4 Easy Homemade Household Cleaners

Looking to save money on household cleaners? Check out 4 homemade cleaners you're sure to love! These green cleaning recipes work all over the home.

Spring cleaning is upon us! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and, if you’re like me, you know this will be the only time you feel productive enough to do that deep cleaning before you invite all your friends over for the biggest basketball games of the season.

While you want your manufactured home to be clean, you may be unwilling to use cleaners with chemicals that just give you and your family a headache. However, those commercial green cleaners are a real hit in the wallet.

Regular cleaning materials are usually filled with powerful chemicals that can irritate skin, give off fumes, and even disrupt your body’s endocrine system. While all cleaning materials involve chemicals and chemical reaction, homemade cleaners can be made with natural products that you may commonly eat, natural soap and plain water.

The Last Multipurpose Cleaner You’ll Need

It does not get cheaper or easier than this: 1 part white vinegar or lemon juice to 9 parts of water. Boom.

In a regular spray bottle, this mixture will cost you next to nothing while cutting grease quickly, rubbing away stains and killing odor.

The Ultimate Manufactured Home Floor Cleaner 

I found the recipe for this homemade floor cleaner and found that people use it for laminate, linoleum and tile. Sure, you can’t use this on carpet, but basically any other floor in a manufactured house can be cleaned with this, and it works great!

Made with vinegar, rubbing alcohol, water and dish soap, this cleaner can be made for pennies. Click on the link and read the instructions before using.

The Only Toilet Cleaner You’ll Want To Use

This is yet another simple and easy cleaner that is easy to make and can deal with tough stains and unpleasant odors safely by using non-toxic Borax.

Just mix ¾ cup of Borax with 1 cup of white vinegar, 10 drops of lavender essential oil and 5 drops of lemon essential oil for a cleaner that not only cleans your toilet but also has a pleasing smell that won’t give you a headache.

A Stove And Grill Cleaner And So Much More

The things you cook food on get messier than any other thing in your home. To get out those tough grease stains from you stove range, grill grates or even your oven, use a simple mixture of 1 part table salt, 1 part baking soda and 1 part water to gently scrub away those stains. This mixture is powerful, so be careful to not use on surfaces that are easy to scratch.

Enjoy cleaning your manufactured home with these great green home cleaners. Keeping your home clean with regular home maintenance and these green cleaning recipes will help your home last a lifetime.
