Switching out your cleaning supplies can at first seem daunting. I am finding that it is one of the easiest and least expensive steps in detoxing our home. I decided to take it one small step at a time, replacing cleaning supplies as we use up the items we previously had. This significantly cut down the “initial investment” we would have faced had we replaced everything all at once.
Simple DIY cleaning solutions are more effective and longer lasting than most store-bought solutions. Can we throw up all the praise hands for less trips to the store, walking in for one thing and out with an entire buggy full of items we don’t need?! I’m looking at you, Target. I love this all purpose cleaner for just about everything! It is super easy to make, and inexpensive to refill!
