Hi everyone! Welcome to my channel! Thanks so much for stoping by. I just wanted to leave a side note that this couch is microfiber so I’m not so sure how effective this cleaning method will be on other types of materials.
More from Inside Edition:
Just how clean are your towels and sheets? The results of some tests submitted by Inside Edition may shock you. New York mom Kristi Muccini, who runs a busy household and regularly does laundry, allowed Inside Edition into her home to test the linens, towels, and slippers to gauge their levels of bacteria. Microbiologist Jesse Miller and his team at NSF laboratories in Ann Arbor, Mich., examined the samples from the Muccini household.

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.
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).

We love hearing your stories, seeing your messy/clean pics and answering your questions!
I think we mention baking soda in about 50% of our videos. The stuff is incredible. It’s cheap, available in every grocery and drug store and has so many uses. It’s fascinating stuff! It’s great for three key functions from a cleaning standpoint: abrasion, deodorizing and whitening.
I could probably do a video on 10 uses for baking soda every week for the next 20 years and never once repeat myself…now do you understand how amazing this stuff really is?!
I also love it because it is safe enough to eat, in fact, it is found in many baking recipes. Therefore, I’m convinced that it is a household cleaning kit staple.
So in no particular order, here you go:
10 – remove scuff marks and crayon marks from a painted wall.
9 – battle the worst body odour with baking soda.
8 – clean and unclog a smelly sink drain.
7 – clean your tile grout. Our in-depth video on grout cleaning
6 – add abrasion to any cleaning product (especially a homemade one) – this puts other products like VIM and Comet to shame. Here’s our video on making your own cleaning products
5 – deodorize your kitty litter box.
4 – clean your non-self cleaning oven. You don’t need anything caustic!
3 – remove hair product build-up from your hair (hair clarifying treatment). Mind=blown.
2 – deodorize your carpets
1 – add to laundry to create an amazing laundry booster!
Have I convinced you to purchase an industrial drum of the stuff yet?
