Four Cheap & Easy to Make Household Cleaners – You’ll Thank Me Later
I told you that Pinterest is my newest addiction. It really has become a staple of my day to day life. Before, if I was bored in line at the grocery store, I would surf Facebook. Now I surf Pinterest in hopes of finding the next “Why didn’t I think of that?!” moment!
I have had several of those moments lately while I’ve been on Pinterest. In fact I started a new board on my wall just for cleaning tips, tricks, and DIYs. I thought I would share with you some of the great things that I have found.
There are several recipes for this on Pinterest, but when I made mine, I went with the powder detergent rather than the liquid. When I made my first batch (which I still have enough for about another 10 loads of laundry) I used Baking Soda instead of Washing Soda. They were both in the aisle with the Borax, and I just wasn’t paying attention. After a couple of loads, I realized what I had done, so I got the Washing Soda. It was added to the mix that I already had & then I added more Borax to maintain the proper Washing Soda/Borax ratio. The Baking Soda doesn’t hurt anything and I am getting GREAT results now.
This one is super simple! And odds are you already have the ingredients around the house! A little baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and blue dawn dish soap… A paste of these 3 things and you can remove just about ANYthing from a white Tshirt. Even the icky yellow underarm stains will go away!
I haven’t made this myself yet, but the reviews are great! Basically, it’s water, Borax, vinegar, and a little essential oil of your choice to make it smell good. EASY! and super CHEAP! Oh! yeah! and it’s safe & non-toxic, and environmentally friendly because it’s made with natural ingredients.
There is nothing worse than scrubbing a dirty tub on your hands and knees. It makes your back hurt. It makes your knees hurt. It makes your arms hurt. Wouldn’t it be great if you could spray, leave, wipe & be done? Then you should try mixing up a batch of tub cleaner. All that’s in it is Dawn dish soap & vinegar. That’s it. Easy! Put them in a spray bottle, shake & spray. Come back an hour or so later & wipe all the yuck away… even the soap scum!
