DIY Homemade Cleaners

We spend a lot of money each year on household cleaners, and it's most likely because we don't realize that it's so easy to make them ourselves. The packaging and chemicals are extremely wasteful and it honestly only takes a few minutes to create homemade alternatives!

The average household cleaner purchased in the store is roughly between $4.00-$8.00 and of course we buy a different bottle for each part of the house we want to clean. That equals a lot of money we waste each year and it's so simple to make these at home.

For example, if you want a simple antibacterial spray to kill germs just combine water and lavender. Lavender has a high concentration of linalool, which is a natural antibacterial. Lavender is so easy to come by and it's an all natural ingredient. Even just a small bottle will provide you with enough to have antibacterial spray on hand for years.

Macheesmo gives the directions for making four different household cleaners that are so simple. For about $30.00 you can have over a years supply of cleaning solutions that you made yourself!
