15 Chemical-Free Household Cleaners You Can Make Yourself

Don’t you just love that feeling when you sit on the couch and look around to see a spotless, tidy home? We sure do… except for maybe that chemical-y smell. With all those indecipherable ingredients found in the store-bought stuff, it’s a little frightening even thinking about what they actually do to our health. It’s a good thing that there are so many DIY household cleaners that will give you the same clean-house effect without all the harsh chemicals. Check out these 15 solutions that will make you feel good about cleaning.

1. Dishwasher Detergent Tabs: Do you actually know what is in the detergent that cleans the dishes you eat off of? We don’t either, which is why we totally vote for these all-natural, lemon-y dishwasher tabs. (via PopSugar)

3. Dusting Spray: It’s time to show those dust bunnies who’s boss with this dusting spray infused with the essential oil of your choice. Goodbye dust, hello lemons. (via PopSugar)

4. All-Purpose Cleaner: Because you know it’s all about dat vinegar. With such great cleansing properties, it’s no wonder that it is the main agent in this grapefruit spray. (via Hello Natural)
