non-toxic cleaners for home

8 DIY Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaners for a Non-Toxic Home

The two rooms I clean the most are the bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen cabinet is stuffed with spray bottles, and when you look at the ingredients on the labels it’s…ugh. Scary.

Sure, bleach will clean just about anything, but it’s irritating to the skin and the fumes are toxic. When we were trying to get pregnant, eliminating toxic endocrine disruptors become extremely important to me. Now, as a mom, I want to keep them away from my family.

Cleaning is one of the main reasons I got into essential oils. I saw the savings instantly when I made my first shower spray, my MildEW Spray. Since then, I have been slowly replacing those store bought bottles with my own essential oil cleaners. Here’s how you can do the same!

Kitchen

All-Purpose Counter Top Cleaner

  • Equal parts water and distilled white vinegar
  • 10 drops On Gaurd
  • 8 drops Eucalyptus
  • 10 drops Lemon

Combine all ingredients in spray bottle, shake to combine.

Oven Cleaner Spray

  • 1 C warm water
  • 3 TB baking soda
  • 1 TB Castile soap
  • 5 drops Lemon
  • 5 drops Clove

Combine all ingredients in spray bottle, shake to combine.

Drain Cleaner

  • 1/4 C baking soda
  • 1/4 C distilled white vinegar
  • 3 drops Wild Orange

Pour essential oil directly down drain, follow with baking soda, then vinegar.

Allow to sit 15 minutes, then pour hot water down the drain, followed by cold water to unclog.

Sticker and Goo Remover

  • 1 TB baking soda
  • 1 TB vegetable oil
  • 2 drops Lemon

Mix in small glass bowl. Apply small amount to sticker/label/goo and let sit 1-2 minutes.

Use a cloth or paper towel to remove. Apply again and repeat if needed.

Bathroom

Soap Scum Remover

  • 10 drops Lemon

Mold & Mildew Preventer

Add all ingredients to spray bottle and shake well. Spray directly on mold/mildew or tile after a shower.

Let sit, do not rinse. This can be used daily!

Toilet Bowl Cleaner

  • 1/2 C baking soda
  • 1/4 C distilled white vinegar
  • 10 drops Melaleuca

Mixx ingredients until baking soda dissolves.

Add to toilet, let sit 5-15 minutes. Scrub with toilet brush and flush.

Spray Bottles

Avoiding plastic is important. Instead, get some dark glass bottles to store your new toxic-free cleaners. I like using colorful labels to make everything look nice.
