You CAN Make Your Own Household Cleaners

If I can make my own household cleaners, then you can too! I should be using more homemade cleaners than I do because they're SO simple to make, good for the environment, and they save you money <----yay for that one!

Here are a few links to natural/homemade cleaner tips I've shared before...

Shower cleaning:  Homemade Shower Cleaner

Oven cleaning: Natural Oven Cleaner
Vinegar is a great thing to have on hand for cleaning. Using it can be as simple as diluting some distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle and cleaning your kitchen counters with it! For more great ideas on how to use vinegar, check out the Big List of Creative Uses For Vinegar over at The Frugal Girls.

I also use baking soda and vinegar to clean my drains. Basically, you put 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, then slowly pour 1/2 cup or so of vinegar, which will cause it to foam up. Cover the drain and wait about 5 minutes. Then you flush it with a gallon of boiling water. Definitely helps though it may take more than one try if you have a drain that's really clogged.

  1. I make my own window cleaner for water, vinegar, and dish soap. I make my own stain pre-treater too. For all purpose cleaner, I buy a bottle of Mr. Clean or Lysol concentrate, whichever I can get cheap on sale or with coupon (or both) and mix that with water in a spray bottle. I use this for my floors too. One $1.50-2 bottle lasts me all year. I do want to start making my own tub and shower cleaner once my current stuff runs out.

  2. Those all sound great - thanks for sharing!
