Homemade Cleaning Recipes

I’ve been trying to eliminate harsh chemicals from my cleaning routine. I’m very sensitive to them, and sick of the migraines they cause. Also, I’d love to eliminate the extra plastic that they add to the landfill!

Here are some recipes I’d like to try, that I already have all the ingredients for:

Vanilla & Cloves Air Freshener Spray : I plan on using this + some lemon peels + drop of dish soap to be my all-purpose cleaner. My current one (based on many recommendations) is 1 part water, 1 part vinegar, 1 drop of dish soap, but the plain vinegar smell is getting old.

Salt Packed Citrus Shells: DIY Air Freshener : I bought kosher salt in bulk for some bath recipes, so I’ve got loads to spare…

Make liquid soap from a bar of soap : I’m sick of paying $6-10 for a small bottle of moisturizing shower gel, and creating all that packaging. I weirdly collect soaps from the nicer hotels we visit. I plan on melting those first, and adding honey, olive oil and brewed green tea/peppermint tea. I will re-use the container that my current shower gel is in.
