Both boys have been sick, I think I mentioned it in my last post but it sucks. Oli has been projectile vomiting, like Exorcist vomit. Seriously it’s not a fun week in our house at all. So today, I pulled my hair back, turned on some gangster rap and I’m scrubbing the house from top to bottom. Writing this blog and drinking coffee is my halfway done break. I still have to tackle the bathrooms. Recently I canceled my subscription to an expensive all natural cleaning product box and decided to give make your own cleaners a try. I actually love it. I do miss getting the cute box on my door once a month, but this is saving us so much money.
So this is what is in my all natural DIY non-toxic green cleaning kit.
Why Green Clean?
- Safe for your family and pets
- Saves you money
- Highly effective
- Environmentally friendly
While I’m at it, I’m cleaning up our cleaning cabinet. I bought this cute bottle on Amazon with recipes for natural cleaners that I love. You don’t need the bottle, you can use any glass bottle, just clearly mark it CLEANING Solution and keep it away from your kids. The bottle has the recipes on it and it’s convenient for me. I like just pouring the solutions in and going. I feel like a chemist too, anything to make cleaning my house more interesting right?
