaner, left it on there for 5 to 10 minutes and then used a scrubbing sponge to clean it, not expecting anything to really happen, and WOW! It got all the stuff that I thought was “gouged” into the faucet off of there and made it shiny again. Amazing stuff, thank you so much for the cleaning tips and videos, you are awesome!

  341. DIY Homemade Cleaners

  342. Thank you so much for your tips on baking soda I did try it out on my hair it feels amazing and so refreshing

  343. LOVE your homemade products  =)…..have been using them for  awhile now..
    especially love the pretreat -I also use a little nail scrubing brush(medical kind soft)to do the collars of shirts & underarm of the shirt (deoderant build up) I have used the store bought ones BUT I must say this works way better & costs alot less!!!!!!! And  I also use the disinfectant (use this all the time) on doorknobs-telephone-toilet seats & the handle of the toilet… and the glass toppers of my furniture..I made each of my daughters in law  their own kit of bottles & used the labeler to put name of product & the recipe…….Just love your tips…..=)THANKS

    1. Nina Fontaine has

  344. Great..u covered everything..I am surely gonna try these..thank u

  345. What kind of store bought products do you use?

    1. there are none on the table you dipshit

    2. Rajha Heckman The ones you see on the table.

  346. Great video, but your supposed to keep peroxide in a dark bottle so light won’t get to it and mess up it’s effectiveness. <---- Hope I spelled that right.

    1. @sydney wellington what per carbonate?

    2. I put 1spoon of sodium percarbonate in 1 glass of water and I obtain fresh hydrogen peroxide every time I start cleaning. It’s a great cleaner and disinfectant.

    3. Jasmine Mitchell she probably keeps in a pantry or any other closed cabinet, it shouldn’t affect it at all.

  347. I moved into an apt in an area that has hard water. So there’s alot of hard water stains around the faucets and in the showers. I tried a 3 parts baking soda/ 1 part vinegar and it didnt work. I tried other products but nothing is working. I want to use the pumice stone but afraid of scratching the surface. Help me please!

  348. Great video, thanks for the recipes! Do you use Cloudy Ammonia for anything? Do you know much about it? Someone recommended I use it to clean my house with, but it seems really harsh! Thanks 🙂

  349. This is awesome! I have tried so many cleaning products. I am tired of wasting money!! The only concern is the stain remover. Won’t the peroxide bleach out your colors?

  350. What store bought products do you use

  351. what about about if the alcool is 60%  ?

  352. Love your tips 🙂

  353. I just made the disinfectant and all purpose cleaner I really love both of those. Thanks. I was using bleach around the house for years and always got sick. I still use bleach on my dishes and toilet tho. 2 cap fulls

  354. thank you thank you THANK YOU!! lol

  355. Hi Melissa.
    Thank you so much for these awesome cleaning videos. They motivate me to clean!!! I can’t seem to be able to get on your blog. Every time I try to click, it says “Error establishing a database connection” :/. 

  356. Thank you so much for sharing these.  I will be making these soon 🙂 New subbie here!!

  357. Good

  358. shes hot

  359. What store bought products do you have/recommend?

  360. shes hot

  361. i love your channel. I think it is very difficult to organize or clean sofa and coffee table area. Do you have any advices? Thank you very much!

  362. shes gorgeous 

  363. shes hot

  364. Where can you buy lavendar essential oil?

    1. Supermaket

  365. Thanx so much for this video, melissa!!

  366. Hi,I really like your channel,can I use one of these to clean the car? Thank you.

  367. what is a good cleaner for wood?! i have a brand new white bedroom maple wood set and i don’t know what to clean it with? 

    1. She made video on how to clean hardwood floors

  368. what are some of the store bought cleaners you use in conjunction with your homemade stuff?

  369. H2O2 (peroxide) should be stored in a darker bottle or it’s properties will start to break down.

  370. I used the Degreaser today on my stove top, since lets just say its …. beyond horrible. That is now a number one go to for cleaning up grease. I will definitely will be buying new bigger spray bottles, so I won’t have to make it up as much. Tomorrow, I’m going around the house and using the disinfectant on all the door knobs, mouses, and so forth in hopes of keeping my family healthier.

