Homemade Cleaners

I'm going to let you in on my secret for cheap homemade cleaners!


Yep its Vinegar!! I know what you're thinking too-"That stuff stinks!" I used to think so to but I've got used to it! And really the smell fades just a little while after you use it. Here are some of the many uses of vinegar:
  • Mix with water to form a 3:1 (water:vinegar). You can get spray bottles for less than a dollar to store this in.  It makes a  great all purpose cleaner. I use it for about everything!
  • Pour a little baking soda in your drains or garbage disposal. Then pour vinegar over it  :) Let sit about 5 min; rinse with warm water. This cleans out minor buildup in pipes and gets rid of odor! This would be something great for your kids to do!   
  • use 3/4 in place of fabric softener-I've never tried this before but heard it works well
  • pour vinegar in bowl and let sit overnight to get rid of odors in the air
  • Check out http://www.vinegartips.com/ for 1001 uses for vinegar!


  1. I too use vinegar to clean. I don't mind the smell and it does a good job. If you have an ant problem--wipe your counters with vinegar and it discourages the ant infestation!

  2. pour a little vinegar in with your jeans when washing and it keeps the color from fading. most especially do this as soon as you buy them and before you wear them.
