Homemade Cleaning Products: 5 Non Toxic Recipes For Your Home

Have you ever wondered why it’s necessary to have so many cleaning products for all areas of your home?

Well if you’re looking for a more “minimalist” approach to cleaning your home, this post is for you!
We’ve put together 5 DIY home cleaning recipes to help clean your home from top to bottom.
From a multipurpose spray that can clean almost any surface to an all-purpose air freshener to make your home feel (and smell) fresh and clean at all times.

Ready to get started? OK let’s go!

Bathroom Fixtures:

Did you know you can use a little Isocol straight from the bottle on your bathroom fixtures to keep them shiny?
Simply pick up a bottle of Isocol from your local supermarket or Pharmacy (you’ll find us in the First Aid section) and add to a clean absorbent cloth. Rub the cloth over your fixtures to make them clean and shiny.
No need to rinse – the alcohol will just evaporate leaving a fresh and light fragrance behind.
It does a great job of making chrome fixtures sparkle and it will kill any germs in its path!
We just love this Enjo bathroom glove to make the job even easier.

Homemade Floor + All Purpose Cleaner

Our homemade floor and all-purpose cleaner is perfect for spraying down surfaces after cooking or eating, cleaning granite benchtops and even works extremely well as a floor cleaner!
The beauty of our recipe? Cleaning is faster and easier than ever.

The isopropyl alcohol in Isocol helps the cleaner to evaporate quickly which ensures there is no sticky residue lingering behind.

Have people popping over? No worries! You can quickly add this mixture directly to your mop bucket and mop the house knowing that your floors will be dry in a jiffy. Plus Isocol kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria on your floors so this is a great option for bathrooms or homes with pets.
Don’t believe us? You’ll just have to give it a try.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup Isocol 345ml (70% isopropyl alcohol)
  • 3/4 cup vinegar
  • Few drops of essential oil (optional)

Method:

Add all liquids to a clean spray bottle to combine.
Add a few drops of essential oil if desired.
When you need to use it, simply spray your surface area or floor and wipe down with a clean microfibre cloth or mop. Easy done.

A “Greener” Non-Toxic Air Freshener:

Many commercial air fresheners can contain nasty chemicals that shouldn’t be inhaled. So why not make a DIY Natural and Non-Toxic Air Freshener using your favourite scents? The Isopropyl Alcohol contained in Isocol helps the spray to evaporate so quickly but carries and leaves behind a fragrant and natural scent (without using any nasty ingredients)!

We love using the natural scents that are contained within citrus peels. Lemon, grapefruit, lime, orange or mandarin – they all smell incredible. For an extra kick you can include a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Coconut and lime is an incredible combination!

What You’ll Need:

  •  1 1/2 cups water
  •  1 1/2 cups Isocol 345ml (70% isopropyl alcohol)
  • Peel from 1 orange, lemon, grapefruit or lime
  • Few drops of essential oil (optional)

Method:

Add all liquids to a clean spray bottle to combine.
Add the citrus peel of your choice and a few drops of essential oil if desired.
Use as a room spray as often as desired.
You can also use this recipe to kill pet odours, kids shoes, school bags, bin odours and more!
Plus as an added bonus, it has anticeptic properties as Isocol kills 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria.

How to Adhere Your Printable Labels:

There are a few ways you can adhere your FREE Printable Cleaning Product Labels to your spray bottles.

1) Use a thin glue to attach the labels and cover with clear contact paper

a. Either an adhesive spray glue or even a thin layer from a glue stick will work nicely.
b. Once you have attached your label, we recommend covering with clear contact paper to protect the label from any damage. If you don’t have any clear contact paper on hand, you can use cello tape as well. Just be sure to overlap the pieces of tape and ensure there are no gaps to protect the paper from getting wet.

2) Use adhesive printer paper

a. We would still recommend covering your adhesive labels with clear contact paper or cello tape in order to protect them.