  371. Thanks for sharing Melissa, good stuff. I like to use natural cleaners as much as possible but sometimes you still need the ones with chemicals.., I use Method products a lot and find they work really good. There granite cleaner is great! I was using the water and vinegar mix for cleaning our granite however it was not a 50/50 mix. I did not now it was abrasive to stone. I will have to switch that to the all purpose cleaner mix instead. Thanks for sharing…

  372. I use Tea Tree oil mixed in water, It does everything you mentioned above but it also kills mold and mildew on contact. Tea Tree oil is an amazing product, it has many many uses. just google the uses for tea tree oil to find out… I use a 50% vinegar and 50% water solution for cleaning, ill have to add the tea tree oil to it as well.

  373. How many drops of oil do you recommend and in which mixtures? thanks again!

  374. thank you so much for sharing

  375. I find Your videos amazingly helpful, and have stocked up on supplies for homemade cleaning products and have tested most of them out and they Work 🙂 Only I have one question, In my country we have hydrogen peroxide in different percentage for different uses, what percentage of hydrogen peroxide should I use for making the home cleaning products? Help 🙂 Lots of Love from Macedonia 🙂

  376. walmart has a fantastic high pressure bottle for about $3.00

  377. Great video

  378. No, I do not recommend it. Vinegar can mar the surface of natural stone.

  379. Great one – we will add that to the list.

  380. Maybe the drug store? I know some people in Europe have trouble finding it…perhaps ask the pharmacist?

  381. I’m living in the Netherlands, where do you buy the rubbing alcohol.

    1. It should be in the section for ‘first aid’ in any store.

  382. Where do you get your empty spray bottles??

  383. Is vinegar safe to use on granite countertops? Thanks!

  384. What about bleach?

  385. Yes – that’s what I use in the kitchen!

  386. Yes – that’s right!

  387. Yes – that’s the right kind 🙂

  388. Hey it really good to make all these at home as it’s so economical but can you suggest that which dish washer is best to buy because there are so many brands are available in market so which is best to make all these home made cleaner

    1. DAWN is the best by consumer report.

  389. Hi one more question…is distilled white vinegar ok to use? Thanks. 🙂

  390. Hi. I have discovered your channel a few days ago and love it!!! I wanted to make sure I understand the parts thing…for example for the degreaser/scum remover..I could do like 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of dishsoap? Thanks so much…your cleaning videos are fun and so helpful!!! Thank you

  391. U would look soooo pretty with short (chin length) hair

  392. Try some rubbing alcohol on a cloth. Test in a hidden area first to ensure no paint comes off.

  393. Paint

  394. my 3 year old colored my bedroom door with a black sharpei marker any ideas on how to take it off?

  395. People use it for drugs ! I know here in winnipeg i seen it behind counters

  396. You can use a tiny squirt of dish soap and water for floors.

  397. That’s SO strange! I wonder if it is regional, because at our Shoppers you can get it on the shelves. Maybe some people use it for the wrong reasons?

  398. Spoken like a true scientist!

  399. I wouldn’t know how to advise you on that, maybe speak to someone who knows about car paint? I wouldn’t want to provide the wrong info…

  400. Hi there, no I don’t…except for the degreaser…they are all mild enough otherwise.

  401. Hi Melissa. Do you wash with water after using your different recipes? For example after using your all around spray with dish soap?

  402. Hi Melissa! Is it okay to use the mildew remover as a hard water remover for the paint on my car? The sprinkler system left calcium deposits on the doors 🙁

  403. Hi Meli

  404. BTW I don’t buy disinfectants because they typicaly don’t have ingredents listed, and I can never be sure what I’m shelling out money for will acctually work unless I set up some cultures. I would rather use the cheaper bleach that passes the quality control in the lab 🙂

  405. I use a 1:10 bleach to water solution for an antibacterial because it’s what we use in the medical lab. If it’s good enough for the lab, it’s good enough for my kitchen and bathroom 😉

  406. I bought rubbings alcohol to make disinfectant from shoppers and they keep it behind the pharmacy counter. When I asked to purchase it they kept asking questions on what I was using it for. Has his happened to you before because I found it strange that I was being pressed about buying it.

