Making your own cleaning products is an incredible way to save money and ensure you are dramatically reducing toxins in your home. I use a combination of homemade and store-bought products to clean my house. There are many wonderful environmentally friendly products available to buy, with heightened awareness from savvy consumers environmentally safe and toxin-free products are popping up everywhere.
One of the homemade items I use is an all-purpose lemon cleaning spray. It’s simple to make, it’s insanely cost effective and it cleans like a dream! I wanted to share it with you this month because it’s just lovely and I know it works.
