DIY: All Natural Household Cleaner

When it comes to household all-purpose cleaners, you want something you can use often and for anything – why not make something you use that regularly as eco-friendly as possible? You can make your own all-purpose cleaner using three basic, inexpensive, non-toxic ingredients. They are: water, hydrogen peroxide, and lemon juice. You can use this cleaner for everything from streak-free mirrors to wiping out the cat litter box. The recipe:

2 cups Water
1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
¼ cup Lemon Juice

Mix and adjust to suit your needs.

Hydrogen peroxide is the key to this cleaner. It’s inexpensive, non-toxic, and readily available. It’s a nearly odorless liquid that is commonly used on open wounds and therefore safe to use around pets and children. Hydrogen peroxide has stronger cleaning capabilities than vinegar and works much like bleach, just without any harmful health or environmental effects. You can also add about half a cup of this mix into laundry water to whiten clothes. The acidic lemon juice helps break down grime and add a fresh citrus scent. Water helps dilute the mixture.

Keep it pre-mixed in a reused windex spray bottle for easy access!
