DIY CLEANING RECIPES

Making your own non-toxic DIY cleaning products is one of the ways of providing the optimal toxin-free environment for you and your family.  I love simplicity and only share really easy, amazingly effective, safe and ridiculously affordable recipes!  Come along to one of our cleaning workshops to learn so much more – not just how, but why this is critical to your health.  Here a few of my favourites…

 

MULTI PURPOSE CLEANER

 

Ingredients:

  • 500ml glass trigger spray bottle
  • 100ml white vinegar
  • 400 ml filtered water
  • 30 drops dōTERRA essential oil
  • 1 squirt of natural dishwashing detergent such as Kin Kin All Naturals (alternatively use OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate or 1 tsp borax)

DIY SOFT SCRUB

Great for your tiles in the bathroom and kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 1 glass jar 300-400ml
  • ¾ cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup liquid castile soap
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 5-10 drops dōTERRA Lemon essential oil

Method:

  1. In a glass jar, combine the baking soda and castile soap
  2. Add the water and stir
  3. Add the vinegar
  4. Add the essential oil
  5. The consistency should be a soft paste
  6. Store with lid secured to remain airtight

Tips:

  • Liquid castile soap is a vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores. Dr. Bronner’s is a popular one. Look for organic and unscented

 

CARPET CLEANER

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of baking soda
  • 10 drops your favourite dōTERRA essential oil

I recommend: Purify, Eucalyptus, Lavender or dōTERRA® Easy Air

Method:

  • Add essential oil to baking soda and stir until combined
  • Sprinkle mixture over carpet
  • Let rest for 1-2 hours
  • Vacuum clean

 

DIY STAIN REMOVER

Ingredients:

  • white wine vinegar
  • 10 drops of Lemon essential oil
  • Glass spray bottle

Method:

  • spray on the stain before you wash, then pop into the machine
  • spot stains – spray onto the stain and hang in the sun and let nature do the rest of the work

Shake the bottle well before use

 

ON GUARD CLEANING WIPES

Create your own On Guard all-purpose cleaning wipes! You will need

  • Quality paper towel roll
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon On Guard Cleaner Concentrate

Cut the paper towel roll to fit lengthwise in your chosen container and place it inside. (We used an old cleaning wipes container.) Mix all the wet ingredients together, then pour all over the paper towel into the container. Wait a few minutes and pull out the cardboard tube in the center once it is soaked through. Then grab a paper towel from the center and pull up so your wipes will feed from the middle.

Happy cleaning!