  407. Multi-Purpose Peel Citrus Fruits fill any empty glass containers you have on hand Lightly cover the peels with salt,let them sit for 20-30 min Fill the container vinegar Put a TIGHT FITTING lid on,let the solution sit for 2-3 weeks. (The longer it sits the better- label and put in fridge)Strain the solution and fill a squirt bottle half way and fill rest of way with Water & Ten drops of Dishwashing liquid (If you are using essential oils you will add them at this time)

  408. Disinfecting Wipes:
    Step One: Reuse an empty wipes container- fold cloths and stack on top of one another (If you don’t have wipes containers you can use any containers that you have)
    Step Two: Mix together- 1 cup water 2 Tbsp. Borax, 2 Tbsp. vinegar, 1/2 Tbsp. Natural Dish Soap and 8-10 drops lemon essential oil (optional)
    (Can add some of your Multipurpose Cleaner to make your cleaning solution stronger)
    Step Three: pour into Wipes container and Label

  409. Love it !!

  410. Taking notes for t cleaners and using all of them,tnx! 😉 Any recipes for floor cleaner?Keep up the good work, you’re great.

  411. Thankyou!

  412. Thank you!

  413. Love it all except the ding sound. Not good.

  414. If you add tea tree oil to any of these recipes it should extend the shelf life! Tea tree oil is a natural preservative- its antifungal, antibacterial and even antiviral. Just add 5 drops per cup of cleaning products and you’re set!

    I use 50% vinegar 50% water and tea tree oil for EVERYTHING! It really does work anywhere and it’s a disinfectant because of the tea tree oil 🙂

  415. Wow

  416. Shouldn’t a glass cleaner also have some Alcohol mixed into it. The alcohol should help in evaporating the mixed liquid faster than water & help in reducing streaks.

  417. Vinegar w/ dish detergent DOES work !! Thank u !!

  418. With hand sanitizer you can remove old paint from door knobs, permanent marker off white boards, and other stubborn stains. But careful: it does remove paint from walls, too…

  419. My favourite secret cleaner is using hand sanitizer. You ca

  420. Great video. How about Ammonia?

  421. Sounds like a good one!

  422. You are welcome!

  423. You can scale the recipe to as much or as little as you need. For example, one cup water to a half cup vinegar would be two parts water to one part vinegar.

  424. hey Melissa, i had a question 🙂 what do you mean by 2 parts of and 1 part of ??

  425. Awesome ass video YOOOO!!!!!

  426. Good videos love them thank for the tips

  427. This is great

  428. Cool!

  429. I use 50 percent vinger, 50 percent water, about a cup and a half of baking soda and limon juice for an all purpose cleaner:)

  430. I use hydrogen peroxide to clean the floors

  431. I will certainly try it out from today…will let you know the results for sure…thank u tons

  432. I think you’d be OK with the % you have.

  433. Hmm, I have never heard of yellowing due to water before. I would guess it’s because there is a certain mineral present in the water. I wonder if you can spray it with vinegar after showering, perhaps that would help?

  434. Heyy…your tips are very useful and I found your videos just now and boy I’m glad I did. Since I live in India I need these tips 1000 times more than anyone, I promise, especially when it comes to bathroom cleaning. So typically the water here leaves some yellow marks on my shower curtain, what can I do apart from taking the curtain down every month and using a brush to scrub off the yellow stuff…please help…appreciate the work you are doing 🙂

  435. I have access to 99.7% rubbing alcohol. Does the 50/50 split still apply, or should I further dilute it with more water? Great video, by the way.

  436. Great video

  437. thumbsup

  438. What cleaners besides your homemade variety do you use?

  439. You say you use both store bought and homemade, what types of products do you prefer to use store bought. I’m not asking for specific product names just what you use them for.

    Thanks, I’m loving these videos by the way.

