Before running to the store to buy the latest and greatest in green home cleaning products, consider that the greenest, safest cleaning products can be made by you. With simple everyday items and some reclaimed spray bottles, you can make your house squeaky clean without spending a lot of money.
We recommend mixing your cleaners in reclaimed and cleaned Windex bottles, but if you don’t have any, you can find plastic spray bottles at your local Dollar Tree for, you guessed it, $1. Also, save yourself some money and visit your local dollar store for all of your cleaning supplies, from dusters, buckets, and sponges, they will have everything you need for a $1. You can’t beat that.
Mix one cup of borax in one gallon of hot water. This also makes a great all-purpose kitchen cleaner. Simply fill a cleaned and reclaimed Windex bottle with the mixture and spray away.
