Going Green With Your Spring Cleaning: DIY Cleaning Agents
If you were excited about making your own dusting cloths, wait till you see this! I can’t believe how easy it was to remove some of our staple cleaning products and replace them with 2 spray bottles and a jar of dusting cloths!
For both of these cleaning agents, I picked up inexpensive iGo spray bottles at Walmart for a $1 each. I decided to get 2 sets of a few different colors for each room in the house that would need them.
First up is the All Purpose Cleaner that has now replaced Fantastik, AJAX and Soft Scrub. I can use this cleaner for our counter tops, toilets, showers and floors. I felt like a chemist making this one because the baking soda fizzed when it was poured into the bowl of vinegar.
Mix the vinegar, baking soda and hot water together into a bowl. Cut the lemon and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Then cut the lemon into slices and throw them in the bowl as well. Once the water is cool, pour the mixture into your spray bottle(s). You can also put the lemon slices in as well.
Then I moved onto the window cleaner. I was very excited about this recipe because it called for dish soap which meant I could bust out my Meyer’s which I love! This recipe has now replaced our Windex and will be used to clean all of our windows, mirrors and the glass in our stall shower.
