Making Your Own Cleaning Solutions

While you’re working through those bills here is a great money saving tip: Making your own cleaning solutions at home. Most cleaning supplies can be costly and can also contain harsh chemicals that can be dangerous for little ones and animals. (Always test cleaners or new ideas to small less trafficked areas). So here are a few to get you started:


Carpet Freshener: All you have to do is use good ole baking soda. Sprinkle the baking soda directly onto your dry carpet and let it sit for about 15 minutes before vacuuming.

Glass Cleaner: Mix all ingredients into spray bottle and switch out that windex
  • 1 part water
  • 1 part vinegar
  • 1 part alcohol
Drain Clearing Solution: Pour all ingredients into drain and let sit 5-10 minutes then run hot water. (This can be repeated if needed).
  • 1 ½ cups vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
This mix can also be used as toilet bowl cleaner: Pour vinegar into toilet bowl let stand about 20 minutes then pour baking soda over scrub brush and clean.
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • ½ cup baking soda
