With the 3 DIY multipurpose options proposed below (from Moral Fibres), and a box of clay based creams, you are equipped for kitchen worktops / hob cleaner / bathroom sink / windows / electronic equipment, and more. You can also simply use microfibre cloths and mop, with no other product than water (really! check them out).
Multipurpose DIY Sprays
How to make: Mix the liquid Castile soap with essential oils, then cooled boiled water.
How to use: Shake gently before each use. Can be used all around the house - but to clean wooden surfaces, spray the mix onto a cloth and then wipe the surface.
From: Moral Fibres
How to make: just mix all ingredients together.
How to use: Use on most floors, worktops (not marble, granite, see warnings above) and bathroom.
How to make: Pour hot water into a jug. Stirring well, dissolve the citric acid in the hot water. Add 20 drops of essential oil if required, or 10 of two different oils. Decant the mixture into your spray bottle and off you go!
How to use: Citric acid is a great all-round cleaner. It kills bacteria, mould, and mildew, and is brilliant for general disinfecting and cleaning, removing soap scum, hard water stains, calcium deposits, lime, and rust.
