Three Natural + Non Toxic Homemade Cleaners

Today I’m sharing Three Natural + Non Toxic Homemade DIY Cleaners that you can easily incorporate into your daily life! They’re so simple to make and include ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!

Making my own cleaners is something that’s always been on my radar. When we moved out west I made the switch to store-bought natural cleaning products, which have been great, but I’ve been waiting for them to be used all up so I can try my hand at making my own. 

Today I’m sharing three fun and EASY ways to make homemade cleaners. The best part? They’re super kid friendly. My kids loved mixing everything together and using the spray bottles. Read: they cleaned the house. 

YES. They spent about an hour, walking around the house spraying stuff and then wiping it down with a rag. Was it the best clean? No. Were there tons of streaks? Yes. Did it give them a fun activity to do with minimal whining? HECK YES.

Triple win, you guys. Bonus cleaning? Check! Nontoxic cleaners your kids can spray around aimlessly? Check! Unexpected kid activity they love? Check!
