Let’s face it and get the ugly idea out in the open.
Your home needs to be cleaned. On a regular basis. For some people that is every week, for others it is every two weeks and for others it is only when company comes over.
Honestly, cleaning the house isn’t as hard as some may think and with natural cleaners it makes it so much easier.
No more spending $10 a bottle for cleaners that say they are naturally sourced. Nope, no more.
Did you know you can make a gallon of all purpose cleaners for about two to three dollars? A gallon, yes you read that right.
4 Natural Cleaners Your Home Needs
Baking soda is amazing when you need that deep down clean. Or fresh elimination of odor. But I am sure when you think of baking soda you think of a mixing bowl or the fridge, am I right?
So you have tile grim you need to clean. Mix a paste of water and baking soda. Using a rag or toothbrush apply to the area in question and rinse with water.
Does your garbage or compost bin need refreshing? Add a sprinkle of baking soda directly to the bin for a great biodegradable air freshener.
I don’t know about where you live but the average price of a bottle of natural cleaner where we live runs about seven dollars and it might just be enough to clean the house twice top to bottom.
And I know seven dollars in not a lot but I can buy a gallon of vinegar for way less. Add in some water and essential oils and I have the best all purpose cleaner a frugal mom could want.
I use a 50/50 water, vinegar mix and add in essential oils to help with the cleaning process and to make the smell more pleasant.
You can use this all purpose cleaner on most surfaces.
