Do-it-yourself degreaser with natural ingredients



In this article we will show you how to make one do-it-yourself degreaser using only natural ingredients: the same chemical reactions that we obtain with commercial products can also occur with alternative natural substances.
The preparation of the natural degreaser is very simple: just mix a few products already available at home to obtain a very effective detergent for cleaning the house; we will save money and pollute the environment less! In this regard, here is the recipe for do-it-yourself degreaser.


Do-it-yourself degreaser, what we need

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Fresh thyme
  • water
  • Marseille soap
  • Lemon
  • Sodium bicarbonate

Do-it-yourself degreaser, advantages
Making a degreaser at home with natural substances has significant advantages:

  • Reduction of environmental pollution, since the water we will use in the rinse will not contain dangerous chemical additives
  • Less spending at home
  • Fewer containers
  • Less waste
  • Less allergies and intolerances: eliminating products with chemical additives means reducing the risk of redness and skin problems.

Do-it-yourself degreaser, the procedure

  1. Boil the thyme in a pot with one and a half liters of water for a few minutes and leave to infuse for a few hours: it is a plant with disinfectant properties
  2. Once the mixture has cooled, strain it to remove the leaves
  3. Add the lemon juice, 4 tablespoons of Marseille soap previously dissolved, 3 tablespoons of vinegar and two tablespoons of baking soda
  4. Mix all the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mixture
  5. Once this is done, pour the mixture into a plastic container, perhaps with a vaporizer, in order to spray the detergent directly on the surface to be cleaned.

Do-it-yourself degreaser, useful information

  • For particularly dirty areas, leave the mixture on for a few seconds

  • Place a label on the container with the words degreaser
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • You can use essential oils to perfume the mixture such as tea, cedar, pine, lavender, mint and eucalyptus: they are available in all herbalists.
