Lockdown home detergent hacks to try at home

One sure downfall of lockdown is running out of essential cleaning products before you’ve had a chance to replenish them during the weekly shop. With online delivery slots being hard to come by, there are many household products that you can make at home. Simple ingredients like vinegar, bicarb and even lemon juice can make up some pretty potent blends. Here are some of our favourites.

A great multi-purpose cleaner

Every home needs one to destroy dirt and freshen up those kitchen tops, bathroom surfaces and bedroom furniture. Packed full of natural disinfectants, this mix is a potent one that’s sure to impress.
1 Tablespoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
1 L of Hot Water

¼ cup of White Vinegar

Method: Just mix it all together and place in a spray bottle to use when you like.

Trusty toilet cleaner

Who would’ve thought that a homemade concoction could leave your toilets sparkling? We must say, this one smells lovely too…
