Inside: Ditch the chemical cleaners and check out these 7 amazing cleaners you can make yourself. They work great and will save you money.
About 5 years ago I really got into making my own cleaners. I started with my favorite granite cleaner and that worked so well I just kept on making more and more cleaners myself. Not only is it extremely easy to make your own cleaners, but you can save yourself a lot of money too.
One of the things that I was most surprised about was that the cleaners that I made myself worked better than the store-bought. I thought that the cleaners wouldn’t work as well or I would have to spend more time cleaning with homemade cleaners. But that isn’t the case at all! So if you want to save money or just make more natural cleaners check out these cleaners you can make yourself.
