Do it Yourself Household Cleaning Products

Say you’re cleaning the house and you happen to use the very last of that cleaner, but you aren't even close to being finished. Instead of stopping everything to run to the store, we've got some all-natural cleaners that you can make yourself using products that you more than likely already have around the house!

If you’re dusting that coffee table, and half way through you've used the last of the furniture polish, just take 1/4 cup each of olive oil, white vinegar and lemon juice (so that’s where that lemony scent comes from!) and pour a little at a time on a soft cloth, and polish away! Be careful not to spray it directly onto the furniture, as it could discolor the wood.

If you ran out of Windex, but need to get those little smudges off of those windows and mirrors ASAP, have no fear! Just take 1 tsp dish soap and mix with 1/3 cup white vinegar and 3 cups water, and your windows will be clear as day! Apply with a soft cloth and let the surface air-dry.

Have a dirty stove top that needs a good soaking? Sprinkle a good amount of baking soda on them, spray with hot water, let soak for about 30 minutes, and scrub clean! Easy as that, for a sparkling clean surface.

Want to get rid of that pesky soap scum? Take 1 cup white vinegar heated up in the microwave about 1 minute with 1 cup blue Dawn, spray on and wait for the soap scum to lift right off!
