When the kids were young the internet wasn’t big yet and honestly I can’t imagine finding more time to do extra. Even though homemade cleaners are super easy, it just seemed like more work to add to the day.
When we put new flooring in last month I decided I wasn’t buying chemicals that were going to be used most days of the week on my floors. Floor cleaner is really quick and inexpensive. I do recommend doing research on a few sites.
I found a good recipe and ended up dumping it out. I figured the vinegar issue was just me. Carrie talks about using vinegar in homemade cleaners on her post “dirty little secrets about homemade cleaners”. I am asthmatic and even though I cut the vinegar in half in the recipe it bothered me. Plus it stinks up my house. I’ll be following some of her tips to change things.
If you’ve been thinking of making your own cleaners I suggest reading about some of the things NOT to do in her post.
Do you have cleaner recipes you love?
