Everyday Cheapskate: Five Homemade Natural Cleaners That Perform Better than Expensive Brands
Why bother? Why go to the trouble of making your own cleaning products when buying commercial products is so much easier? Making your own natural cleaning products at home has so many advantages, and they include time, money and perhaps even health. Take these four reasons:
--It takes as little as 30 seconds to mix up any number of homemade natural cleaning products.
--Homemade cleaners give you complete control over the ingredients. Conventional cleaning products often contain toxic chemicals, harsh smells, unpleasant residues or allergy-inducing irritants.
--Making your own cleaning products is super cheap because they use simple everyday ingredients -- things you may have already in your pantry.
--Homemade cleaners using natural ingredients perform as well as, if not better than, expensive name-brand cleaners.
Come to think of it, I can't really think of any valid reasons not to make our own household cleaning products.
