I don’t love cleaning. OK, I kind of despise it. But what I always hated more was the idea that I was using chemicals in my home that were possibly damaging to my family and/or the environment. And the fumes just give me a headache.
So, years ago, I swapped out some of the cleaners I regularly bought for natural ones I mixed up at home. I used ingredients that could often be bought for a dollar or less… and were already in my cabinets anyway. Since then, there has been an explosion of natural cleaning brands on the market. Some are great, but they tend to be pricey. I find that my homemade cleaners work as well, if not better, than many of them.
