DIY Natural Cleaners with Fall Scents (Video)

By adding fall scents to these simple, natural cleaners, you can clean your house from top to bottom while getting your home cozy for cold weather.

By Gina DeBacker

While fall cleaning is not as common a phrase as spring cleaning, preparing our nests for the long winter ahead is just as important. One simple way to get your home cozy for cold weather is with warming essential oils. These warming oils are among the strongest antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic agents known in the botanical world. By carefully using these spicy and earthy fall scents you may actually help prevent harmful viruses from entering your home while fighting the bacteria that tends to accumulate in closed spaces. Learn how to make a homemade air freshener, all-purpose natural cleaner and carpet freshener with warming oils such as clove, cinnamon, anise and fir.

Nothing feels as comforting and welcoming as a tidy, well-tended home. But a clean home isn’t necessarily a healthy one. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency notes that conventional cleaning products make a significant contribution to indoor air pollution. Clean your house from top to bottom with just seven simple ingredients: baking soda, distilled white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, salt, vegetable oil soap, washing soda and lemons. To save time and money, buy the ingredients in bulk and make your cleaners in advance.
