Did you know that it’s easier than ever to make your own all natural kitchen cleaners at home? These products are cheap, easy, and safe to use for almost any cleaning project.


Why Make Your Own Cleaner?

Have you ever tried looking at a bottle of household kitchen cleaner? If you can even find the ingredients, can you name them? Every minute spent cooking in the kitchen means two minutes of cleaning. Creating your own all natural kitchen cleaners can be a cheaper alternative because they use everyday ingredients. They can also be made quickly and on demand for use at any time in small batches. You can also make them in larger containers to make monthly or yearly supplies. One of the major benefits of all natural cleaners is that they’re safe and non-toxic because you know exactly what’s in them. Let’s take a look around the kitchen and see what all natural kitchen cleaners we can use for different situations.


The Cleaners


All-Purpose Cleaner

A great All-Purpose Cleaner is a must for any room of the house. They can be used to clean stoves, countertops, cabinets, windows, and can even be used to mop floors. These are your daily grime fighters. The mix of vinegar and baking soda is a classic combination that cuts grease, dirt, and filth from any surface. Combine with your favorite essential oils for a fresh smell that lasts.



  • Large Spray Bottle
  • 1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup White Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Distilled Water (Tap Water is ok)
  • 20 Drops of Essential Oil (Plus more if you’d like)



  1. Take a spray bottle and wash it out completely.
  2. Add the baking soda and vinegar to the spray bottle.
  3. Fill with 1 cup of water.
  4. Add as many drops of essential oil as you’d like to the mixture based on your preference.
  5. Spray on affected areas and wipe away.


Scrubbing Cleaner

Some cleaning jobs require a little more force to complete. This is where the scrubbing solution comes into the picture. This mix will get deep into the stain or mess and grab a hold of the dirt. Baking soda stars again as the hero of this soft-scrub mixture. The addition of an environmentally friendly liquid soap (ECOS, for example) gives a cleaning power to match the strongest of in-store options.



  • 1 ½ Cups of Baking Soda
  • ½ Cup of Environmentally Friendly Liquid Soap
  • 20 Drops of Essential Oil (Plus more if you’d like)
  • Plastic, Sealable Storage Container
  • Mixing Bowl



  1. Add 1 ½ cups of baking soda to the mixing bowl with the ½ cup of environmentally friendly liquid soap.
  2. Stir rapidly until mixture combines into a paste.
  3. Add as many drops of essential oil as you’d like to the mixture based on your preference.
  4. Add the paste to the plastic, sealable storage container, and store until ready for use.
  5. When ready to use, apply the paste to an affected area, let sit for 30 seconds and with a towel, scrub the area until dirt is removed.
  6. If paste dries out, simply add a little water and stir to regain consistency.



Drain Cleaner

There aren’t many problems worse than having a backed up drain. Food, build-up, and other foreign objects can find their way into our drains leaving us with a nasty, stinking mess. Next time, don’t call the plumber and use this fantastic cleaning solution. Surprise, surprise - vinegar and baking soda do their magic again.



  • ¼ Cup of Baking Soda
  • ¼ Cup of White Vinegar
  • Boiling Water



  1. Add the ¼ cup of baking soda to the drain by sprinkling down and around the rim of the drain.
  2. Pour the ¼ cup of vinegar over the baking soda and watch it begin to foam.
  3. Let the mixture sit and work for about an hour.
  4. Pour boiling water down and around the drain to wash away the mixture.
  5. Test the drain by running water. If it’s still smelly or still a little clogged, repeat the process until clear.


Oven Cleaner

This one is cheating a little because you don’t have to use the expensive products in the stores to achieve a clean oven. In fact, this is a solution that you don’t even need to make in advance. You can make this in minutes just prior to use. The combination baking soda, vinegar, and water star again as the heroes of your next oven cleaning.



  • ½ Cup of Baking Soda
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons of Water
  • Vinegar in Spray Bottle



  1. Combine the baking soda and water (adjusting water amount as necessary) to create a paste.
  2. Spread the paste on the walls, floor, and ceiling of your oven. The baking soda will have a scrubbing effect.
  3. Let the paste stand overnight.
  4. The next morning, take the vinegar in the spray bottle and spray anywhere that you can find the baking soda mixture. This will create a foaming reaction.
  5. With a clean, damp cloth, wipe away the solution until the oven is clean.
  6. Additionally, you may reapply the scrubbing mixture to areas that need deeper cleaning.

About the Author

Hello, My name is Justin Curtis, and I am the creator of Mr. Garbage Disposal. While I am not a professional plumber, I am quite the handyman. I work as an accountant, but outside of work, I like to work with my hands and live frugally.

2 years ago, the garbage disposal in my house broke because of a faulty part. After buying the new part and looking at installation fees, I realized that it was way outside of my budget. To solve my problem, I took it upon myself to learn everything I could about garbage disposals. I learned the best affordable parts, where to get them, and how to install them. Through this experience, I discovered my passion for working with my hands.

Considering most people don’t know much about garbage disposals, I want to share my experience and knowledge with you, which is why I created Mr. Garbage Disposal.

My goal for Mr. Garbage Disposal is for it to be the go-to place for people to learn about garbage disposals and how to fix them, while not breaking the bank along the way.