  440. Using less water doesn’t increase the USP – it is still only 50%.

  441. Does diluted hydrogen peroxide work as a disinfectant?

  442. Melissa the DIY soap scum remover irritates eyes so much. Do you have modified recipe? Please help.

  443. I’m really excited to try these! Now that I finally own my own apartment I spent the day yesterday cleaning the whole house with your tips, but the cleaners from the store made the eczema on my hands flare up bad! I’m switching to these cleaners next time to help my sensitive skin!

  444. UMm can the stain remover remove stains on clothes ?

  445. The alcohol I currently have is only 50%. So can I use less water in the mix so it will have stronger disinfecting properties?If so what ratio would you recommend. Thank you. I am making my cleaning kit as I type this.

  446. Hi Melissa! I love your channel. It’s totally in my top 3… I don’t even take to YouTube all that much. But you’re such a resource! Thank you!!… To follow up, you said in this video that you use 50% homemade cleaning products and 50 store-bought products in your cleaning kit. What are your must-have store bought products? And why?? I live in Cali and probably have different cleaning needs than someone in Canada, but still, I’m sure there’s a lot of overlap.

  447. thank you

  448. in your cleaning recipes you always said 50% or one part it that means 1 cup of the ingredient? thanks for your cleaning tips

  449. Haiiii! I just discovered you exist, and you’ve revived my love of organization and cleanliness. Butttt Question: I haven’t taken care of my bathroom in a LONG time. It now has blackish orange mold. How can I get rid of that. it’s in the grout and..rubbery..caulking ( i think it’s called) thing. What to do? HEEELP! pls like this so melissa can see it! It’s Melissa, right?

  450. I never leave comments on anyone’s videos (EVER) but this one helped me so much that I had to thank u. I used the vinegar and dish washing liquid with the help of the baking soda on the tub and tiles. When I finished it looked like a completely different bathroom. Thank u so much!

  451. One part 95% alcohol, two parts vinegar makes a great vinyl record cleaner.

  452. My Isopropyl Alcohol is 99% usp. Should I be dilluting it more than 50/50?

  453. Hi Melissa, i have two questions.1, what is rubbing alcohol? I live in Turkey, not sure we have it. and 2, what do you think about using borax while cleaning house? is it safe to use in home made products? 🙂

  454. You make my member go Ding! Ding! Ding!!! 😉 thanks for the tips ill be using them.

  455. Hey Melissa, were do you get your spray bottles?

  456. liked the info hated the music

  457. She needs to wash the cover in the washing machine. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the water…it will help disinfect and deodorize!

  458. vinegar and water in a spray bottle. It is an odor neutralizer, as well as disinfectant.

  459. Can you do a video on chores that must be done in a day and week and month if you can. Thanks fir the upload, always informative, and you look different in the last couple of vids in a positive way. Keep up the good work, hope it pays off

  460. like it

  461. a friend of mine caught her boyfriend smoking crack in her house and now her bb bassinet smells like it, any ideas on how to get the smell out before the bb is born, she is due in bout a month

  462. Can you make a disinfectant and cleaner in one- using white vinegar, tea tree oil, water and dish washing liquid?

  463. Consider using the glass cleaner she showed you in the video. Vingar is natural..

  464. You can use 30% of Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and 70% water as a hand sanitiser.

  465. I loooooooove you’re videos sorry I’m taking up time but how do you clean rain boots

  466. Can you do a video on how to clean a cast iron pan everyday use and a deeper clean. I worry about bacteria.

  467. Can you do some videos for clean windows in natural way?? Thanks!

    This videos is fantastic *-*

  468. after someone was talking every time I played this, I then did play it but found the background noises awful and could not listen to it.

  469. I started watching your channel a couple of weeks ago and using your homemade cleaners and my family already thought I’m going nuts, because our home has never been so clean bevor 😉
    I LOVE TO CLEAN NOW and your way to tidy a room really helped me getting a better routine 🙂 THANKS FOR THAT

  470. Thank You!

  471. Yes, I meant for removing stains. Thanks Melissa!

  472. Great video 🙂

  473. Isn’t rubbing (Isopropyl) alcohol a form of posion, would it be safe to use it too disinefct kitchen surfaces and dishes?

