Home-made cleaning products

July 9, 2011 | Filed under Cleaning hints and tips

If you think about it, there are a number of commercial cleaning products on the market that include these ingredients eg household cleaner with baking soda or lemon (citric) along with the slogans clean and whiten or cut grease.  Well it’s because they have woken up to the power of green advertising.  But they just add these natural ingredients to the chemicals in the product, they don’t  replace the chemicals, unless they are selling eco-friendly products.

So go for it make your own.  It only takes a few minutes – and check out the size of your supermarket bill. If you don’t have a food processor you can use any other kitchen  equipment with cutting blades.  Or you can save electricity as well and use a fine hand grater for the soap and crush the washing soda crystals to a powder with a rolling pin or well sealed glass jar or  bottle filled with water or sand.

We’ve got some ideas for you for dishwasher powder, laundry powder, household cleaner
