While January may be over, there is still time to give 2016 a fresh start. For the past two weeks, the blog has been full of all-natural cleaning recipes. These recipes were designed to help eliminate some of the chemicals found in store bought cleaners from your home. These Soap Queen recipes contain common ingredients that you may already have in your pantry, including baking soda and vinegar.
If you’re interested in creating cleaning products but aren’t sure where to start, the Top DIY Cleaning Ingredients post highlights my must-haves. These ingredients include essential oils, washing soda and salts. All these ingredients can be used in a wide variety of projects.
