Do you hate spending all your hard earned money on smelly cleaning products?
I do! I've been in search of great substitutes that I can make from ingredients I already have in my pantry. And I've found them.
I've actually had a list of homemade products for awhile and I have made and used some of them. Unfortunately I still have so many store bought products that need to be used up first. I have made the ones I listed and I really love them. And I will post more once I've tried them. I won't post any products that I haven't tried.
Even though I still have quite a lot of store bought cleaning products I still want to share the list of products along with the ingredients and measurements to my fellow readers. So here's the list, enjoy!
½ cup vinegar
¼ cup baking soda (or 2 tsp borax powder)
½ gallon (2 liters) hot water (use hot water so the powder dissolve)
Mix all ingredients together.
I put mine in a spray bottle and use with a microfiber cloth.
I use my mixture in the kitchen for the most part.
This cleaner works well on windows and mirrors too.
Mix equal parts borax powder and washing soda. (Takes 1-2 tsp of each)
Increase the washing soda if you have hard water.
Moisten oven surfaces with sponge and water.
¾ cup baking soda
Mix together to make a thick paste (I mix in a bowl for the 1-time use).
Spread paste throughout the oven interior (avoid bare metal and any openings).
Let sit overnight.
Remove with spatula and wipe clean.
Rub gently with fine steel wool for tough spots.
So here's a few cleaners you'd find in my cleaning collection. I hope you find these helpful and useful in your own home.
Stay tuned for more household cleaners that will be coming your way in the coming weeks and months.
