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!

Learn basic English vocabulary for cleaning your house


In today’s English lesson, I will teach you how to clean in English! You will learn vocabulary and special verbs we use to talk about cleaning. You’ll learn verbs like “wipe”, “sweep”, “wash”, “scrub”, “mop”, and more. This lesson is for beginners, so don’t be scared. Take the quiz on engVid.com and keep your house clean.

TRANSCRIPT

Hi, guys. Welcome to EngVid. I just want to say to you that I have the power. Anybody who watched He-Man will remember this. And if not, oh, well. I’ve got a lesson for you today, and it’s on cleaning. This, my friend, is a vacuum cleaner. Look at it. Elegant lines. [Spits] A little dirty, but we’ll clean that up in a second or two when we start the video. This is on a basic lesson for cleaning. There’s another video you should check out. It gives more phrases you can use with cleaning. Right? You will like that one, too. But anyway, let’s get moving, right?

There we are, over here. Mr. E. Oh, no. He has spilled something. “Spill” — what is “spilling”? A “spill” is when you have, you know, a liquid, and you drop it on the floor, and it goes everywhere. Sometimes, you can spill things like rice, sugar, or salt because they’re uncountable and they go everywhere like a liquid. “He has spilled his tea.” The cleaner isn’t happy. But I don’t think he’s using the right tool for this job. Do you? Do you know what this is called? Do you know what he should use? By the end of this lesson, you’re going to know that and a few handy phrases to show you are a native English speaker, yeah?

All right. So what’s happening in the picture? My friend is cleaning up the spill. But I think he’s using the wrong tool. Booyah! “Wipe.” The first thing we want to talk about is “wipe”. What is “to wipe”? Well, when you “wipe” something, you take a paper or a rag — you know cloth. Or — cloth, rag, paper. These are the things we use to wipe. It’s a soft movement where you just kind of do this motion or this to clean something. Okay?

Now, we wipe tables, and we wipe walls to clean them. Right? So when something’s not serious, you can wipe it. It will go away easily. Right? Unlike my last girlfriend. Anyway.

“Wash”, “wash”, what is “washing”? Well, you should wash your hands, right, to get them clean. But we also need to wash other things. One of the things we wash is after you eat your food, you have your knife and your fork, right, and a plate. You put them in water. All right? See our little water here? This is a sink. That’s where you put them, by the way. Did you know they’re called “sink”? This is called a “sink”. You put your dishes in the sink, and you wash them. Okay?

So we’ve got our sink. We also wash our clothes. You’re clean, right? I’m sure you don’t wear the same clothes all the time. You take them off. You put them in the machine. We call that a “washing machine”. Okay? So “wash” — you “wash” dishes; you “wash” your clothes. And that’s what we’ve got here. Another word for “clothes” by the way, boys and girls, “laundry”. A lot of times, we don’t say, “I’m washing my clothes.” In fact, we mostly say, “I’m doing my laundry”, but we’ll come back to that. Okay? So you’ve got “laundry” to wash.

Now, “scrubbing” — “scrub”. “Scrub” — I’m missing something here. Oops. Pardon me. You scrub, and it’s hard. Remember I said when you use a cloth, you use it for soft? “Scrubbing” is when you want to go really, really hard on something because it’s hard to clean. Now, what do we scrub? We scrub floors. Okay? You have dirt on the floor. You have to get down there and scrub it. You scrub your sink because remember, you’ve been washing things. You need to scrub to get the dirt out. It won’t come out with a wipe. Okay? There’s a lot of dirt there. Please, oh, please, tell me you scrub your toilet. Don’t wipe your toilet, okay? You know what you use it for, so you need to scrub that thing clean. Okay? Or don’t invite me to your house. Some of you have, but I noticed you only wipe your toilets. I’m not coming. Change that attitude — change your behavior, I’ll be there. Okay? And walls. Walls get dirty. People throw things; food goes on the wall. Especially if you have babies, it goes up on the wall. You need to scrub it because it goes into the paint. Okay?

Baking Soda is Awesome for Cleaning! 10 Cleaning Uses for Baking Soda (Clean My Space)

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?

What are your favourite baking soda tips? Let me know if you try any of these and what your results were.

Do you have any ideas for a top 10 list? Let me know!

Thanks for watching 😀

How to Clean Dirty Grout with Homemade Cleaner | Ask This Old House


Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva explains how to clean dirty tile grout using only household supplies.

#ThisOldHouse #AskTOH
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Time: 4-5 hours

Cost: $0 and up

Skill Level: Beginner

Tools:
Stiff scrub brush []
Sponge []
(OPTIONAL) Grout knife []

Shopping List:
Dish soap []
Baking soda []
White vinegar []
Grout sealer []

Steps for Cleaning Grout with Homemade Cleaner:
1. Fill a cup with warm water.
2. Add the baking soda to the cup to give the mixture grit.
3. Add a few drops of the dish soap to the cup. Mix everything together.
4. Pour the vinegar along the edges of the grout. Don’t do too much at once or the floor will be really wet and more difficult to work on.
5. Pour the mixture on top of the vinegar along the grout lines.
6. Scrub the grout lines with the stiff scrub brush.
7. After scrubbing, let the mixture sit for about five minutes. Then, scrub it again with the brush.
8. Wipe off the excess vinegar mixture with a sponge. Allow the floor to dry. It could take about 45 minutes.
9. (OPTIONAL) If that doesn’t work, try gently scraping the top layer of the grout with a grout knife. They’re meant for removing grout, so do this carefully.
10. Apply the grout sealer along all the grout lines.
11. Allow the sealer to dry for 3-4 hours. Then apply a second coat.
12. Repeat this sealing process every year, especially for light colored grout.

Resources:
Tom’s homemade solution for cleaning grout included concentrated dish soap, baking soda, and white vinegar. These can found at most grocery and department stores.

Rather than using a toothbrush, Tom recommends using a cleaning brush [] with stronger bristles. They sell specialty grout cleaning brushes at most home centers in the Tile aisle. The one Tom used in the video is manufactured by QEP ().

If the stains are really deep in the grout, Tom recommends using a grout removal tool and lightly scraping it against the grout to remove the layer of grout that’s been stained. Do this cautiously. The grout removal tool Tom used [] in the video is also manufactured by QEP ( ).

Once the grout is clean, Tom suggests that sealing the grout once per year will prevent it from staining again. Tom used a TileLab Grout Sealer [], which is manufactured by Custom Building Products () and can be found at most home centers.
