I’ve been making my own cleaning products for years. When I first started, there weren’t any recipes or tutorials available online and there was a lot of trial and error… mostly error.
Natural Home Products that Work
Did you know, for instance, that vinegar and liquid castile soap together make a nasty slimy mess? Or that vinegar is better for making pickles than for cleaning many surfaces?
I didn’t, but I definitely found out the hard way!
Now, there are dozens of pre-made “green” cleaners available. Some are really good, but all of them are much more expensive than making your own.
Over the years, I’ve saved hundreds of dollars (and avoided putting dozens of plastic bottles in landfills) by making my own cleaners and you can too!
I found a company that shares my passion for natural cleaning products (pre-made and homemade) and you can get most of my natural cleaning supplies for free this week:
One of the questions I get most often when I post DIY cleaning recipes is:
Where did you get that awesome spray bottle?
and I didn’t really have a reliable source for them. I’d ordered some online before but they hadn’t always been great quality and I refused to recommend a bottle that would stop working a few weeks after purchase.
When Grove Collaborative offered to create a limited edition Wellness Mama + Grove glass spray bottle (made in the USA) for homemade cleaners and print my cleaning recipe right on the back and send it to you for free, I jumped at the chance!
What is Grove Collaborative?
Great question. They used to be called ePantry and I had heard of them but never tried them until recently. Now, I order many of our household staples from them, including:
- Toilet paper
- My favorite razor ever
- Glass spray bottles
- Washing soda
- Bon Ami
- Wool dryer balls
- Laundry soap
The best part… this week, you can get several of my favorite things for free:
Never tried Grove Collaborative? You get all of this:
- 16-ounce Glass Spray Bottle
- Metal Cleaning Caddy
- Orange Essential Oil
- Bon Ami Cleaning Powder
- 60-day free VIP trial and free shipping
That is a value of over $40 at completely no cost when you try $20 of their products. In fact, when I ordered, I got $70 worth of products I already love and use for under $25 with the discounts and free products including:
- Glass spray bottle
- e-Cloth microfiber
- Orange essential oil
- Liquid castile soap
- Apple cider vinegar
- Dish Soap
- Kitchen sponges
- Baking soda
- Bon Ami

Already a Grove Member?
If you are already a Grove customer, they’ll add a pack of walnut scrubber sponges to your next order at on cost. Just click here.
How it Works
- Go to Grove Collaborative by clicking here.
- Take a simple 4-question quiz to help them find your favorite products.
- They will create a custom cart of products for you to try and add the spray bottle, microfiber cloth and essential oil for free. It will also apply free shipping.
- Change or delete any products you don’t want (just keep at least $20 in there to get the free stuff!)
- Check out, save tons of money and free stuff shows up at your house!
- If you join their VIP program, you always get free shipping + 5 free gifts each year!
The things I ordered were substantially less expensive than the same things at our local store and I now get natural toilet paper and recycled razors (two things I ALWAYS forget at the store) delivered automatically.
Reasons I Like Grove Collaborative:
- Flexible delivery schedules — automatically receive monthly shipments or edit delivery dates to get products exactly when you need them
- Custom baskets — They make suggestions, but you can always make changes or add/remove products
- No surprises — you’ll get two reminder e-mails (one week and one day before a scheduled shipment) so you can make any necessary changes
- Great customer service — They have an entire Community Happiness team!
- Free Stuff Through Monday– Until Monday, you can get some of my favorite things for free! (Unfortunately, they can’t ship to Alaska, Hawaii or Canada).
With all the money you’ll save, grab some good coffee or herbal tea and spend 30 seconds making this simple homemade cleaner.

I received the glass spray bottle from Grove and the sprayer quit working after one spray. Very disappointing. It is a really nice bottle too.
Aloha WellnessMama and Readers,
Unfortunately I’ve had a VERY DISAPPOINTING experience with Grove. I was excited to check out the website and purchase non-toxic cleaning products. I spent about 30 minutes cruising the site, then when I wanted to check-out, it told me my address in Hawaii could not be shipped to. ?? I wish they made it clearer on the website before I wasted my time. (I had my order shipped to my brother’s house in Texas.) That’s not the only way that my time was wasted – I’ve been trying to communicate with them via email and phone and no one is answering me back. It has been several weeks! I received an email asking about the quality of their customer service and obviously I told them that I was very disappointed and that I will never use them again. I will not recommend their company to anyone. I’m still waiting back to hear from them as I’ve emailed them AGAIN. Also, I did not receive my whole order! Im missing their glass spray bottle, cleaning caddy, and 2 bottles of essential oil! WellnessMama, thank you for promoting an excellent idea, but no thank you as their company is not organized and it seems like ghosts or robots are operating their website. Please do something to help make this and other cases right. Call Grove and let them read our complaints so they know how to fix them. Reading so many complaints here is disheartening and I feel taken advantage of. Thank you for your concern and action, Rose
I ordered the Promotion pack with no issues, except for the recipe – thanks for sharing it above, Katie! I am not interested in continuing with Grove, though, so I went to their site. To my surprise, I was unable to log in! I figured at first that I may have just forgotten my password, so requested that a link be sent to my email. However, it appears that my email does not show up in their system!!!?? Hmmm…any thoughts on what to do? With their stated policy of sending two reminders prior to a shipment, I am wondering if they’ll contact me instead of me having to work to figure out how to reach them… I’m a little nervous after reading some of the other comments.

They’ve always contacted me and emailed before shipment, so they should. It may still be worth reaching out and having them check to make sure you won’t be charged. Their contact info is here https://community.grove.co/hc/en-us
So bummed! Just got my first shippment and didn’t get any of the freebies! They were listed when I checked out and I spent double what you need to get them 🙁 I got a free copy of your book however I already have one since I preorded in December. Was really excited but there’s no phone number to contact them sho Im just waiting for an email reply……I hope nobody has this issue.
Is there a code we need to use to get the spray bottle? I am already a member but when I click your link, it will only add the bottle for $8.95.
The spray bottle is only for new members I think…
I just ordered from the Grove Collaborative and saw a post on this website for a recipe for linen spray. How do you use linen spray?
It is a delightful, indulgent treat ! Just spray onto sheets and pillowcases on a bed or into the air. My favorite is lilac.
Has anyone ever had experience with Melalecua? My boss uses their products at the office. I have liked the things I’ve tried. Just wondering if their products are as safe and environmentally friendly as they claim. Thanks in advance!
Good Luck this is another company that only gives you discounted products if you do their monthly membership and they require you to buy a certain amount per month. If you buy it outright they charge a lot more. Also EWG doesn’t list them.
I also am trying to make an order and the essential oil is not in the cart…
I just called the customer service number and she added the free essential oil =) Also she said if you have a VIP membership, they do price matching!
I am making an order now but it is not showing the essential oil as part of the package…
I received my box yesterday and I love all of it!
How did you wait it for?
