Save Money Make It Yourself

Off and on over the years, I’ve researched alternative cleaning solutions. There are so many cleaning products available, and I just can’t see the need for different cleansers for everything. Not only can it become costly, but it also takes up valuable space. For some reason it seems that Florida homes do not have the storage/closet space that homes up north have. And, after having children, I was concerned about the safety of all these chemicals in the home. So, I began collecting “recipes” for cleaning supplies. I know that my grandmother’s house was always clean and she never used any of these commercial cleaners that we have now. So, obviously there is another way!

 Not only can these save you money, but they are more likely to be healthier for our families and our environment. Most of them only take a few minutes to prepare, and then you’ll have them when you need them. Keep your spray bottles from when other cleaning supplies are used up, wash them out, and refill them with the homemade cleaner, using a permanent marker to write on the bottle so you know what’s in there.

 Here is a list of various cleaning “recipes” and the link to the recipe:
