DIY All-Natural Cleaning Kit

loading...

I’ve been making my own natural cleaning formulas for a few years now. Commercial cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that irritate my skin, burn my eyes, sting my lungs, and poison the natural waterways and wildlife I cherish. It feels great to banish these icky toxins from my home for good. Plus, making my own cleaning solutions is really easy, inexpensive, kinda fun, and much healthier for me and the environment.
