I basically have 2 different cleaners I make myself. One with vinegar to give things a thorough clean, and the other is a degreaser which is brilliant at lifting off more stubborn dirt. These are pretty much all I need around the house! The only additional thing I use is some hydrogen peroxide to disinfect surfaces when necessary - but I buy it in a big carton and decant onto a glass spray bottle to keep single-use plastic bottle to a minimum. I also either buy glass bottles of vinegar or a large carton, as like a lot of people i'd like to live a less wasteful life and the Kitchen can be a nightmare for single-use products. 

 

 

KITCHEN CLEANER

White vinegar

Orange and lemon peel

Hot boiled water

1/2 teaspoon of glycerine

Essential oils (I used orange, bergamot and lemon but I have also used orange and cinnamon)

So this does smell a bit vinegar-like as you spray it but the smell soon goes, leaving the citrus and essential oil scent.

Basically, you need to fill a large jar with orange and lemon peelings, pour in your white vinegar and leave to infuse in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Then strain the infusion and pour into a bottle until it is filled halfway. Top it up with boiled water, and add around 10-20drops of essential oil along with the 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin. Shake it all up and its ready to go.

 

 

KITCHEN DEGREASER

 

500ml Just boiled water

1 teaspoon Soda crystals

2 tablespoons of liquid castile soap

15 drops Lemon essential oil

10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

3 drops of rosemary essential oil and/or fresh rosemary.

¼ teaspoon of glycerine

 

Pour the hot water into a measuring jug and add the soda crystals. Stir until fully dissolved. Pop all of it into your glass spray bottle and add the remaining ingredients. Give it a good shake! This stuff has worked wonders on cleaning up the carnage after the kids have eaten. I use it on the hob as well as its great at getting dried food off!

 

Happy cleaning!
