Natural Cleaning Products That Work

I first discovered the miracle of cleaning clay after attending an H2O at Home party at a friend’s home. I was particularly impressed with both the effective of their cleaning clay and the simplicity of this all purpose cleaning product. Not only does it work great as a non-toxic, natural household cleaning product on most surfaces, it literally lasts forever!

Since trying out their products, I’d been dying to make my own natural cleaning clay. Unfortunately this homemaking project kept getting pushed onto the back burner. That is until I received the new Simply Earth essential oil recipe box for April. Well timed for spring cleaning, this essential oil recipe box contained a variety of recipes for natural cleaning products. It also had a bottle of that one ingredient I’d needed to finally make my natural cleaning clay recipe – lemon essential oil.

Each box also includes a collection of essential oil recipe cards. As their recipe cards are the same size as index cards, they fit easily into a standard 3″ x 5″ recipe box for quick reference and storage.

I love receiving my Simply Earth essential oil recipe box every month. It’s such a great way for me to explore new essential oils (some of which I’d never heard of like the amyris essential oil) as well as affordably grow my essential oil collection. Plus it feels good knowing that Simply Earth donates 13% of their profits to help end human trafficking. How can you not get behind a cause like that?

In addition to the essential oils, my box also contained liquid Castile soap and an aluminum spray bottle for making their tea tree & lemon multi-surface cleaning spray.

Tea Tree & Lemon Surface Cleaner

Ingredients:

1/3 cup hot distilled water
1 tsp. borax powder
2 tsp. white distilled vinegar
2 tsp. rubbing alcohol
10 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

Measure out the hot water into a glass measuring cup. Add the borax powder then stir to dissolve.

Follow with the remaining ingredients for the surface cleaner as called for in the recipe. Stir well to combine.

Now pour the mixture into an aluminum spray bottle. If desired, label your creation with one of the product stickers provided by Simply Earth.

Usage:

Shake this product prior to each use. To use, simply spray onto countertops and other non porous surfaces, then wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. Your natural tea tree & lemon essential oil surface cleaner not only cleans surfaces and kills germs, it will also leave your home smelling naturally fresh.

10 mL liquid Castile soap
10 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops tea tree essential oil

Natural Cleaning Clay Recipe

Ingredients:

4 oz. liquid Castile coconut oil soap
12 oz. white kaolin clay
40 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale to weigh out the Castile soap into a large glass bowl. Add the lemon essential oil and stir well to combine.

Then, in a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay. Slowly add the clay to the the liquid soap base, mixing with a fork until all the clay is incorporated into the soap. If necessary, use your hands to blend the last bit of clay into the natural cleaning clay. There should be no dry clay left. However the mixture should be very firm.

Now fill an 8 oz. low profile jar with the cleaning clay. Press the natural cleaning clay firmly into the jar until it’s filled. You can then use the back of a measuring cup or as spatula to press the clay flat on top.

Usage:

Massage a slightly damp bubble up brush or sponge onto the cleaning clay. Then cover your surface with the cleaning clay, adding slightly more water to the sponge if necessary to form a thick foam. Then remove the cleaning clay using a damp microfiber cloth.

For dirty glass stove tops, cover the entire stovetop with cleaning clay. Allow the mixture to dry on the surface, then wipe clean with a dry microfiber cloth. Follow with a damp cloth to remove any residue if needed. Then polish clean with a dry cloth.

My natural cleaning clay recipe works great for deep cleaning a number of other surfaces including granite countertops, sinks, tubs and tile. However, as will all natural cleaning products, I recommend testing the cleaning clay first in an inconspicuous area on natural surfaces.

There’s a universal truth about soapmaking. And it’s not really one we’re aware of until we actually devote ourselves to becoming soapmakers head on. It’s not a cheap hobby. In fact, getting started can require a pretty hefty investment. Throw in beauty and skin care recipes and you accidentally blew your entire grocery budget for the month. Even those DIY kits from soapmaking suppliers can run on the high side. I’ve seen a few that were over $100. And they only make a single recipe. Add essential oils to the mix and it can get expensive AF pretty quickly.

