How to prepare a homemade detergent

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house and much of our family life revolves around it. It's here that we prepare food, chat and get together for lunch and dinner.
Cleaning the kitchen is a priority and that’s why I'm convinced that you’ll find the recipe for this detergent very useful. Use this water and alcohol based formula on all your floors, tiles, work surfaces, sinks and basins and your home will be clean and smell great!


- Lemon, the juice of 5/6 fruits (in alternative 200 gr of citric acid)
- Water, 1 litre
- Alcohol, 2 spoonfuls
- Essential oil of your choice to make the detergent scented


Heat the water and dilute all the ingredients in it.
Use this detergent just as you would use one of those that you normally buy; put it in spray bottle, spray it onto the surface that needs cleaning, wipe with a cloth or sponge, and then rinse.
