Spring is the perfect time to press refresh on your dinner routine and get re-energized by the bright, flavorful ingredients of the season. But before you bust out the pots and pans, give your kitchen some love and scrub, scrub, scrub until everything’s spick and span.

Instead of using the usual all-purpose cleaners, try your hand at cleaning your kitchen with items you’ve made from scratch. Not only will these DIY cleaning products come together in less time than it takes you to drive to the store and back, but they’ll save you money too. The best part? No harsh chemicals around the kitchen!

Before you know it, your spotless kitchen will be filled with fresh, citrusy scents and become your new happy place. After this DIY adventure you may never turn to the store-bought products again.

Citrus All-Purpose Cleaner

Since white vinegar is 5% acetic acid, it can kill bacteria and viruses (with the help of a little elbow grease) and it makes the perfect base ingredient for your DIY cleaning product. For this cleaner, we neutralized the strong, vinegar-y odor with a trifecta of citrusy essential oils: orange, grapefruit, and lemon.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 16-Oz Spray Bottle
  • 1 Cup White Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Distilled Water
  • 3 Drops Orange Essential Oil
  • 3 Drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 3 Drops Lemon Essential Oil

Here’s what you’ll do:

Pour all ingredients into the spray bottle, using a funnel if necessary. Gently shake before using.

Lavender Air Freshener

Baking soda is the “jack of all trades” when it comes to your kitchen — unclogging drains, removing oil and grease, deodorizing the fridge (not to mention garbage disposals, cutting boards, and litter boxes) and freshening the air.

Just like with the Citrus Cleaner, this air freshener makes ample use of fragrant essential oils. This time, lavender and lemon.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 16-Oz Spray Bottle
  • 2 Cups Distilled Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 7 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 3 Drops Lemon Essential Oil

Here’s what you’ll do:

Pour all ingredients into the spray bottle, using a funnel if necessary. Gently shake before using.
