Cleaning House: DIY Cleaning Products

Whew, what a weekend! My in-laws came down from North Carolina this past weekend.  My youngest brother-in-law, Sam, just finished his freshman year of college and he is going to spend the next few weeks working with Andy and Matt (my oldest brother-in-law).  It was great to have a full house, the cats enjoyed all the extra lap space, we watched movies, did a little shopping and had our 4th of July cookout a few days early.  Sadly, the parents-in-laws are on their way back up north and the rest of us are office bound.  Except for Andy, he has the week off so he is running errands and straightening the house so he can enjoy the rest of his time off later on.

Since we were expecting a house full of visitors, Andy and I spent Friday night and Saturday morning in a cleaning frenzy.  After handling the arsenal of cleaning fluids required for mopping, scrubbing and polishing, both of our hands are a little worse for the wear. So I decided to do a little research into DIY cleaning products. This is what I’ve come up with so far.

All Purpose Cleaner from Anonymous Was a Woman

Dish Soap by Tried & True

Liquid Hand Soap from The Farmer’s Nest

Laundry Detergent from Yellow Brick Home

Obviously these are not “all natural”, but at least this way I know exactly what and how much of something I am exposing my hands to. Added bonus, the cost vs. volume on these products is staggering, you’ll be saving yourself some serious money. And with most of us being on a budget, we can always use a few extra pennies.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
