When it comes to the world of green cleaners, none of us are strangers to the idea. We've made our own, we've seen them in stores and chances are there are both versions sitting under your kitchen cabinets right now. Which do you prefer?

Although there's no contesting the idea that homemade cleaners are usually less expensive, there is something oddly comforting about using something pre-made from a bottle. If the company is green in their production and you're ok with their methods, there shouldn't be any shame in picking up cleaners from a retailer — so which do you choose?

Do you find it easier to make your own, or is your time better spent chasing after the kids and saving the laundry soap making to those with a less busy schedule?
