DIY Bathroom or Kitchen Cleaner

Ok guys. This is quite possibly the cheapest and easiest of all my homemade products so far. I’m so excited to share this with you.

What you need:

1/2 Cup White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Borax powder (found in laundry isle, hopefully you already have this if you’re making your own detergents)

Mix your ingredients in a pitcher and add enough water to make 1/2 gallon. Stir. Pour it into spray bottles to use and store.

Does it Save Money:

Um…a lot. This is roughly 10 cents for a 32 oz bottle. A 32 oz bottle of Lysol spray cleaner is about $4 or maybe $2-3 if you buy it on sale. 10 cents is a significant savings.

Is it Quick and Easy:

Super easy. Pour and mix. Done.

Is it Effective:

Sure. Seems to be. I don’t know really, but I didn’t really “know” the Lysol was effective either. There is a vinegar smell when you first spray it but as soon as it dries the smell disappears. Everything looks clean. Since I haven’t figured out how to make a homemade germ testing kit, I’m just assuming it works. I’m comfortable with this for general use. The next time we get hit with a stomach bug I may break out the emergency supply of clorox wipes – but I would probably do that regardless.

I love the idea of spending pennies for something I used to pay dollars. This product definitely meets my requirements homemade cleaning products. And, there’s just something satisfying in making it yourself.

What homemade cleaning products have you tried to make?
