Part 1 of 3: How to Make Your Own Cleaning Products | Ingredients and Supplies

Welcome to the world of DIY cleaning! Making your own cleaning products is not only fun and rewarding but also eco-friendly and cost-effective. Plus, you can customize your cleaning solutions to suit your preferences and needs. In this three-part blog series, we will guide you through the process of making your own cleaning products, from ingredients and recipes to safety tips and precautions.

But before we get started, let's talk about the supplies and tools you'll need.

First, you'll need containers to store your cleaning solutions. You can repurpose old spray bottles or buy reusable containers like the ZipBag®, which is perfect for storing cleaning solutions in larger quantities.

Next, you'll need measuring cups and spoons, as well as funnels for transferring liquids. And don't forget gloves to protect your hands from harsh chemicals.

As for ingredients, here are some of the most commonly used:

  • Baking soda: a mild abrasive and deodorizer that can be used for cleaning and scrubbing.
  • Vinegar: a natural disinfectant that can remove stains, grease, and mildew.
  • Castile soap: a gentle, plant-based soap that can be used for all-purpose cleaning.
  • Essential oils: add fragrance and extra cleaning power to your solutions.

With these supplies and ingredients on hand, you're ready to start making your own cleaning products! Stay tuned for Part 2, where we'll share some of our favorite cleaning solution recipes and techniques.
