Favorite Homemade Cleaning Products

I wanted to share the cleaning products I use on a daily basis around the house and how I made them. I actually learned how to make the window cleaner from my cleaning lady that comes once a month. She is amazing and does all the deep cleaning so I don't have to. I kinda love her! Anyway, she has a lot of windows to clean, considering the whole back of my house is covered in french doors, so this lady knows her stuff. 

 I found out about these awesome spray bottle jars from www.flatcreekfarmhousse.com If you haven't heard of Sarah yet, you really need to check her out and make sure you go to her about page. She is an inspiration and her photography skills are amazing! Okay, so back to cleaning... you can purchase the bottles I use HERE . This window and mirror cleaner is very inexpensive and is non-streaking, I promise you will love it!


Ingredients for Window Cleaner

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup water

1 teaspoon Seventh Generation Dish 

Mix all three ingredients in a 16 oz measuring cup with lip. Poor into spray bottle and shake well. I have provided a link to the labels I used below.

Another favorite household cleaner I love and is almost identical to the window cleaner ingredients, is my All-purpose cleaner. I use this cleaner to wipe down our counters and table. We also use it to clean up spills or after a pet accident. This is also what I use to mop the floors with but in larger quantities.


All Purpose Cleaner

1 cup water

1 cup white vinegar

1 teaspoon Dawn ( update: I have changed to plant based Seventh Generation Dish soap For a  healthier cleaner)  dish detergent

4-5 drops Essential  oil 

Mix all ingredients in a glass measuring cup with lip and pour into spray bottles.

For the labels, I used the Avery Kraft Brown 2 1/2 inch round labels #22808 . I happen to have these left over from my baking business, so I just used the Avery Template and printed them myself. There are so many designs to choose from and you can also add clip art if you're feeling creative.