  474. Can you use the disinfectant on a granite countertop?

  475. Which one of these products is good to use on a fabric couch?

  476. Let me add….that is other than making it into a cooking wine or maybe staining clothes purposely.

  477. I was wondering if there by chance is any use that you can think of for old red wine to clean/degrease anything around the house. I love DIY and I hate throwing things away when there might be a cleaver use for old things.

  478. Love this video!

  479. Thanks! I’ll have to do some experiments!

  480. soap scrum solution – i think this will not be possible to in a sprayer…. it it thick and might clog the spray line…. need to dilute more with vinegar

  481. Hi Melissa,
    As I’m a terrible one for getting hair dye all over my bathroom, if I added hydrogen peroxide to the normal degreaser, would this work as a whitener too?
    Or would this result in some kind of chemical reaction?

  482. Bien me gusta y ahorro dinero bien

  483. These cleaners need to be rinsed after use or I can just wipe them with a piece of fabric and let them dry?

  484. Hi Melissa
    My friend and I’ve been doing a lot of sewing, and I put a wax chalk mark on the new dress I’m making. She said, good luck in getting it out! Well I used your STAIN REMOVER, and wow it all came out. I put it into the laundry on gentle just to get the soap out. Called my friend back to tell her the great news! Of course she wanted the recipe! I’ve been cooking pinto beans for a crowed 10 lbs. now my crock pot is well stained! How do I get the stains out?

  485. Please do a tutorial on how to make homemade Laundry Detergent! Where I live they are ridiculuisly expensive!

  486. Hi Melissa, I love watching your videos all the way here in the Netherlands!
    Question: What percentage is the hydrogen peroxide you use? I’ve found one 1ltr bottle here that’s 3%. But after opening it’s only usable for one month. Is this correct?
    Keep up the good work and keep making those awesome videos. Love to hear from you.

  487. ooh oh! you should make a video on microwave cleaning!

  488. I always use vinegar to desinfect my countertops but the smell its the only thing I dont like, can I use citrus oil? like, rubbing the skin of a lemon?

  489. This video is so awesome that I’ve sent it all around my family. The physicist in me has a complaint though: for the hydrogen peroxide and washing up liquid, and the washing up liquid and water you gave quantities in different measurements. For the rest of the video you used percentages. If you would like to know the percentages:
    Stain remover: 66.6% hydrogen peroxide, 33.3% washing up liquid.
    All purpose cleaner: 6.4% washing up liquid; 93.6% water. (Using 1 tsp = 15ml and bottle = 470ml) 😀

  490. If I don’t have essential oil what can I use??

  491. Thanks Melissa!!

  492. Hi Melissa, I have a question, I bought Dr. Bronner’s soap and I read somewhere I can’t mix it with vinegar. Is this true, or is there another brand that’s as natural as Dr. Bronner’s? I’m avoiding all toxic products. Thanks a bunch!

  493. Quick way to clean the microwave… fill a coffee mug with water and add a 1/2 of lemon.. put it in the micro, set on high for 5 mins… when done wipe the inside of the micro clean. thanks for the awesome vid!

  494. I used left over lemon juice and baking soda to clean my stove top.Worked really well and itwas cool to hear the fizz!

  495. great video! I’m 5 months prego with my 3rd child. With 5 people in the house I need to save a few bucks were I can! Also friendly to the environment!

  496. Suggestion: “Drain volcano”. Great if it is not draining very well or a little smelly for some reason. Sprinkle baking soda into the drain, add a splash of vinegar and let it fizz away. Works wonderfully. 🙂 Despite the name there’s no real science fair volcano action (unless you put a lot of each in, I guess!)

  497. Any info for making homemade dishwasher detergent

  498. I’m trying to eliminate plastic from my life as much as possible. Part of it is making my own cleaners. I’m wondering if you know of a good nonplastic spray bottle or if you know what kind has a long lasting, non leaching plastic.

  499. Hi Melissa!

    You said you’re 50/50 homemade and commercial cleaners. What commercial cleaners do you use? What’s in your kit?

