5 All Natural Kitchen Cleaners That Actually Work

The kitchen is where I spend most of my time cleaning. For such a small space, it tends to get dirty fast. And since there's a baby in the house again, I'm especially mindful of all the chemicals in store-bought cleaners. Some of that stuff is enough to keep you awake a night, or at the very least, inspire you to make some changes in your cleaning habits.

Recently I've started mixing up my own cleaners and now I'm a bit obsessed. Not only are these cleaners chemical free, but they do just as good as job as the store-bought cleaners, and they're much cheaper to make. If you're looking to save a buck, or cut down on chemicals in your kitchen, try these 5 All Natural Kitchen Cleaners:

Homemade Disinfectant Wipes

Using a large mason jar, combine ¾ cup filtered water, ¾ cup white distilled vinegar 10 drops of lemon essential oil, 8 drops lavender essential oil and 4 drops bergamot essential oil. Next cut 20-30 10-inch x 10 squares out of an old cotton t-shirt. Submerge cloth into the mason jar mixture and gently shake to ensure cloth is fully soaked in liquid. Now step back and enjoy your homemade disinfectant wipes.
