Free Printable : Cleaning + Laundry Swaps
I think the secret to finding alternatives to conventional cleaning products is finding a product or DIY recipe that works just as well (most often better) and making a simple swap. I have a free printable for you today with my favorite cleaning and laundry swaps. These simple, safe, and natural cleaning recipes + laundry swaps are some of my favorite alternatives to traditional and often harmful products.

Here are 2 of my favorite DIY recipes below – head to the free printable linked below for the rest of them!
Window Cleaner Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
- 3 drops essential oil
Instructions: Mix in spray bottle, spray on cleaning cloth for mirrors and directly on windows. Wipe with a micro-fiber cloth for a streak-free shine!
Scrubbing Powder Recipe
- 2 cups baking soda
- 20 drops of your favorite essential oil (I love the Cozy Home Blend for this recipe)
- a squirt of dish or castile soap in the sink or tub
Instructions: Combine the baking soda and essential oil in a mason jar to store. Sprinkle in your sink, add a squirt of dish soap and scrub clean with a sink-safe scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly.

Thanks so much for all your insight and information on cleaning and housekeeping. I enjoy and learn alot from your posts. One laundry question: If an article of clothing says no fabric softener, do you still use vinegar in your wash? I’ve begun using vinegar in my laundry thanks to your suggestion and like it, but have wondered If it’s safe to use with clothing (particularly sports fabric) that caution against using regular fabric softener. Thanks for any insight you can give!

I love vinegar with sports fabric – it doesn’t coat fibers like a traditional fabric softener so you don’t need to worry about it in the same way!
