While we’re mainly about food here at HelloFresh, we’d never deny getting a little house proud. Of course, when you love whole, fresh, seasonal ingredients as much as we do, it breaks your heart a little to have to break out the industrial grade bleach and scary chemicals to clean your kitchen. Fortunately, this do it yourself household cleaner and air freshener are low on the nasties and big on beautiful scents and easy to source household items.

That’s not to say they won’t do the job – your grandma’s probably been using good ol’ white vinegar and baking soda to clean things since before you were a spark in the corner of someone’s eye. And there’s a reason these more gentle formulas are so popular and long lasting – they work! Particularly if you suffer from allergies or reactions from chemicals, swapping out cleaners for your own DIY concoctions can offer a lot of relief. Even if you keep the big guns around for really big messes, using these for your regular clean will dial back the harshness and give you citrus smelling serenity instead!

Citrus All-Purpose Cleaner

Because white vinegar is 5% acetic acid, it kills bacteria and viruses (with the help of a little elbow grease). For this cleaner, we neutralized the strong, vinegar-y odor with a trifecta of citrusy essential oils: orange, grapefruit, and lemon.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 16-Oz (or 450mL) spray bottle
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 3 drops orange essential oil
  • 3 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 3 drops lemon essential oil

Here’s what you’ll do:

Pour all ingredients into the spray bottle, using a funnel if necessary. Gently shake before using.

Lavender Air Freshener

Baking soda is the jack of all trades when it comes to your kitchen — unclogging drains, removing oil and grease, deodorising the fridge (and compost bins, cutting boards, and litter boxes), and generally freshening up the air. Unlike a hardcore synthetic air freshener, you can spray and spray to your heart’s content without worrying about gassing up the place.

Just like with the cleaner, this air freshener makes ample use of fragrant essential oils. This time, lavender and lemon, a combination that is both invigorating and calming in equal measure.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 16-Oz (or 450mL) spray bottle
  • 2 cups distilled water
  • 1 tbs baking soda
  • 7 drops lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops lemon essential oil

Here’s what you’ll do:

Pour all ingredients into the spray bottle, using a funnel if necessary. Gently shake before using.

The average household is a danger zone for families—especially those with kids—as there are several toxic cleaning products easily within reach. Many of these products are those we use every day, for instance; dishwash cleaner, toilet cleaner, and multi-surface cleaner amongst other products. Most of these products are toxic, with manufacturers claiming that if used as directed, these products are safe. This leads to a false sense of safety and security.

There are several cleaning products manufacturers in India that claim to have products that are nontoxic, having natural ingredients or claim to be environment friendly. However, there is no standard definition for these. Such products could still be toxic and cause irritation to the skin, mouth and eyes if not used properly.
