Natural ingredients you can use as a substitute for cleaning products

How are these ingredients used in the home?

Have you ever wondered if any of the natural ingredients at home can serve as alternatives for cleaning products? There are many ingredients in your kitchen fridge and shelves stored away that serve as effective cleaning products just on their own. This can free you from the cost and harsh scent of commercial cleaning supplies.

The three ingredients we will go over today are lemon, olive oil, and vinegar.


Lemon juice acts as powerful cleaning agents as they can be used to clean just about anything in the kitchen. Prepare both the juice and zest of the lemon.

  • Stains on surfaces: You can get rid of almost all stains on surfaces by leaving lemon juice for a few minutes. Stains inside and outside microwaves, countertops, and sinks can be removed with this all-natural ingredient.

  • If you place a bowl of zest in the kitchen, it will give the home a more refreshing scent.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is used by many as an essential ingredient in the kitchen. However, the benefits of this ingredient go beyond just health and wellness. It can be used to polish wooden and leather furniture around the house.

  • Wooden furniture: Mixing olive oil and lemon juice will remove dust and dirt on wooden furniture. Simply rub the mixture and wipe with a cloth or towel.

  • Leather furniture: For leather items, you can mix olive oil with apple cider vinegar to produce a natural polish. Drop some of the mixtures on a cloth and wipe the areas that need a shine.


Vinegar is widely known as an all-purpose cleaner that can easily cut through grease. You can find different kinds of vinegar on store shelves which have different acidity levels. These levels determine how effective it is as a cleaning agent.

  • Wood floors: Combine equal amounts of vinegar and water into a spray bottle. Apply it to areas that need cleaning.

  • Showerheads and faucets: Use the same mixture on showerheads and faucets, to get rid of the bacteria.
