Baking Soda: For the DIY-er
We've said it before and we'll say it again. This is the holy grail of cleaning products, the almighty ruler of revitalization. Use it to scrub the shower and tub, to remove stains and odors, and even to help indigestion and whiten your teeth. It’s an all-natural jack of all trades.
Vinegar: A base for scrubbing, spraying, sanitizing
There's no excuse not to have vinegar in your household. It works in salads and it your sanitizing sprays! It's an all-natural, affordable ingredient that you can find in almost every store. Disinfect bacteria, mildew, and dirt on almost every surface by spraying with vinegar and wiping with a clean cloth.
Hydrogen Peroxide: A non-toxic and affordable stain remover
Take peroxide to the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and basically anywhere in your household. Use it to clean your cutting board and countertop, to clean the toilet, and even to ward off fungus and pesky bugs from your plants. It's a magic potion you'll want to keep nearby.

When making DIY cleaning products one upside is that there are no artificial smells, pungent odors, or strong fragrances that often come with chemical cleaners. If you're looking for a subtle, fresh scent to add to your homemade cleaning products, a few drops of essential oil—eucalyptus, lavender, tea tree—can keep things smelling clean and natural while also providing antibacterial properties.
