5 Homemade Cleaners! DIY Cleaning Products! Easy Ways to Save Money & Stay Clean! (Clean My Space)

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).

How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies (Easy Household Cleaning Ideas) Clean My Space


Maker’s Cleaning Cloths:
Subscribe for a Cleaner Life!

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows us how to set up a fruit fly trap and get rid of fruit flies for good!

It is important to catch the problem fast because fruit flies breed quickly and multiply exponentially fast. While I don’t like killing things, in this video we do need to kill fruit flies to make sure they don’t come back. Thanks for watching!

Stephanie asked: How do I get rid of pesky fruit flies?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Pesky fruit flies
2) Container (like a glass)
3) Balsamic vinegar
4) 2 sheets of plastic wrap
5) Paring knife

Fill a container 1/8 of the way full with balsamic vinegar. Cover the container with taut plastic wrap. Take your paring knife and pierce 4 small holes on the top of the plastic wrap. Leave it out overnight. Take off the old plastic wrap the next day since they may have laid eggs on it. Replace it with a new sheet of plastic wrap and pierce 4 small holes again (Repeat for 2-3 days). If you notice a few are flying out, put a second layer of plastic wrap or make sure your holes aren’t too big. Make sure you put your fly catcher in an area you think it’ll be most effective.
