Ask Casa: Shelf-Life of Homemade Cleaning Products

Mrs. Meyer's at ShopStyle

Hi Casa!
I have a question about homemade cleaning products that I've been trying to find an answer to. I would love to mix up bottles of all-natural cleaning supplies but I'm not quite sure how long they last. Can I use them indefinitely? Do I have to make them fresh every time? Something in the middle?
Thanks,
KateDavis


To hear my response to KateDavis,

Hi KateDavis,
That's a good question! Shelf-life varies from product to product. Most solutions, like my all-purpose surface cleaner, will last indefinitely. If you use herbs in any of your cleaning products, they'll lose their potency within a few weeks. Essential oils, on the other hand, won't go bad. For acidic cleaners, if you use lemon juice, the product will only last a few days, and you should be sure to store it in the fridge. If you use vinegar, though, it'll last indefinitely. Be sure to keep all of your homemade cleaning solutions in a labeled spray bottle. Also, be sure to check out some of my recipes for more cleaning solutions.

If you'd like to see expiration dates for specific cleaning solutions, check out this website.

Hope that helps!
Happy cleaning,
Casa
