5 DIY Recipes to Replace Toxic Cleaners in Your Home!

Many of you comment about not wanting to use toxic cleaning products in your home – and for obvious reasons – they smell, are dangerous to have around the house, and the DIY alternatives are safer and in most cases, just as effective.

Here are 5 of the very worst offenders for toxic cleaners and how to make homemade versions for a more enjoyable cleaning experience!


** Drain Cleaner **

Commercial drain cleaners are among the most dangerous of all cleaning products. Most contain corrosive ingredients such as sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) that can permanently burn eyes and skin. Many can be fatal if ingested.

Here’s a DIY Drain Cleaner:

1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/4 Cup cream of tartar

Mix in a bowl.
Using 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time, pour it down the drain
followed by 2 cups of boiling water.
Wait at least one minute before repeating

The boiling water changes the chemical composition of the ingredients and makes it strong enough to eat through grease and grime. This method may take few tries, but it often does the trick!


** Toilet Bowl Cleaner (Can also be used in the shower/tub) **

The corrosive ingredients in toilet bowl cleaners are severe eye, skin and respiratory irritants. Some toilet bowl cleaners contain sulfates, which may trigger asthma attacks in those with asthma and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) which can irritate lungs and burn eyes, skin.

Here’s a DIY Toilet Bowl Cleaner:

1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup dish soap
1/4 hydrogen peroxide
15 drops tea tree oil


** Oven Cleaner **

One of the primary ingredients in oven cleaner is Sodium Hydroxide, more commonly known as Lye. If you remember that scene from Fight Club, then you know what this stuff can do to human skin. Hint – nothing good!

Here’s a DIY Oven Cleaner:

1 cup baking soda
4 tablespoons dish soap
1/2 cup vinegar
15 drops (sweet) orange essential oil – GREAT DEGREASER

Make a heavy paste, leave for several hours or overnight, wipe up with clean water.


** Degreaser **

Much like oven cleaner degreasers contain a variety of potentially harmful chemicals which when inhaled can have serious side effects.

Here’s a DIY Degreaser:

1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup dish soap
20 drops sweet orange EO


** Bleach **

Bleach is a highly toxic and dangerous chemical. Bleach causes respiratory problems and the fumes should never be inhaled.
Bleach can also burn the skin.

Here’s a DIY Bleach:

1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup 3% hydrogen peroxide
3/4 cup washing soda
