Homemade Green Cleaner Reviews
(page 1 of 5)
During the warm weather, when I have windows open in every room, I feel OK using cheap, heavy-duty traditional cleaners. When the windows close for the season, though, I usually turn to store-bought “green” cleaners. For the most part, I’m happy with them. They work well. They’re everywhere. They’re not that expensive. Still, I can’t help but wonder: Did I just pay four bucks for a bottle of diluted vinegar (which I can get for 70 cents a quart)? Could I make my own cleaners for a fraction of the price?
I asked Jennifer Cottell, a local mom and trustee and legal advisor for the Holistic Moms Network, for the recipes to her best DIY green cleaners and put them to the real-mom test (Cottell’s a real mom, but she’s also really dedicated). I then rated them on a scale of 1-3:
- 1=It’s easy. It’s cheap. It works. Do it!
- 2=Worth a try
- 3=In my next life
