DIY Natural Handmade Cleaners
Have you ever really looked at the ingredients on any cleaning product from the supermarket? There are bottles, packets and sachets filled with ingredients you can't even pronounce, let alone have ever heard of. I have rounded up some of the top DIY handmade eco cleaning products for your home so you can head to your local supermarket or hardware store for a few basic ingredients, and make your own. These eco-friendly concoctions will leave your house sparkling. From an all-purpose cleaner, to liquid dish detergent, you'll be amazed at how easy these DIYs are to pull off. And after making the initial investment for the all-natural ingredients, these cleaning supplies will only cost a few cents per container to make.
1. All-Natural DIY Liquid Dish Detergent
The thing I love about this DIY is that you can personalise the detergent with your favourite scent. Let’s not kid anyone though, smelling roses while you wash up is not going to mean it’s your new favourite activity, but hey, it’s got to help right? Even just a little?

4. Chemical-Free All-Purpose Cleaner
Who doesn’t love the convenience of something you can spray and wipe (oh see what I did there)? This amazing little DIY is for a lavender sage recipe, but guess what, you can infuse it with anything!

5. Reusable Dryer Sheets You Can Make At Home
Winter is well and truly here. My poor lawn is like a sponge and no socks are safe, even if you are trying to make a quick dash. So for many of us winter means the use of a dryer. For many others is means your home is turned into a Chinese laundry with more clothes horses scattered through the house than the Melbourne cup. This DIY leaves your laundry smelling great and also your clothing with no static… yes please!
