Our current climate has created a shortage of home cleaning supplies from antibacterial wipes to soap. Not to mention, commercial household cleaning supplies contain harmful chemicals. Making homemade household cleaners is a great way to not only live on less, but save money and the environment! Plus, most homemade cleaning solutions use essentials that you probably already have at home, so there's no need to run to the store.

Natural cleaning products will not harm the environment and it's important to make sure we're taking care of our planet  while we're caring for ourselves.
