If you ask me I will very fast tell you DIY green cleaning is down right amazing, then add to that we get sick so very rarely so that’s a big clue to them no compromising our immune system & them working.

Now onto how to make all things: DIY Cleaning your Ceilings.

On ceiling just like on walls & other surfaces I always suggest using caution if using anything wet or that can stain, so yes research your type of finish & spot check painted ceilings,  wood, stucco or other types of finishes etc.

Food on ceilings or walls

Ceiling fans box fans etc: simply use a DIY spray cleaner or DIY dusting spray, simply spray and wipe box fans. For ceiling fans spray the blade & spray lightly the inside of a pillow case, slide pillow case over blade & use a broom to slide around & clean both sides & simply pull off.

Make a thick paste with baking soda & water, or borax & water & simply fill holes, wait for them to dry & paint over them, this can also be done with white toothpaste. This is for small holes only.

Killing & Repelling Flies, Gnats/Fruit flies, Spiders & other bugs (Spray):

Use a large spray bottle

16 oz rubbing alcohol  (or grain alcohol)

1 tsp natural liquid soap (Like Castile etc or original blue dawn)


Fill the rest of the bottle with water or use straight for best results