  500. Also if you guys have pets please do your research on essential oils. Tea tree oil is fantastic (I use it on my skin) but can be toxic!

  501. That loud “ping” sound effect freaked the crap out of my cats lol!

  502. Hey Melissa, from where I can buy original PH neutral instead of buying branded cleaner?

  503. Great information Melissa.

  504. Put Orange peel in a jar fill with Vinegar let sit for a few weeks
    Also wondering if I make my own laundry detergent can I use Hydrogen Peroxide in the combination as a stain fighter lifter?

  505. OMG love it, you are wonderful.

  506. 1/4 teaspoon liquid dish detergent and 1/2 teaspoon baking
    soda dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water and poured into the 2
    detergent cups in the dishwasher. I used this one day when I ran out of Cascade and have been using it ever since. Works like a charm,

  507. Make a video showing your cleaning kit

  508. Hello from down under!…you are awesome thank you for recipes….loving it

  509. Or if you like, you can replace the alcohol with essential tee tree oil. Its a natural anti septic and kills most bacterias or mold 🙂

  510. What are your essential/ favorite cleaning products and for what? Both homemade and store bought.

  511. I bet your house is super clean 🙂

  512. Great stuff. My wife and I greatly appreciate your efforts!

  513. I think the key to not having water spots is to dry it. ie: glass shower doors, squeegee it after use and dry off the frame to prevent water spots in the first place. When I clean any shiny surface ie: toilets, tile, glass I clean, dry then buff again to make sure there aren’t any streak marks. Distilled water would get quite expensive and the point of homemade cleansers is to save money.

  514. They all use an automatic air freshener to keep their stores smelling nice… look in the corners; usually near the floor hidden

  515. SUBSCRIBE =)

  516. Thank you for the info

  517. you are awesome!

  518. Great!

  519. YES! My tiles are driving me BANANAS! =P

  520. Where have you been all my (house cleaning) life? this is brilliant, Subscribed!

  521. Would you recommend using distilled water to avoid leaving all those deposits and things that normal tap water can leave behind?

  522. Melissa…have you tried to make your own daily shower spray. Here is my recipe (although I may now have to add some lavender oil to it for the anti mildew property)
    You will need the following:
    a spray bottle
    1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
    1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
    6 drops of liquid dish soap

  525. Hi melissa! I love all your videos and wish there was a “love” button and not “like”. Thanks for the great recipes. You may think I have gone crazy but I have browsed around like nuts trying to find the kind of spray bottles you show on this video!! I love the bright colors and the different shapes. I live in the US. Any pointers/advice from you will greatly help. They look expensive and I hope they are not!! Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

  526. Very nice!

  527. I love this video.

  528. OK thanks so much..I will try that..

  529. Hydrogen peroxide! My husband is always getting injuries and getting blood all over his clothes. If you wet the blood with water, then pour on hydrogen peroxide, it will blot off very easily!

  530. This girl is famous, I see her on tv all the time 🙂

  531. @cleanmyspace When ive used up my candles I like to put a drop of washing up liquid inside the glass holder, then pour boiling water right up to the top, leave to cool totally (next day). When I go back I find any remaining wax has melted and floated to the top, then hardened as a little layer at the top, which I can easily pop out, and VOILA . . nice clean glass to reuse! X

  532. I used some resolve in a small steam cleaner to get blood out of a headliner of a wrecked automobile. Is there any of this homeade stuff that will take dryed blood out? Thanks

  533. Love it! Going to try these!!! Can you please do a video or tell me how to get rid of cooked on messes on stove tops, I have electric stove tops not the flat ones but the coil ones!! But the stove tops gets so yucky and I don’t want to scrub scrub it might ruin the enamel! Please help!

  534. CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know when you walk into a store….Hollister, Pier one, etc……How do those stores maintain that smell all the time year round? I know that they don’t cook in these stores or have the dead calf smell coming from the bathroom leaking out into the rest of the rooms like at home ( fresh poop smells, we all do it )ha ha , but anyways, How do they do it or is there a way we can learn to “maintain a smell” than just air fresheners like Glade or candles? Thanks

  535. do a bathroom cleaning video please x_x
