One of the best ways to save both the environment and my budget was to save on household cleaners. I have written before about using vinegar and lemons both as cleaning agents. Today as we think of ways to save I wanted to share some recipes that make sense and save cents as well.

A Great All Purpose Cleaner

  • one part water
  • one part white vinegar

A Good Non Abrasive Cleaner

  • one part lemon juice
  • one part baking soda

Make a paste and use and sponge to clean.
