There are number of reasons why making your own household cleaners is a good idea. I have read a lot of information about dangers of common store bought cleaners. You can make many of your own household cleaners utilizing some very basic and common ingredients. This does not have to take a lot of your time with mixing and making. You can use some basic ingredients such as Baking Soda, Vinegar, Rubbing Alcohol, Washing Soda, Borax, Mild Dish Detergent, etc.

Really nice and useful information you gave. I used vinegar and baking soda for window cleaner. Now I used a dishwashing liquid mixed for clean my window. Are you sure The hard stains will be easily removed with adding a water?

Absolutely true, Ammonia is used is cleaning and itís a good cleaning agent because it helps in removing stubborn stains and dirt from the floor and glass surface. If we use ammonia with ease and in its full concentration or even diluted with water or soap it can serve as good cleaning agent.

There are many inexpensive, easy-to-use natural alternatives which can safely be used in place of commercial household products: baking soda, soap, lemon, borax, white vinegar.

A cleaning mixture for oven cleaning:
Moisten oven surfaces with sponge and water. Use 3/4cup baking soda, 1/4cup salt and 1/4cup water to make a thick paste, and spread throughout oven interior. (avoid bare metal and any openings) Let sit overnight. Remove with spatula and wipe clean. Rub gently with fine steel wool for tough spots. Or use Arm & Hammer Oven Cleaner, declared nontoxic by Consumers Union.

Homemade Window Cleaner with Vinegar

Easy to Make Vinegar Based Window Cleaner
  • 1 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 cup warm water
  1. You can make a general window cleaner using water and distilled white vinegar.
  2. The vinegar will remove any film that has developed on your windows and thoroughly gets rid of any smudges you might have while leaving your windows free of streaks.
  3. Fill the glass spray bottle with all the ingredients and shake to mix thoroughly. Spray the solution on your windows and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth.
  4. If your windows are filthy, youíll want to pre-wash them with soapy water to remove the dirt and grime.
