So I will give you a few links to the recipes I used and then some tips.
All Purpose cleaner
Nasty Germ Killer
Homemade "clorox" wipes
Whole bunch of earth-friendly and non-toxic recipes
The cheapest place to buy castille soap (that I found) is Trader Joe's (8.99 for 32 oz), otherwise try amazon...
You can get tea tree oil at walmart if you can't find it anywhere else.
The cheapest place to get Borax is Target (cheaper than walmart even!)
DON'T waste your time with cheap spray bottles (like the ones at walmart). They don't work with these homemade solutions! I just reused an old spray bottle. You can also buy them on Amazon:)
I bought some microfiber cleaning cloths at the dollar store which I have been putting on my swiffer instead of buying their cloths. I just spray the floor with my all-purpose cleaner and then use my microfiber swiffer to clean the linoleum. so easy, so fast!
So the funniest thing about making all this stuff is that I really don't like cleaning in the first place. Everyone said I was crazy for giving myself extra work by making them, but I've been much more excited about cleaning ever since!
