Today we have a new DIY: You can Make Your Own Streak Free Glass Cleaner with just a few low cost products, many of which you probably have around the house already.
If you follow the blog closely, you may have noticed we are including a few new all natural DIY recipes for your home! We hope this can help you save money in the long run, since cleaners can be expensive and in many instances, we don’t have many deals or coupons for them. This DIY does involve a small investment for supplies, if you don’t have them already on hand.
See this recipe below to get that spring cleaning done with an all natural cleaner.
If you haven’t explored essential oils, you can find out more here and purchase the two pictured above. For this recipe you will need pure Orange and Lemon essential oils.
Any time you are working with these pure essential oils, you need to be cautious of a few things. One, make sure your hands and skin are not coming into contact with the oils or the mixture, since they are absorbed through skin.
Secondly, the oils are so strong that you will need a glass bottle or storage container for your new mix. A plastic bottle can actually be eaten away over time by the oils! As you can see we aren’t even using a plastic funnel. You can find these great metal funnels here.
And of course a safety note — Be sure to keep away from children and pets, and it’s always a good idea to make your own cleaners in a well ventilated area. 🙂
This cleaner comes together pretty quick as long as you have all the ingredients ready to go. Be sure to give it a good shake before using, and use gloves if you are concerned with the ingredients getting on your skin (as with any cleaner).
Then, enjoy the non-chemical scent of this fresh citrus cleaner for your spring cleaning!
