Nature provides us with ingredients that can really pack a cleaning punch. There was a time when going green pretty much meant you were forced to make your own cleaning products at home or pay exorbitant prices for natural cleaners, which weren’t easy to find.
Today, there are green cleaning products specifically designed for practically every task around the home — bathroom cleaners, laundry detergents, kitchen degreasers, dishwashing soaps, floor cleaners, and many more are readily available and highly effective.
Homemade green cleaning ingredients
A simple trip to the grocery store provides you with many of the ingredients you need to make effective green cleaners at home. DIY cleaning products are a little tricky, because when you start looking for recipes, you’ll find huge variations in mixtures, amounts, and wait times. But if science lab was your jam in school, gather up some baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and salt, and experiment with what concoctions work best for you for different jobs. Otherwise, choose from numerous ready-to-go green cleaners at Grove.
"When I began my natural journey, my only option growing up in rural Maine used to be DIY solutions like vinegar and water," says Bell. "I loved to experiment, but didn’t always have the time or the expertise to really hit the mark. Today, I love Grove Co.’s cleaner concentrates with their amazing plant-based fragrances, paired with reusable glass spray bottles."
