How to Have an Eco Clean Home. PART 1

Here are a few recipes, tried and tested by me for an Eco-Clean Home! Trying new things can be a little intimidating. It took me a while to ween myself off store bought and plastic packaged cleaning products. I was scared I’d melt my bench top or accidentally poison myself if I tried anything homemade. But I went for it and it works!

Buy these ingredients in bulk at your local store and never look back. Each step we take towards a more eco life is a step towards a healthier and happier world.

Ingredients for an eco-clean home:

  • White Vinegar (cuts grease, deodorises, disinfects)
  • Bicarb soda (cuts grease, deodorises, lifts dirt, whitens)
  • Lemon (disinfects and whitens)
  • Essential oils (makes it smell awesome)

There are basically two things I use, an all purpose cleaner, a glass cleaner, a floor cleaner (I use the floor cleaner for the toilet cleaner too). How to mix it all together:


  • 3 parts water
  • 1 part white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 6 drops of essential oil (or I use eucalyptus oil)
  • Add it all into a reusable spray bottle and shake before each use to mix in the essential oils


  • 1 part water
  • 1 part white vinegar
  • Add to a reusable spray bottle and use old newspaper to rub the glass until it is dry


  • Add 4 litres of warm water to a bucket then add
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil (or an oil of your choice)

Relax, have fun and remember if you wouldn’t eat it don’t pour it down the sink.
