Homemade cleaning products


  • Microfibre cloths: they may be made from synthetic materials, but these cloths, when dry, pick up dust like nothing else. When damp, they cut through grime with just a little elbow grease. They can also be thrown in the washing machine and used again and again – but make sure you don’t add fabric softener. It coats the fibres and reduces their effectiveness.
  • White vinegar: great degreaser and when diluted can be used on wooden floors, tiles and benchtops.
  • Lemons: tougher than vinegar. Try rubbing a cut lemon dipped in salt on sink stains.
  • Bi-carbonate of soda: use on its own as an abrasive or combine with vinegar to move tough stains.
  • Salt: good natural scourer. Dip a toothbrush in salt and scrub tile grout.
  • Washing soda: this is more alkaline than baking soda so use gloves. A natural alternative to sugar soap.
  • Soap flakes: when dissolved in warm water, pure soap is a good all-round cleaner. If you need extra power, add some washing soda.
