Chemical Free Cleaning Tips from Studio G Yoga

It is not necessary to use the latest and greatest products to clean your house. You know the ones, with exciting names that claim they’ll obliterate the bacteria with fire and fury like you’ve never seen. The list of ingredients reads like a science book and each one is terrifyingly toxic.

There’s no need to use those harsh chemicals you can’t pronounce! All you really need is a few ingredients that you likely already have around the house. Here are a few simple recipes to get started cleaning naturally:

Naturally Clean Disinfectant

Pass on using bleach; make this homebrewed germ-killing spray instead.

Naturally Clean Heavy-Duty Toilet Scrub

Deodorize while you clean: add 10 drops of tea tree essential oil and ½ cup of baking soda to the toilet. Pour in ¼ cup of vinegar and then scrub while the mixture fizzes.

Naturally Clean Laundry Bleach Alternative

It might not surprise you to know there’s a natural alternative to bleach: lemon juice. Don’t forget a few drops of lemon essential oil to really keep those white towels fresh!

Naturally Clean Dishwasher Detergent

  • 1 cup liquid castile soap - Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil

  • 20 drops lavender essential oil

Mix all ingredients in a quart-sized glass jar until combined. Add some of this liquid to one compartment of your dishwasher and fill the other compartment with white vinegar.

Naturally Clean Hand Soap

Create a foaming, non-toxic hand soap by mixing the following together in a foaming soap dispenser.

  • 1 tablespoon liquid castile soap

  • 1 cup water

  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

  • 10 drops orange essential oil

You can see from these easy-to-make recipes that it’s not hard to clean naturally, with ingredients you already have (and can pronounce!).
