It’s no secret that creating your own household cleaning solutions can save you lots of money, but how do you make them? Do-it-yourself cleaners are also great because they don’t have the harmful chemicals that store-bought cleaners tend to. As an added bonus, if you make your own cleaning solutions with things you already have on hand, you’re not going to have to worry about running out!
