When I became pregnant with my first child, I researched natural cleaning recipes for your home.  I was worried about the toxins that go into store-bought cleaners. I used my chemistry background to tweek the natural cleaning recipes until I had a perfect mix.

I started by switching my laundry soap. I still remember the first week I ran out of my natural cleaning laundry soap and had to use the store bought detergent. My husband came home from work and threw all his (clean) clothes back into the hamper. He brought home the ingredients I needed for my natural cleaning recipe and asked me to make a new batch. He had spent the entire workday with a migraine headache because of the store bought detergents fragrance.

After that I created quite a few natural cleaning recipes for your home. Some of the recipes I have posted on Little People Wealth are shown below.

One of my favorite parts of my natural cleaning recipes for your home is the fact that I can scent them with whatever I feel like using that day. I used different essential and fragrance oils for each recipe. My babies clothes were washed in a “orange dreamsicle” soap (orange essential oil and vanilla fragrance oil). My own clothes were usually washed in a Rose Peppermint. I had a few more masculine oils that I would use on my husbands clothes. It is not a strong scent like the store-bought, but it is pleasant.

I used to sell my natural cleaning recipes for your home on Hyenacart. I have since shut my store down, but I am in the middle of writing an E-Book on the natural cleaning recipes and a few natural cleaning tips. Follow me on RSS/Email, facebook, and/or twitterand you will be the first to know when it is released!

Natural Cleaning Tips

  • Always have vinegar and baking soda on hand, both are common ingredients for natural cleaning recipes for your home
  • A newspaper makes a great “towel” to clean glass
  • Dollar General carries plastic spray bottles that are great to use when you make your own natural cleaners
  • Camden-Grey is a great place to find essential oils used in natural cleaning recipes for your home
  • Olive oil makes a great polish
  • Pour boiling water (after you hardboil an egg or cook pasta for example) down the drain to help keep it clear
  • Use the juice of a lemon to freshen drains

Using natural cleaning recipes for your home can sometimes help cleaning on a budget , but the main benefit to using natural cleaning recipes is getting the toxins that are in store bought cleaners out of your home. You can see in my living green and at this home cleaning site the difference between a disinfectant made with a natural cleaning recipe for your home and a store-bought disinfectant. Both work, but one does not make you sick!
