Make Your Own: Plastic-free Natural Cleaner

Make Your Own: Plastic-free Natural Cleaner

You may have read my blog about boycotting plastic-packaged, chemical-ridden kitchen cleaners. I totally kicked in this habit and our home is forever better. Here is one of my DIY, fool-proof recipes in making your own all-natural, all-purpose cleaner.

Makes: 500ml

You will need:

  • A large bowl or jug
  • 50ml White Vinegar
  • 500ml warm water (not hot)
  • 30g bicarbonate of soda
  • Glass spray or recycled bottle
  • Funnel (optional, however, if you’re anything like me, you need all the help you can get!)

Step 1: Slowly add the bicarbonate of soda to the warm water stirring as you go.

Step 2: Slowly add the vinegar (while pretending to be Harry Potter).

Step 3: Pour it into your glass bottle or recycle bottle. Leave to cool completely before putting on the lid. Tada! You smashed it! Giving those 10 minutes to make your all-purpose cleaner has saved you cash and plastic pollution.
