Cleaning your apartment is a necessary part of daily life. Unfortunately, a lot of the cleaning agents we use are terrible for the environment. Here are a few eco-friendly apartment living tips to help you be more green and make your own cleaners.

To make an all-purpose cleaner for all surfaces except for glass, all you need is 3/4 a cup of water, 1/4 a cup of rubbing alcohol, a drop of dish soap and a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. Go for an oil that has a scent you enjoy like peppermint or orange. Mix these ingredients into a spray bottle, shake it up and put it to use.

For a fantastic glass cleaner, mix together two cups of water, two tablespoons of white vinegar, two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol and five drops of essential oil with peppermint. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, shake it up and spray it onto a rag for the best results.

One cup of water with 1/4 cup of white vinegar makes for a fantastic shower cleaner.
