How to Make Your Own Cleaning Products at Our Apartments in Gainesville, FL

Making your own cleaning products can be a worthwhile endeavor, especially if you’re interested in cutting down on the amount of store-bought products you use. In many cases, simple household items you may have in your apartment right now can be mixed together to create effective cleaning solutions.

Look around your apartment to see if you have the following ingredients:

    • White vinegar
    • Baking soda
    • Liquid dishwashing soap
    • Washing soda
    • Borax
    • Essential oils in a variety of scents, such as lemon, lemongrass, and eucalyptus

You can make anything from toilet bowl cleaner to glass cleaner with these products. Consider creating an all-purpose cleaner that you can use to wipe up spills on your countertops, tabletops, and other surfaces. Simply mix together the following ingredients and carefully pour them into a spray bottle: 1 tablespoon borax, 1 tablespoon washing soda, 1 teaspoon dishwashing soap, 1 cup vinegar, and 4 cups hot water. You can also add up to 30 drops of an essential oil to the bottle to create a pleasant scent.

For a natural way to clean a toilet, simply add 1 cup of baking soda to coat the inside of the bowl, then a cup of vinegar, finishing with 10 drops of an essential oil. Scrub the bowl, flush the toilet, and you’re done!

You can also easily make a glass cleaner by mixing 1½ cups of vinegar, 1½ cups of water, and up to 10 drops of an essential oil and pouring the cleaning solution into a spray bottle.

As you can see, making your own cleaning products doesn’t have to be a hard task. You can easily do it using simple ingredients you may already have at home to create a variety of all-natural cleaners.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
