Household cleaners you can make at home

The modern home is usually filled with chemical-based products meant to complete various tasks including pest elimination, cleaning, sanitising, and many others. These products, while effective, may cause serious health hazards to everyone in the household.

In the long run, homeowners might get forced to pay the price of using these toxic commercial chemical-based products as everyone at home falls at risk of health problems caused by the extended use of synthetic chemical-laced merchandise.

By following the formulas below, you can make your own non-toxic cleaning products in the comfort of your own home and choose to make environmentally responsible choices starting today.

Here’s a list of formulas that involve ingredients you probably already have lying around at home that you can use as alternatives to commercial household products.
