Home cleaning solutions from the store can slowly bite away at your wallet. There are a couple of home cleaning solutions you can make yourself, probably with ingredients you already have, and all you have to purchase is a spray bottle that cost less than a dollar (unless you already have one).
Mix: 1 cup white vinegar + 1 cup of water.
With this mix you can clean bathrooms, counter-tops, floors and other exterior surfaces. If you’re going to use this mixtures for tougher exterior surfaces, like shower walls, you can heat the homemade cleaning solution until it’s a little hot. This will help the solution be more effective in breaking down the residue.
Mix: make a paste of baking soda + water
This mix can be used for tougher grime and mildew. Apply this paste to an exterior surface and leave it there for 10-15 minutes. This will soften the soap scum and mildew, making it easier for you to wipe away.
Another thing you can use baking soda for is slow-running drains. Pour about 1/2 to ¾ of a cup of baking soda into the drain, along with just the right amount of water to wash the solution. After 2 or more hours, flush the drain with hot water. Not only will this clean the drain, but it will also deodorize it! Baking soda is always a miracle worker of sorts, and this is just touching the surface of what baking soda can do.
