Did you know it’s way, Way, WAY cheaper to make your own cleaners? I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, but it seriously is! Not only is it WAY cheaper, but it cuts a LOT of chemicals out of your life. Do you need chemicals to obtain clean? NO! Seriously, NO! There I’ll say it one more time for emphasis: NO!
Here are my homemade cleaners. It’s super-duper nice that they are basically made from all the same ingredients. And most are so easy even my kids can mix them up when needed. Here is my disclaimer: There are not MY recipes. I’ve researched all over the internet to find ones that I liked using. With that said, if I have the site I got them from, it’s listed, but if it’s not, it’s so far gone I can’t remember. Also, with my trial and errors and notes, any original recipe may have been altered. But these are the concoctions that I currently use! 🙂
- A great Dishwasher powder soap recipe im currently using is
4 cups washing soda
4 cups borax
1 cup sea salt
mix well and store in a 6 cup air tight container use approx 2 tablespoons with each load. The salt acts as a scrubbing agent.
ALWAYS use vinegar in your rinse aid 🙂
Use like you would Comet.
