Are your sick and tired of having to spend too much of your money on cleaning products? Yes, it is something that is bothering all of us. We would all much rather spend our hard earned money on something we enjoy. Why not save yourself some more money by cutting back on the money you spend on cleaning products, and buy yourself a trip to the spa place? If you do not know how to lower your cleaning budget, this article will help you.
Have you ever asked yourself the question why you buy all of those cleaning products when you can actually clean much more of your home with just 2-3 of them? Instead, you probably have a cupboard filled with cleaning products. Well, I am here to tell you that you can actually save a lot of money and lower your monthly cleaning budget a lot, by simply making some of the cleaning products on your own, and buy as fewer cleaning products as possible. For example, you can always make yourself a dish washing soap or a glass cleaner, but those things are cheap anyway and do not run out that often. You can still buy some cleaning products but not all of them.
You can take the time to make some cleaning products on your own, all you will have to spend money on, are some of the ingredients, but once you have the ingredients you will be able to make yourself the cleaning products for a long time.
For example, stop spending money on simple floor cleaners that are way too small and way too expensive to begin with. Get a 2-gallon bucket, fill with water, mix 1 cup distilled white vinegar and ½ cup of liquid castile soap, or a hand soap (but it will be more expensive), and if you castile soap is not scented you can add 10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice. And there you have it – floor cleaners that you did not spend 10 bucks on. Quick, simple and cheap!
Washing our dishes is an important chore because the microbes and bacteria of the food leftovers should be cleaned ideally. We all think that our dishwashers are doing fine enough job, but what about if you improve the quality of its job? PerfectCleaners W6 are advising you to make your homemade dishwasher detergent, this way you will be sure that your dishwasher and dishes are perfectly cleaned, even without the use of harsh chemicals.
For a dishwasher detergent, all you are going to need is mix 2 cups of borax and 2 cups of washing soda, and then of, course add 20-30 drops of essential oil of your choice. Mix the ingredients and use about 2 tbsp per wash. And there you have a dishwasher detergent that will last you a long long time, and you will not have to run to the store every two weeks for more.
Some of the most expensive products in stores are antibacterial sprays and disinfectants. Here is a recipe that will give you an efficient disinfectant, without having to spend a lot of money. To make yourself an antibacterial spray all you are going to need is water, 2 -3 tbsp of liquid castile soap and 10-15 drops of essential oils (tea tree for the disinfecting part, and some other one for the scent of your choice).
Mix all of the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray and let sit for 15 minutes, then wipe down with a damp rag.
And what is more, using the ingredients listed above, you can make yourself many other cleaning products. Give it a try and you will be surprised how much money you will have left, once you stop spending them on cleaning products. Good luck!
