How to create a charming home cleaning kit! Give it as a house warming gift or keep it for yourself.
It’s definitely the Home Economics major in me, but I fully geek out over good cleaning products! I truly believe that a clean home brings happiness and peace to the soul.
And having a charming home cleaning kit motivates me to clean. I know that when my house is clean I feel uplifted, so I like to share my love for awesome cleaning products with friends too. Here’s how you put together a charming home cleaning kit as a gift.
Creating a charming cleaning kit to give as a gift is special and something that a lot of people appreciate. It can be given as a house warming gift, baby shower present or even a birthday present, if the recipient likes cleaning products as much as I do!
If it’s a bday gift, just make sure you do your research on your friend’s likes, so it doesn’t come off as you saying their home is a pigsty! This kit is also a great way to introduce friends and family to the world of natural, non-toxic cleaning.
We picked out some of our favorite products from Common Goods and one of my favorite multi-purpose cleaners from Puracy and filled a charming, fringe basket with beautiful supplies to clean with, as well as our favorite laundry items for the laundry room.
How to Create a Charming Cleaning Kit
Start with your favorite natural cleaning products. We chose Common Goods and Puracy for this basket. You’ll want to add:
Wool dryer balls
Essential oil to scent the dryer balls
Twisted sponges. and you can also add cleaning cloths like microfiber cloths and polishing cloths.
Start with a charming basket and fill it with fluff at the bottom. This one is from Target.
Fill the basket with the products you’ve chosen. I love this lavender dish soap and it comes in a charming glass jar. It smells so good!
Wool dryer balls are an essential part of my laundry routine! I add drops of lavender essential oil to them and they make our clothes smell incredible! You can save a lot of dryer sheets too. Such a great method to introduce to friends.
Cleaning can be cute too! I absolutely love these popsicle sponges and they actually clean inside wine glasses really well! It adds a charming, quirky touch to the basket. You can buy them here.
Linen water is also a product I like to introduce to my friends. The uses are versatile since you can spray it on clothes to reduce wrinkles or to refresh bedding. I make my own mixture too and use it every night on my pillow.
Roll up a pretty hand towel for the final touch in the basket.
The basket will be full of eco-friendly clean, non-toxic, thoughtful products, gifted in a charming way. You can also add in our cleaning checklist! If you’d like to make your own products, see our DIY cleaning guide here.
