Homemade Cleaner Recipe Roundup: 42 DIY Recipes To Keep Your Home Naturally Clean | Growing Up Herbal | Love making natural, non-toxic homemade cleaners? Look no further! Here are 42 of them so you can clean your house from top to bottom!

Did you know that back in the day, most people would clean their house from top to bottom twice a year?

Yeah, they did! They cleaned it in the spring to clear out dust and grime that had settled in from the winter, and then they cleaned it again in the fall to get it ready for the long winter months ahead.

I don’t know about you, but come spring and fall, I’m itching to give my house a good cleaning. I’m not sure why, there’s just something about those seasons. Of course, that feeling doesn’t last long, but this fall I’m going to be ready and hopefully you will too.

So in order to help us both, I’ve gathered up 42 different natural cleaning recipes from around the web that will help you get your house spic-and-span this fall just in case you’re like me and you get the itch to clean it that way!

Don’t get overwhelmed! I’ve divided them all up so they’re easier to find. Just pick and choose what works for you.
