Wondering how to make our own cleaners? Below we have shown several cleaning recipes that are eco-friendly, safe and cost-effective. Check them out.
Bucket with a lid (5-gallon)
Half cup of borax
1 cup of washing soda
1 bar of Fels-Naptha soap
4 cups of water
Use a cheese grater to grate the soap. Fill a saucepan with four cups of water and place over heat. Add the soap. Stir continually until all the soap is melted. Take a bucket and fill half of it with hot water. Then add the melted soap, borax and washing soda. Again, stir well. Next, fill the bucket with hot water until you reach the top. Stir well and close with the lid. Wait overnight for the mixture to thicken. On the next day, you will notice that the mixture has become gel-like. Pour it into a container of your choice.
Now when you use it, we recommend you fill half a dispenser with the gel-like soap and the rest with water.
This recipe produces 10 gallons of soap.
1-2 tablespoons of baking soda
2 parts of hydrogen peroxide
1 part of generic dish soap (Dawn is the best option here but any other soap will work just fine)
Take a small bowl and mix together all ingredients. Stir well to help the products dissolve. You are done. Now apply some of the mixture onto a stain and scrub with a small brush. Rinse well. Then throw the clothing into the washing machine and run a normal cycle.
If the stain is tough, just let the mixture rest for a an hour or so on the affected area. After that launder.
CAUTION! Just so you don’t damage the fabric of the clothing you want to treat with the stain remover, we recommend you first do a test on a small area of the garment. This will help you figure out whether the remover is harmful to the fabric. Just apply a little stain remover on an inconspicuous area of the clothing and wait for a while. If you notice no changes, this cleaner is safe to use. It is tested by MoveOut Clean SE London and it works 100%.
Empty spray bottle
2 cups of water (warm)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
¼ cup of rubbing alcohol
¼ cup of white vinegar
Use a funnel to pour the ingredients into the spray bottle. Start by adding the rubbing alcohol and vinegar. Then add the cornstarch and water. Gently shake the mixture. Your glass cleaner is ready to use. Make sure you shake the bottle before each use. Just spray windows and mirrors and then wipe down using a microfiber washcloth.
Soap Scum Remover
Empty spray bottle
2 tablespoons of dish soap
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1 cup of white vinegar
Pour vinegar into a cup and then add the cornstarch. Stir well. It will start thickening. Note that one tablespoon of the powder is more than enough; if you put more cornstarch, the mixture will become unbearably thick! Put the mixture into the microwave for a couple of minutes. Take out and stir.
Take a clean, empty spray bottle and add the dish soap. Add the gel-like mixture you just microwaved. Gently shake. It’s done.
When you spray a surface with the soap scum remover, be sure to let it rest for 10 minutes or so. After that use a damp cloth to remove the product.
Clean, empty spray bottle
2 cups of water
½ cup of white vinegar
1 tablespoon of washing soda
2 tablespoons of borax
½ tablespoon of dish soap
Take a clean spray bottle and add the washing soda and borax. Use a funnel to help you pour in the substances. You’d better put the two powder-like substances into the bottle first so that they are washed by the liquids after that. Next, add the vinegar and wait until the foam is gone. After that pour the dish soap and water. Shake well.
You are ready. You can use this cleaner for a few surfaces like floors, some walls, bathroom tubs and skins, etc.
