This green cleaning starter kit is simple to put together. Plus, you may already have most of the items on this list in your home. When creating your green cleaning products it is much easier to make them than transfer them to their appropriate container. Also, be sure to label your bottles and containers with what the contents are.  Furthermore, I recommend you buy in bulk when possible.  Thus, more eco-friendly and you may be able to upcycle the containers your products come in.  For a more detailed description of what green cleaning is, you can start with what is green cleaning.  In addition, you will find more easy to make green cleaning product recipes. Make green cleaning part of your natural and healthy lifestyle.

Supplies and Ingredients Needed

Homemade cleaning products do the job like this DIY garbage disposal freshener! They work, are non toxic, and cost a fraction of the price of what you get at the store.   

  • 2 – 1 Quart (1 L) Spray Bottles – good heavy-duty ones, or amber glass bottles
  • 1 Shaker Jar with holes in the lid – you can use a mason jar or an old jar 
  • ¼ c. (60 mL) Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap – you can use whichever scent you prefer
  • 2 c. (480 mL) White Vinegar
  • 1 qt. + 2 c. (1 L + 480 mL) Distilled or Boiled Water (cold) – I prefer to use distilled water in my diffusers, deodorizing sprays, and all-purpose cleaners
  • 2 c. (500 g) Baking Soda – bicarbonate of soda
  • Essential Oils (optional) 20 drops/recipe – Doterra Tea TreeLemon, Purify, or OnGaurd. But really you can use the oils you like.
  • Microfiber Cloths – I prefer E-Cloths but any microfiber cloth will work. You can use these microfiber cloths for all your cleaning

How To Make Green Clean Products

To use spray the surface with your all-purpose cleaning spray to be cleaned, and wipe with a moist microfiber cloth.

Window Cleaning Spray

  • Add 2 Cups of White Vinegar

To use spray window or glass with your DIY window cleaning spray, and wipe with a dry moist microfiber cloth

Soft Cleaning Scrub

  • Fill up a glass container with baking soda
  • Add about 20 drops of your favorite essential oil and mix well. You can use lemon, peppermint, or a combination thereof

To use sprinkle your homemade soft cleaning scrub and clean away

It is simple to make these green cleaning products. To refill each one of these containers it costs less than approximately $1.25 to refill these containers.  I hope this clean green starter kit inspires you to replace the toxic cleaning products hiding under your sink.

Have fun!
