Chemical free cleaning is all the rage these days but some Chemical-free cleaning products are really expensive! Sure, you can try making your own non-toxic cleaning DIY products (which I highly suggest!) but even buying green cleaning supplies at big box stores can break the bank. That’s why I put together this list with the Best Cleaning Supplies from the Dollar Tree.
This list contains the best non-toxic cleaning products that I found at my local Dollar Tree. You’d be surprised in the amount of Dollar Store cleaning products and Dollar Store cleaning supplies that are on this list!
Are Dollar Tree cleaning supplies good? There are questionable cleaning supplies at the Dollar Store… so I had to think outside the box when putting this list with Chemical-free cleaning tips and which Chemical-free cleaning recipes contain ingredients found at the Dollar Tree.
You’ll find links to cleaning hacks, cleaning tips, and cleaning ideas under each item as well!
45 Best Cleaning Supplies From The Dollar Tree
A cleaning bucket can be used to hold and transport all your cleaning supplies and helps with mopping floors and washing out showers and tubs. Add a cleaning bucket to your shopping list the next time you are headed to your local Dollar Tree!
White Vinegar is used in a variety of DIY homemade cleaning products and is a pantry staple among many other helpful uses. If you don’t have white vinegar in your home or want to reduce the number of chemicals in your home, pick up a bottle of white vinegar from the Dollar Tree.
Like white vinegar, baking soda can be used as a natural cleaning substance and is an ingredient in many homemade cleaning product recipes. I recently used white vinegar and baking soda to clean the grout in our tile floors, which made them sparkling white again!
Cornstarch is another basic pantry staple that can be used to make your own Green and Chemical-free cleaning products.
Lemon juice is high in citric acid and is a great natural cleaner due to the antibacterial properties. You can find a bottle of Lemon Juice at your local Dollar Tree to mix up natural cleaning concoctions or use alone. If you have Lemon Essential Oils, even better!
Make a lemon-lime cleaning solution or use lime juice as a lemon substitute. Limes are also high in citric acid and great for cleaning. Limes also smell great and help drown out the smell of vinegar in homemade cleaning products.
What is distilled water? Well, it’s water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container. You can make your own distilled water but I found it’s easier to pick up a bottle from the Dollar Tree. If your local Dollar Tree doesn’t carry distilled water, you can find it at Target and Walmart for under $1 🙂
I use olive oil to make my own furniture polish and cast-iron pans. Olive oil is a pantry staple and can be used for cooking, skin care, home care, and more.
You’ll find this cleaning ingredient in the first-aid section at Dollar Tree. Rubbing Alcohol can be used to make your own cleaning products and it helps dissolve dirt and oils.
Use borax to clean your carpet, toilet, shower, laundry, and more! Refresh your linens with a homemade laundry soap using borax!
I bet you didn’t know you can use Epsom salts for cleaning (and that the dollar tree sells Epsom salts!). Epsom salts are used primarily for skin care and muscle soothing solutions but Epsom salts can also be used to clean pots and pans and makes a great tile and grout cleaner!
Empty Spray Bottles
Use the several different empty spray bottles found at the Dollar Tree to make your own cleaning products!

I use toothbrushes from the dollar tree when I need to clean tiny spaces (like grout) in my home. You can get a package of 3 toothbrushes from the Dollar Tree and use them specifically for cleaning.
Cotton Balls and Cotton Swabs
Cotton swabs (or Q0tips) are not just for cleaning out your ears. You can use them to clean your keyboard, remove lint from a hairdryer, detail your car, and more!
Use cotton balls with a drop of essential oils and place in drawers as a natural scent booster. Soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and dab on ink stained clothes to remove stains.

If you don’t have a dishwashing machine in your home, a dish drying rack from the Dollar Tree will help you keep dirty dishes separated from the clean ones while drying your clean dishes.
Toilet Bowl Brush
Toilet cleaning brushes can cost $5 or more at Target or Walmart so save yourself some money by buying a toilet bowl brush from the Dollar Tree!
A squeegee is good to have to clean shower doors, shower walls, windows, and more in your home.
Stainless Steel Scour Pads
Use the stainless steel pads from the Dollar Tree to clean pots and pans, clean grills, removes rust, and more!
A broom is a cleaning staple that can be used to clean the inside and outside of the home. Consider shopping at Dollar Tree for a broom the next time you need one!
If you use a broom, a dustpan is necessary. Some brooms come with a dustpan but the Dollar Tree sells brooms and dustpans separately.
The Dollar Tree has a couple of different types of mops and mop refills, depending on what you are looking for. There is a traditional string mop, a sponge mop, and refill wipes for Swiffer mops. If you are trying to be as green as possible, the string mop is probably the best option at the Dollar Tree.
Reusable gloves protect your hands while cleaning and the Dollar Tree sells several different kinds of reusable gloves.
