03 May Spring Cleaning Made Easy with DIY Products
Spring is all about renewal. For a lot of people, this means clearing out the closets and deep cleaning their space. Store bought cleaning products are expensive, full of chemicals, and the harsh odors can be overwhelming. The good news is, you can DIY your own products with just a few ingredients!
Keep it simple:
More and more people are using natural products; some are taking it one step further and making the products themselves. Most DIY cleaning products can be made with just a few ingredients. White vinegar, water, and baking soda are all you need for most of these products found on Pinterest. Then, you can add your own twist by adding a few drops of the essential oils of your choice. Clean your glass without leaving streaks, scrub your tub without the offensive smell of bleach, clean your counter tops without the residue often left behind by traditional cleaners. Everything from all purpose cleaners to air freshener can be made in a few simple steps and at a fraction of the cost of traditional store bought versions.
Cleaning your place without emptying your wallet:
I remember the first time I bought cleaning supplies. I was shocked by how quickly it added up. Also, the aisle immediately gave me a headache. Instead of spending all your money on chemicals, pick up a jug of white vinegar, some baking soda, a few essential oils and go to town. For a clean, fresh smell, try citrus oils such as lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Following a few simple recipes, you can create your own blends to keep your place fresh and clean.
Cleaning the air and keeping it natural:
When it comes to clearing the air, plants are the way to go. They are natural filters, they’re beautiful, they’re trendy and affordable. Plants will not only keep your air clean, they also add a welcoming vibe to your place.
So, instead of sinking all your money into cleaners full of chemicals, try experimenting with your own recipes. Your home and your wallet will thank you.
