A non-toxic lemon cleaning spray is just 3 ingredients away

  • Updated

If you’re looking for a natural non-toxic way to get a deep clean without shelling out for those sometimes expensive natural cleaners, there’s a simple recipe you can make at home that takes just minutes. Here’s how to get a sparkling clean without toxic chemicals.

What You’ll Need

This easy lemon-scented cleaning spray couldn’t be easier. To make it you’ll just need the following ingredients:

How to Make It

Once you have your three simple ingredients (and some hot water), you can easily mix together this cleaning spray by combining the vinegar, baking soda, and hot water and shaking or stirring together. Then squeeze the lemon juice into the mixture and incorporate. A natural cleaning set like these spray bottles with a built-in lemon juicer from Full Circle is perfect for making small batches. Just divide the recipe depending on your needs.

Why It Works

Lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda are a power combination cleaner without harsh chemicals. Like vinegar, lemon juice is both anti-bacterial and antiseptic. It’s also a great de-greaser for those tough dishes. The baking soda adds some natural foam and grit for stuck on messes (think the foam or suds in traditional cleaners) and can help you tackle calcium in the bathtub. Lemon juice also acts as natural bleach to get out lime stains. If you prefer a different scent, you can substitute lemon juice with other citrus, like grapefruit or orange.
