How to Make Your Own All-Purpose Cleaner

How-To: Make Your Own All-Purpose Cleaner

It's not always easy being green — or clean. Combining the two can be downright impossible, but making your own products can cut chemicals, crud, and cost. I simplify things even more by using one all-purpose cleanser nearly everywhere in my pad.

To make the cleaner, just combine equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle and shake to mix. Before storing, label and date your homemade mixture. It should be good indefinitely, but it doesn't hurt to mix up a fresh batch every couple of months.

Spring cleaning on the mind? Other DIY options include a heavy duty surface cleanser, a window solution, and a tub and tile scrubber.

I also use tea tree oil mixed with water for a cleaner. It's not too expensive to buy at health food stores or online, and several drops mixed with a lot of water go a long way! Except it does have a rather strong (but not necessarily bad) smell.
