Alternatives to Chemical Laden Cleaners

Updated: Jun 7, 2019


Indoor air pollution ranks among the top environmental dangers, and the majority of that pollution comes from the cleaners that we use on a regular basis. Often we don’t even think to relate symptoms we have to the product we use! Yet, some of the immediate effects might be headaches, nausea, irritation to the nose or eyes, and dizziness.

It’s kind of hard to believe that one of the top pollutants is caused by something that could be eliminated entirely. The problem is, then how would we keep our homes clean?

The good news: there are options.

Chemical-laden cleaning products aren’t the only means for keeping your home nice and clean. Homemade, non-toxic cleaning products are easy to use, fun to make, and are definitely better for us and the environment.


Here are natural products you can start replacing those chemical products with now:

Baking Soda Baking soda is great for deodorizing, shining, and cutting through grease and grime.

Castile Soap Castile soap is made from plant oils and is used to clean surfaces and dishes. Vinegar Vinegar is a powerhouse cleaner that effectively eliminates soap scum, grease, and grime. Lemon Juice Natural lemon juice is great for cleaning mildew and mold, as well as for shining hard surfaces. Olive Oil Olive oil is good for both cleaning and polishing.


Try this recipe for a safe and effective all-purpose cleaner (except for wood):

-¾ cup water -¼ cup rubbing alcohol -5 to 10 drops of peppermint or lemon oil -1 squirt of natural dish soap

Pour all ingredients into a 16-ounce spray bottle. Shake well before spraying onto a surface, and then wipe clean with a towel.

If you don't care for the rubbing alcohol or vinegar scents commonly found in DIY cleaners then I recommend my personal favorite, Thieves Household Cleaner exclusively by Young Living. To learn more contact me or click here.
