Make Your own Household Cleaners: Lots of Recipes

1laund I was thrilled, a friend showed me several ways to make my own cleaners.  Thanks Melitsa!  These cleaners are biodegradable, made with less harsh chemicals (most you can eat!), and is a ton cheaper!  I will definitely be making my own batches in the next week or two!

  • Hot Water
  • Vinegar
  • Baking Soda
  • Clear Dish Soap
  • Fels Naptha Bar
