Make Your Own All-Purpose Cleaner

If you read the label on most traditional cleaning products, you’ll find a list of chemicals that you probably can’t pronounce. Instead, use this recipe for an eco- and family-friendly cleaner.


  1. 1 tablespoon borax
  2. 1 tablespoon washing soda
  3. 1 teaspoon dishwashing soap
  4. 1 cup vinegar
  5. 4 cups hot water
  6. 10 drops of essential oil (optional, for scent)


Mix ingredients and pour into a spray bottle. This cleaner can be used on almost any surface; test in an inconspicuous place first to make sure it’s safe for your material.
