Cleaning Product Recipes

Because we care about our health and about yours, we never use commericial cleaning products in our homes and we would never use them in yours either.

You may think that it expensive to "Go Green", that it costs too much to buy the ecological products or that it just takes too long to buy the ingredients and mix up the natural cleaning alternatives.

This just isn't true.

All of our recipes are cost effective, probably cheaper than most of the commercial products you buy every week, and they are very simple to make. You might like to consider making them in bulk quantities just to save a little time, and then you can store them in plastic containers for when you need them.

If you want to try any of our recipes at home, we'd love to hear from you about how successful they were or if you've got any improvements you'd like to suggest or even if you've got you own Green Clean recipes you'd like to share with us, then please log on to our Green Cleaning Blog and let us know.

Many of the Products use similiar ingrdients in different combinations or in differnent ratios, here's a quick introduction to the products you will need and where you can find them.

  • Borax - also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound, a mineral, and asalt of boric acid. It is usually a white powder consisting of soft colorless crystals that dissolve easily in water. Best places to buy from: Blah Blah Blah and a link
  • Washing Soda - also know as Sodium carbonate, it is domestically well-known for its everyday use as a water softener. It can easily be found in most supermarkets.
  • Vinegar - Not quite the same as the one you put on your fish and chips. Have a look for white distilled vinegar, you'll find it in any supermarket and it really is very cheap.
  • Lemon Juice - Cuts through grease, buy it in jars or buy lemons and squeeze them yourself.
  • Castille or Vegetable-Oil-Based Liquid Soap - unscented soap in liquid form, flakes or bars is biodegradable and will clean just about anything. You can find it in most good supermarkets.
  • Baking Soda - an all-purpose, non-toxic cleaner.
  • Cornflour - can be used to clean windows, polish furniture, shampoo carpets and rugs, starch clothes, absorb oil and grease.
