DIY Cleaners

Natural & Frugal: Raising 6 Kids

My family loves making and using all things DIY including cleaning and using essential oils to clean with.  We love passing on the recipes we discover and love to everyone so they can enjoy them as well. These DIY cleaners are natural  and can be customized to fit your own preference. Toxic free and DIY is what I am all about.

Scum and Grime-Fighting Multi-Purpose Spray Cleaner

  • 1 Spray bottle
  • 3 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 parts water
  • 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil

Because of the hydrogen peroxide in this mixture either store in dark cupboard when not using, or just mix in the brown hydrogen peroxide bottle and add the sprayer to that bottle. Great for cleaning all around the home, even mirrors. Keep handy for fast cleaning of any area in your home. Great on grease, as well as to clean surfaces and appliances too.

Multi-Purpose Lemon Eucalyptus Cleaner

  • 1 Spray bottle
  • Straight white vinegar
  • 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

Also great all around your home. Works great on windows mirrors and chrome, sliding tub doors, appliances, and more. (Optional add lemon essential oil as well).

Bathroom Deodorizing, Germ-Fighting Room Spray

  • 1 Spray bottle
  • Distilled water
  • 10 to 20 drops each eucalyptus essential oil and lemon essential oil

Great to mist in the air of any room but can also be used as a surface cleaner, sink, toilet, and tub cleaner. Great room deodorizer and sanitizer.

Multi-Purpose Natural Stone and Granite Cleaner

  • Straight 3% hydrogen peroxide or hydrogen peroxide and water
  • 5 to 20 drops of  eucalyptus essential oil

Great for all surfaces even chrome. Keep in original brown bottle that the hydrogen peroxide comes in with spray top or keep in dark when not in use. This is also a great room deodorizer and disinfecting spray and also a great cleaner for most surfaces, plus it is great for cleaning the bathroom as well.

Granite Stone Soft Scrub

Mix baking soda and water or hydrogen peroxide with a few drops eucalyptus essential oil mix into a paste. Use a washcloth to rub in or a soft toothbrush and use a damp washcloth to wash off the residue and then clean with a spray cleaner.

Spray Hand Sanitizer

Add 10 to 20 drops each of eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree oil in distilled water in a small misting spray bottle. This sanitizer is one of those that is so easy to make but so effective, you can add the amount of essential oils desired and it can even double as natural perfume, cleaner, sanitizing spray (for carts, high chairs, etc while out), and room deodorizer. Great for spraying on beds in motel rooms too.

I have been natural for a very long time and I started becoming totally DIY around 9 years ago, I was baffled to find that so many were charging for these DIY recipes so I decided I would share what I know free to anyone who wanted to learn. I am a mom of 6, married 19 years, and a 5 year cancer survivor living the amazing natural life.
