5 Everyday Items that Make Great Eco-Friendly Cleaning Solutions

When it comes to cleaning solutions, sometimes natural is really the way to go. Not only are natural cleaning solutions economical (you’ll have many of them in your pantry already) but they’re easier on you, your belongings, and the environment. With Earth Day this Sunday, it’s the perfect time to put down your bleach and learn new ways to spring clean and keep your home tidy.

Baking Soda

There’s a reason many of the top cleaning product companies advertise baking as one of their main components. This natural, household item is a cleaning powerhouse. Baking soda works as a deodorizer, so you can use it to keep carpets fresh, keep your garbage disposal from stinking, and a sprinkle in your cat’s litter box can help minimize odors as well.

Lemon Juice

From grease cutting to deodorizing, to mold killing, lemon juice is a favorite natural household cleaner thanks in part to its high acid levels. You can also mix it with other ingredients such as olive oil and vinegar to create powerful household cleaners that can rival any store-bought brand.  


With a slightly lower acid content than lemon juice vinegar is effective at removing lime deposits, soap scum, and grease from smooth surfaces like sinks and tubs. It’s also safe to use on carpets and hardwood as a gentle yet effective cleaner. Simply dilute white vinegar with water in a spray bottle as an effective cleanser.

Olive Oil

If you’re looking for a natural way to keep your wood furniture polished and clean you’ll be excited to know the secret lies in your kitchen. By combining half a cup of lemon juice with one cup of olive oil you’ll create a moisturizing, cleanser that adds shine and a fresh scent without the harm of aerosols.

Hydrogen Peroxide

This common medicine cabinet item has a fizzing action that will banish stains from fabric. A spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide can be used as a pre-wash treatment for stains, simply rinse the items with cold water after spraying.
