How to Make All-Natural Spring Cleaning Products


It’s spring cleaning time at Grant Central and we’re making our own DIY natural cleaning products! Truth moment: I'm *way* more excited about the DIY part than the actual cleaning. #justsayin


But, I do LOVE making my own products though because they're much so better for the environment (and way cheaper), way friendlier to my my migraine-prone senses, and of course safer for my cleaning-obsessed #miniboss than most of the commercial cleaners out there.



Each product that I'm featuring is super easy to make and requires just a few basic ingredients that you probably already have in your home. And, because you know that I always like to keep it a little fancy, I’ve included links below to some of my favorite cleaning accessories too.

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that I may receive a commission if you click a link and purchase something that I’ve recommended. Please know that all opinions are my own and  I only recommend products that I love. Nothing is here that I wouldn’t use in my own home for my own family.

Most of my recommendations are from Grove Collaborative, which I joined after trying out their service and loving it. It’s a recurring shipping service for household products that’s free to join, and you can order whatever you need, in whatever quantities you want, and schedule them to arrive whenever you need them. No more running out of things you need and no more excessive stockpiling either. Shipping is always $2.99, no matter how big or small your order is.
