So I have been looking at natural products and how I can use them to help my family save money and for our health. I started finding all sorts of neat and cheap ways to use things like vinegar, backing soda, lemon juice etc... around the house and for our bodies. I was pretty excited as I went through all the information about these types of cleaners and quickly became convinced of their value. I just wanted to share what I found regarding using natural cleaners.
Here are some benefits of using natural cleaners:
•Less packaging waste. You’re not buying new bottles over and over.
•Less expensive. You probably have some in your kitchen right now, so you wouldn't have to go buy a seperate cleaner
•Less harmful (often not harmful at all) to humans, animals, and the earth.
•Less noxious home smell. Homemade natural cleaners always smell better than store bought. Well, except vinegar, that can be worked around somewhat by using Lavender essential oil and lemon juice, or I have boiled Cinnamon and let it sit where the smell was strong and "steam" the smell out.
I have gathered a list here of some sites that give information on how to use and make your own Natural Cleaning Products;
- 131 Uses for Vinegar
- Make Your Own Non-Toxic Cleaning Kit
