Cleaning on a Dime

What?  You are tired of paying all that money for expensive household cleaners?  Well don't.  There are plenty of cheap, cheap, cheap cleaning solutions.  You can start with vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice.  In my suggested reading box to the side of the blog, you will see books listed, one of which is all about using vinegar in your home.  It's a great little book that will save you lots.  Another fantastic cleaning product is Basic H by Shaklee. You will read a lot about the uses of Basic H anytime you look through an Amish home remedy or farm remedy book.  They use it a great deal for all sorts of things.  I bought one 16 oz bottle of the concentrated Basic H.  With it, I have made up window cleaner, all-purpose cleaner and degreaser (each 16 oz) many times over - I purchased that one single 16 oz bottle over a YEAR ago and still have enough to make many more bottles of all the above listed cleaners.  It breaks down into pennies per bottle for all the cleaners I have gotten out of it.  If you want to know more about Shaklee (they carry tons of 'green' products) and Basic H (which is safe to use around your children and pets), then go to  I highly recommend their products to anyone.
