We love the feeling we get after a good house clean. Everything shines and sparkles and we can sink into the sofa and enjoy a much-deserved break as we admire our work. What’s not so enjoyable, though, is the pungent aroma of chemicals and sprays from store-bought cleaners.
If you hate the stench of chemicals as much as us, there are plenty of fantastic homemade cleaning products around that work just as well. We’ve brought together a collection of our favourite chemical-free and non-toxic household cleaning recipes so that you can enjoy a clean house, without all the nasty chemical smells.
