Many of us are unaware of the harmful ingredients in our every day cleaning products we use daily and how it can impact our health and our homes. By eliminating cleaning products we are stopping ourselves, children and animals from inhaling a lot of chemicals. Not only are cleaning products not very good for our home but neither are the air freshener or wall plug-ins as they have a huge dose of harmful chemicals.
Don't worry, I've compiled some homemade eco-friendly cleaning products that do just as good of a job!
Lemon-based cleaners as a homemade cleaning product work great for many surfaces around your home. Although, countertops made of stone such as granite and marble are porous which may corrode the surface over time from the acidity.
Carpet spills are almost impossible to avoid.

By mixing 2 cups of water, 1 cup of vinegar, 2 teaspoons of salt, and your desired amount of lavender you have the perfect mix to remove any carpet stain!
A simple recipe of rubbing alcohol, vinegar, corn starch, and warm water will give you a solution to clean your mirror, fixtures, glass and shiny surfaces. Use a microfibre cloth or a newspaper, which is an old trick but seems to work well!
