Go Green! Time to Clean.

It’s that time of year for spring cleaning season. I always love to give my home a good cleaning every year. I also like to do it with as little chemicals as possible. (I have a bleach free home) Below I’ve listed some homemade cleaning supplies that will help cut back on the chemicals you use to clean with, and also help cut cleaning supply costs.
Air Freshener: use a 16 oz spray bottle and put 1/2 water and 1/2 liquid fabric softener in and start spraying. It is safe to spray on fabric, I spray my curtains, the couches, bedspreads, pillow, etc
Disinfecting Wipes: Cut paper towels in half width ways, add to a container with 3 cups of Lysol. Seal tight.
Floor Cleaner: 1 cup white vinegar & 1 gallon hot water mix in the bucket you use to wash your floor.
Window Washer: Combine a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water into a spray bottle. Use newspaper to wipe windows instead of paper towels
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Remember science class? Add 1 tablespoon vinegar to your toilet bowl, them sprinkle with baking soda. The chemical reaction will clean you bowl no problem.