So why can’t there be an affordable way to explore multiple arenas of making simple essential oil recipes for home, health and beauty?

There is. It’s called Simply Earth.

What makes Simply Earth so amazing?

I received the January box from Simply Earth and can’t say enough great things about it. What makes it so amazing? Well, I’ll tell you.

1. It saves space.

If you’ve ever purchased materials in bulk for a project you know how much space they can take up. Living in a tiny *almost* studio sized apartment, I understand how important it is to save on space. So if you end up with a massive amount of containers and ingredients for a project you only plan to make once, it’s a challenge to find room for the leftover supplies. With Simply Earth you get all the materials you need in a SINGLE box for multiple recipes. There are still ingredients like essential oils, carrier oils and even beeswax leftover to use in future essential oil recipes. However, they aren’t going to take up three shelves in your cabinet.

2. You save money.

As previously mentioned, getting started with essential oils as well making natural home, health and beauty recipes can be costly. With Simply Earth, your up front costs are minimal. And with each new monthly essential oil box, you can make multiple new projects. All for an affordable price that fits most budgets. So creating your own simple essential oil recipes is fun, affordable and easy. It also makes it easy to grow your essential oil collection over time. Plus, all of the essential oils from Simply Earth have been tested and proven pure. So you know you’re getting a quality product.

3. You don’t need to buy any special equipment.

Most of my own natural beauty and skin care recipes require you purchase a digital scale for weighing out ingredients. Or you may need a special mold. However, if you aren’t a serious soapmaker, or just want a basic introduction to new ingredients, Simply Earth gives you just that. Everything you need to get started with no special equipment to buy. Plus there are six, brand new simple essential oil recipes to make each month.

4. It makes learning accessible.

Most of us have busy lives. And while we love learning new things, sometimes starting a new hobby or project can seem overwhelming – as well as time consuming.

Plus, each of the simple essential oil recipes found in Simply Earth boxes can be made in around ten minutes or less.

I loved carving pumpkins a kid. And then, of course, doing it all over again with my son throughout his childhood. At this point in my life, however, I’m kind of over the gooey, slimy pumpkin guts, kids stealing through the night to smash the neighborhood jack-o-lanterns and the eventual downfall of my creations.

Assuming my carved pumpkins survived being demolished by tricksters, watching something you spent a good deal of time on shrink and fade and rot, seems almost self defeating. To be honest, I’m of that mind to simply paint a faux pumpkin that I can reuse every year. If dealing with messy pumpkin guts and seeds aren’t your thing either, then consider these fall pumpkin decorating ideas instead.

Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Cleaning Caddy (Plus 5 Non-Toxic DIY Cleaners to Make Right Now!) If you struggle to stay organized, then check out this collection of clever ways to repurpose your cleaning caddy. Plus learn how to make your own non-toxic cleaners for your home this summer.

As a crafter and soapmaker, staying organized can be a challenge for me. However, it’s a necessity I can’t live without. I’ll admit that I do allow my desk to become a mess of papers, books and notes from time to time often. However, every time I reorganize and declutter my desk, it falls back into disarray within a few days.

While I can deal with a messy desk, keeping my soapmaking and craft supplies organized is an absolute must. Obviously keeping my supplies organized allows me to find what I need for my projects quickly and efficiently. It also serves as a great reminder of which ingredients or materials I have on hand for my next recipe.

Knowing what materials I have to work with is of upmost importance. I’m sure that you, like myself, have accidentally reordered a supply only to discover you still had it in stock, hiding in the back of your pantry. This was, of course, after you removed that new product you were dying to try from your cart in order to buy said supply to stay within your budget. (I SO hate that.)

