12 Natural Cleaners for Your Home

2 of 14
Vinegar and other natural cleaners

White Vinegar

Vinegar cleans much the same as a standard all-purpose cleaner does. Simply mix a solution of equal parts vinegar and water and you can tackle almost all areas of your home. It disinfects and deodorizes, and the smell dissipates after drying.

Just remember to test your solution on a hidden area before your cleaning spree. Improperly diluted vinegar can eat away at tile grout, and isn't good to use on marble surfaces.
