Growth Trends for Related Jobs

Eco-friendly cleaning businesses are gaining popularity today. Many environmentally conscious people want to clean their homes using natural, non-toxic cleaners, but do not have the time, energy or knowledge to do so. An eco-friendly cleaning service is the perfect answer to this problem. These businesses can create their own cleaning products themselves using simple, inexpensive ingredients bought in bulk. The recipes for these cleaning solutions can be taught to clients for a fee, or used to clean their homes.

Make Cleaning Formulas

Make an all-purpose cleaner by mixing 1/4 cup of Mrs. Meyers all purpose concentrated cleaner with 1 gallon of warm water. Fill spray bottles with this formula for use on countertops, cupboards, vinyl and tile floors.

Tackle tough, greasy stains by slicing a lemon in half. Sprinkle baking soda over the stain and scrub it with the fruit-side of the lemon. Rinse surface well with water.

Mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1 gallon of warm water. Fill spray bottles with solution to use to clean windows, tile and bathtubs. Use this solution to mop wood floors, rinsing the mop often.

Use a microfiber cloth for dusting.

Make furniture polish by mixing one part organic lemon juice to two parts organic olive oil. Pour a very small amount on a clean rag to polish wood furniture.

Tip

Purchase the ingredients for the cleaning supplies in bulk to save money. Label every bottle with the ingredients and the solution's purpose.