The best thing to do in this particular situation is to make a list. And while I generally enjoy making lists, I loathe making inventory lists. It remains one of the most tedious tasks I have to perform, so I almost never ever do it. I’d much rather have limitless storage space and containers for organizing.

Cleaning caddies are perfect for neatly storing and carrying just about anything around your home. Especially if your regular storage spaces are overrun with craft supplies. So when I received this stylish, multi-functional enamel caddy from Grove Collaborative, I’d already thought of a reason to order two more!

Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Cleaning Caddy for Other Uses Around the Home This Summer

It’s also why I’m so excited to share this free offer with you: When you place your first order of $20 from Grove Collaborative, you’ll get this free caddy to help you organize your space. Even better, this awesome cleaning caddy comes filled with Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap, hand soap, and lotion. Plus you’ll also receive free shipping!

While you’re more than welcome to go the traditional route and fill your caddy with cleaning supplies like a multi-purpose spray, microfibers, a wand duster, and Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap – why stop there? Following you’ll discover six clever ways to repurpose your cleaning caddy for something other than simply cleaning! (Plus keep reading after these tips for recipes to make your own homemade cleaners!)

Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Cleaning Caddy. Repurpose your cleaning caddy into a mini herb or succulent garden. Add a few inches of gravel or pebbles for drainage, then a layer of potting soil, and your plants. The handle makes it easy to carry your plants to the sink for watering!

Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Cleaning Caddy

1. Mini herb or succulent garden.

I love the idea of a kitchen herb garden in an unconventional planter. Add a few inches of gravel or pebbles for drainage, then a layer of potting soil, and your plants. My favorite herbs to grow are basil, cilantro, and rosemary. Another benefit of the caddy: The handle makes it easy to carry your plants to the sink for watering!

Simple gardening hack idea - Turn your cleaning caddy into a garden tool organizer! Fill it with a cute pair of gloves, trowel, pruning shears, hand rake, and kneeling board. Easily carry your garden tools around the yard instead of running back and forth to the shed.

2. Garden tool organizer.

Here’s a gardening hack for all my green thumb friends: Repurpose your cleaning caddy into a garden tool organizer! Fill it with a cute pair of gloves, trowel, pruning shears, hand rake, and kneeling board. Easily carry your garden tools around the yard instead of running back and forth to the shed. When you’re done gardening, Meyer’s hand soap and lotion are perfect for pampering hardworking hands. (You can also learn how to make your own homemade gardener’s soap from scratch!)

3. Hair tool organizer.

Low on storage space under the bathroom sink? Repurpose your cleaning caddy to create a styling station with your hair dryer, brush, flat iron or curling iron, and products all within reach. I recently added Seed nourishing hair and body oil (which is available through Grove) to my kit, and it’s perfect for taming summer flyaways! My roommate, Bambi, is always flat ironing her hair while I’m always trying to put curls in mine. So having a place to stash our styling tools is a must!

4. Dog toy holder.

Your furry best friend will love this trick: Repurpose your cleaning caddy into a dog toy bin that matches your decor. Fill the caddy with tennis balls, stuffed animals, and other toys. Your pup can reach his own toys, and you won’t have to worry about stepping on a squeaky toy in the middle of the stairs! (This was, of course, my dachshund’s favorite idea!)

5. Ice chest for summer entertaining.

Raise your hand if you’re ready for patio season! This caddy is just the right size to hold ice and a few bottles of wine or lemonade. It’s easy to carry outside, and so much cuter than a plastic cooler. I also recommend adding Murphy’s Naturals mosquito repellent candles to your Grove order to keep summer pests away from your party! (You can keep wine in stock all summer long without ever leaving the house with Winc!)

6. Art supply organizer.

With summer finally here I’ve been spending a lot more time outdoors. Part of that time includes hunting for river rocks to paint! Rather than struggling with multiple containers for our paint brushes and paint pens, my roommate and I repurposed this cleaning caddy for our art supplies. Now it’s quick and easy to remove our art supplies from the dining room table for our regular Tuesday date night dinners.
