Chemical-Free Cleaning products

Posted by Health Boutique on


Standard cleaning products can be harmful to our health. They contain numerous toxins that we breathe in and can harm our bodies. Home made, chemical-free cleaning products place less burden on the environment, are inexpensive ways to help you save money and are better for your health. 

Here is a product list of the things you need to start making your own chemical free cleaners:

  • Baking Soda; virus-killing abilities, effectively cleans, deodorizes, brightens and cuts through grease.
  • Castile Soap; cuts through grease and cleans.
  • Vinegar; removes grease, soap, scum and grime.
  • Olive Oil; cleans and polishes
  • Lemon Juice; cuts through grease and shines hard surfaces.
  • Essential Oils; Great scent additions to our products.

    A great all-purpose cleaner mix together equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle.

    Rub alcohol on surfaces made of marble, granite or stone, as vinegar is no good for these surfaces.

    Kitchen Bleach:

    In a plastic bottle mix ½ cup baking soda, 1-teaspoon castile soap and ½ teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Apply on a cloth and scrub thoroughly.


    In a spray bottle mix 2 cups of water, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap and 20-30 drops of high quality tea tree oil.

    Bath and Shower Cleaner:

    Vinegar is great for cutting through grime. Spray white vinegar on the grimey areas and leave for 30 minutes for it to do its job. Rinse with a sponge and warm water. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar add a few drops of your favourite scented essential oil.

    Dish Soap:

    Simply mix 1 cup of liquid castile soap, 3 tablespoons of water and a few drops of essential oil of choice in a squidgy bottle.   Shake well and use as needed when hand washing dishes.

    Fabric Softener:

    Add 20-30 drops of essential oil of your choice to a one-liter jug of white vinegar. Shake mixture well before use and add 1/3 cup to every wash for naturally soft clothes.

    Tiled floors:

    In your mop bucket add 1 part white vinger to 2 parts warm water. Mop the floors as usual and leave to dry, no need to rinse.
