5 Cleaners You Can Make With Household Products:
I found this website through Pintrest and thought this would be a perfect money saving tip. She gives you FIVE cleaning solutions, using products you have at home or that are relatively cheap. She explains it in a video also, which I love. I think she’s quite funny and her videos entertain me. Plus, I’m a huge clean-freak dork, so I LOVE learning how to clean certain things.
You can click here to see the video, and I’ve listed the cleaning solutions below. She explains them in better detail and why certain products (i.e. baking soda) work for certain household items.
*And no, she did not ask me to post this or give me money. She doesn’t even know who I am!
I actually don’t think cleaners are too expensive, but these are not only cheaper, but more eco-friendly too. Having baby stuff to clean all the time, I rather use homemade products than store bought so I know what is in them.
1. Glass Cleaner – 50% water + 50% vinegar
2. Disinfectant – 50% water + 50% rubbing alcohol
3. All Purpose Cleaner – 1-2 Tbsp dish liquid soap + bottle of water
4. Tub and Tile Cleaner/Degreaser – 1 cup vinegar + 1 cup dish liquid soap
5. Stain Remover – 1 cup hydrogen peroxide + 1 cup dish liquid soap
|I had all but the hydrogen peroxide. I added baking soda because it’s a great deodorizer! Did you know you can sprinkle this on your carpets and then vacuum it up to take out odors! Great for those with pets!
Also note, these products do not have the same shelf life, so make 1-2 months worth at a time. I’m going to buy 5 different bottles and label them with each cleaning solution. Making these products will put me more at ease than figuring out what is safe or not with a baby. Hope these save you some money! I will test these out this week and update if they do not work to my liking! First up, Beckham’s mirror in his playroom – I haven’t touched it in fear of putting Windex on it. Needless to say, it’s quite dirty!
