Home-made Natural Cleaning Products Course

View Classes

Learn to create your own cleaning products, and more, with our DIY courses in Sydney.

What’s not to love about a freshly scrubbed home? But one quick look at the back of the bottle can leave you wondering what chemicals you’ve just sprayed and wiped around the place. Not to mention the single-use plastic containers most cleaning products are packaged in.

But you can get your clean on and replace those chemical-based cleaners with natural cleaning products made easily using just a few simple ingredients.

Join this workshop to learn how to use items such as vinegar, baking soda and essential oils to make your own effective, sustainable and inexpensive cleaning products. We will also discuss the toxic ingredients in many commercial cleaning products and their implications for health and the environment.

The 2-hour practical workshop will cover the essentials for every room in the house, making cleaning products for the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. You’ll learn the secrets to making natural cleaning products, and take home skills to help free you from standard storebought cleaning products.

You will make and take home...

  • A general household citrus peel spray for cleaning kitchen benches, cupboards and toilets (quality reusable spray bottle provided)
  • A liquid handwash
  • A bathroom cleaning paste (a natural version of a crème cleanser)
  • A carpet deodoriser
  • A natural air freshener using essential oils, spices, herbs and fruit peel (quality reusable mister bottle provided)

Course content

  • Discussion on commercial cleaning products and their impacts
  • Discussion on what you will need and how to source the ingredients
  • Making the cleaning products, by both demonstration and hands-on participation
  • Tips for success, including shelf-life / storage of your home-made products and how to get the best results
  • Essential equipment for DIY cleaning: spray bottles, glass jars and upcycled towels/clothing

We will also learn some general tips and hacks about how to freshen your house, prevent mould, mildew and odours and remove common stains.

Participants will receive an eBook with recipes for natural cleaning products.
