The Benefits of Organic and Natural Cleansers

A couple of years ago, I wrote about some simple recipes for natural homemade cleansers. These are some very simple concoctions that you can make with ingredients like baking soda, white vinegar, and essential oils that will clean and disinfect your home for a fraction of the cost of commercial preparations.

I started using these recipes several years ago primarily to save money. I started to resent the fact that a tub of cleaning wipes was $3.00 and a bottle of tub cleaner was $4.00.

    Hi. Really enjoyed your great tips on the page. I’ve acutally gone over to using natural cleansers a long time ago. Vinegar, tea tree oil are also great for cleaning. For a long time I’ve also been makeing my own skin care products and I’ve noticed that my skin has acutally improved. This is because most skin care products and makeup is full of toxic chemicals. Probably natural makeup products aren’t any cheaper than the usual makeup you can buy at the store, but it’s much better for your skin. Thanks again for the great post!

    I too use, homemade shall we call them, cleaners mostly for the benefit of my allergies which can’t handle the artificial scents in store cleaners. It hasn’t hurt the pocketbook either!
