I have used homemade hand soaps for years. Natural liquid hand soaps are quick and easy to make. I want to keep all the extra chemicals and additives away from my home. You get enough of them from outside of the home. Many 100% pure essential oils are naturally disinfecting and they bring a natural sent. If you have a sensitive skin, lavender oil is a good choice. Lemon and peppermint are favourites for other people. If it’s the flu season, I use doTerra’s protective Onguard blend that has wild orange, clover, cinnamon and eucalyptus oil in it (or I use ready Onguard foaming hand soap).
Here is my recipe for self made liquid hand soap:
1/3 of the bottle Castile soap (or other natural liquid soap/ doTerra’s cleaning concentrate)
I gave yesterday my recipe for natural homemade stain remover. I made a video just to show how quick and easy it really it. If you are wondering about the Finnish labels in the packets, the white powder stuff is baking powder and “Vetyperoxidi 3%” is hydrogen peroxide. In Finland you can buy hydrogen peroxide from pharmacy or order online. I am not sure about brick and mortar stores in another countries. It’s good to water the fabric and put the stain remover both sides of the fabric.
I made a vlog, where I talk about two recipes for natural cleaning products. I tried couple days ago a self-made oven cleaner, that I thought was pretty good. I tried it for my stove. For years I have used my natural homemade all-purpose cleaner and it works great for my family with a kid and cats.
Now is the time of the year, when a lot of people are having people over and they want to clean the house for the holidays. I try to avoid as much chemicals as I possibly can. I have made this homemade oven cleaner and I wanted to share the recipe for the holidays. I have also an old article, where I have a recipe for all-purpose cleaner, if you want to check that out.
1/4 cup of baking soda
1/4 table salt
1 table spoon of vinegar
2 table spoon of water
4-5 drops of doTerra’s Purify oil blend/ lemon oil
Mix it all together at put it all for at least 15 minutes to oven / stove stains
