Home Health Tips That Won’t Send You to the Dry Cleaners – Part 1

Going green will not only save your wallet, but it will save the planet! It can feel overwhelming to learn about the rainforests disappearing, overflowing landfills, and toxic chemicals whirling about in once pristine waters; we are often left thinking, what can I do? The problems seem so huge! But you can do something and that is to commit to a healthy home environment. The good news is that this can be done quite easily and inexpensively.

You have probably seen environment-friendly cleaners, but after checking out the price you may have placed it gently back upon the shelf. Good news! You can make your own cleaners – not only are they easy to make, but they use ingredients that you will not need to go to the end of the earth to find. In my book, “How to Beat a Tough Economy: A Mom’s Survival Guide to Living on a Tight Budget,” I share several recipes for all purpose cleaners, dishwasher detergent, drain cleaners as well as laundry soap for both front or top load and front loader machines.

Here is a simple window cleaner recipe to get you started:

  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 2 drops dishwashing liquid or castile soap (I like Dr. Bonner’s)

Add ingredients to a clean spray bottle and you will have streak-free windows, without the use of any chemicals.

There truly is no reason whatsoever to waste your money on cleaning products. Nor do you need to rely on chemical concoctions to keep your home clean! Do you have any clean cleaning tips? Please share them with us!
