I’m Leanna. This blog was born out of the chaos of mommin’ hard all day everyday while tackling little projects along the way! I hope you can find some easy DIY inspiration, family friendly recipes, and some other fun things to make your day while you are here.
I have been trying to find ways to limit the use of chemicals in our home the past year and one of the easiest so far has been to make my own handmade house cleaners. These easy to follow cleaning recipes take just a few ingredients and are much cheaper then the store bought brands. I also love that I know exactly what goes into them!
There are so many reasons to make your own handmade house cleaners. It’s safer, it lessens your chemical exposure, it’s better for the environment, and it’s SO easy and actually fun to do. AND its much much cheaper!! Why wouldn’t you make your own cleaning products?!
I also add essential oils to all my house cleaners to make them smell amazing. My favorite oils to add are lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint, tea tree and orange. You can buy oils almost anywhere now but I have linked a few of my favorite ones from amazon here.
This is a simple non toxic All Purpose cleaner. It is perfect for cleaning showers, toilets, bathroom counters and soap scum safely and effectively!
Spray the solution onto the granite and wipe clean with a dry cloth. This single product safely disinfects the counters and cleans them, too.
Note: This solution does NOT contain Vinegar or Dish Soap! The acid from vinegar can wear away your granite counters. Also, the soap can leave behind a dull and foggy surface.
If you’re looking for spray bottles, I recommend these glass spray bottles, which are the perfect size, pretty to look at and you don’t have to worry about BPA in the plastic. I also bought this handy dandy label maker to label all my cleaning products as well as for other things around the house.
