you can easily make your own household cleaners by using combinations of a few simple ingredients. You probably already have most of them in your home.

Here are some very common household items that can be used for cleaning:

Baking soda
Soap—Unscented liquid soap without petroleum distillates cleans almost everything

Cornstarch—Shampoos carpets and rugs

Vinegar—Cuts grease, cleans mildew

Essential oils of tea tree, Thieves, lemon and lavender—Tea tree and Thieves oil is a natural antiseptic, antifungal and disinfectant. Lavender and lemon are gentle antiseptics and antibacterials.
