Zero Waste Cleaning Products
It's a very rainy day in Toronto today - the perfect time to clean your house. Everyone's favourite activity. Am I right??
Well no matter how much you hate or love cleaning, you will be happy to know that it's SUPER easy to make your own waste free and eco-friendly products. The recipes I will be sharing with you today are made up of ingredients that you probably already have in your home!
I still think that buying sustainable cleaning products are way better than their toxic counterparts, but these products are still being sold in plastic spray bottles. To go zero waste I purchased some reusable glass spray bottles and cleaning cloths. Then I tested out some recipes for you all.
Here is my favourite stainless steel cleaner:
Here is my favourite all purpose cleaner:
measuring cup & funnel
1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup of tap water
10-20 drops of your favourite essential oil (I used Warrior from Arbonne)
1) Simply combine all the ingredients together, close the bottle and shake.
2) Add more essential oil drops if you want a stronger scent.
3) Label your bottle.
4) Store the cleaner out of direct sunlight or heat.
This works great for cleaning bathrooms, wiping off counters and sanitizing dirty surfaces.
As always, remember to use up the cleaning supplies you already have in your home before transitioning over to zero waste products, or making your own.
Lots of Love,
