Making your own DIY homemade natural cleaners isn’t hard and can save you a lot of money!
Conventional cleaners often contain ingredients that can be harmful. Many of the ingredients are endocrine disrupters, which can cause adverse reproductive, neurological developmental and immune effects. These risks are especially high during prenatal and early postnatal development.
Making your own cleaners allows you to have control over the ingredients. It can also save you money. Buying the ingredients may cost a bit in the beginning but once you have the supplies on hand you can make these cleaners for less than you are spending now, in most cases. If you plan to make them often check out bulk ingredients on Amazon to save a little money.
There are many great homemade cleaners out there to try. Pinterest has endless options. These are just a few that use really good ingredients and are great products.
