Green and Frugal Homemade Cleaning Products
Did you know that homemade cleaning products will get your house as clean as commercial brand cleaners? In addition, you will avoid unwanted toxins and potentially save some serious money. In fact, I am willing to bet you have nearly everything you need to get your house looking great right now.
Here are a couple simple examples of how baking soda can replace expensive store-bought cleaners. Use baking soda to clean the counter tops in your kitchen or bathroom. By making a paste from baking soda and water, you create a very powerful cleaner.
Try adding baking soda to a bowl in any room in your house to remove unpleasant odors. You can even sprinkle it on your carpets and then vacuum it up minutes later. This works very well if you have pets and want to get rid of the smell they can leave behind.
In general, homemade products cost a mere fraction of the price associated with their chemical based cousins. And they do a great job. Industry estimates put the cost of homemade cleaning products at about 10 percent of their commercial counterparts.
Let us put it another way. To do comparable work, for the $100 you spend a year on store-bought cleaning products, homemade cleaning products will do it for just $10. I may not be a math genius, but I can figure that one out for sure.
There are a number of natural cleaning products on the market today. If you don?t have the time to make your own homemade cleaning products there are lots of options out there. Stay green to get it clean, you will be happy that you did.
