12 Natural Cleaners for Your Home

Bowl of lemons

Lemon Juice


Like vinegar, lemon juice can be used to clean many places in your home. It can dissolve soap scum and hard water deposits, and is great to use for cleaning and shining brass and copper.

Try mixing lemon juice with baking soda and vinegar to create a paste for cleaning dishes, surfaces, and stains, or mix it with olive oil to use for polishing furniture. The possibilities are endless!

Just be aware that lemon is a natural bleaching agent (great for stains!)— make sure to test it out on hidden areas to avoid any damage or bleach marks.
