Frugal Cleaning Tips: The 2 Items You Need

Frugalites, you do NOT have to spend a small fortune to stock a cleaning kit or cleaning cabinet to keep your home clean. :) In reality, there are very few products you really need. Today, I'll tell you about my two absolute FAVORITE multi-purpose cleaning products that I'll bet you already have in your home:

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar

Baking soda is a cleaning powerhouse! Use it to:

  • Replace harsh commercial powdered cleansers
  • Reduce odors (simply place in a small open container and it will help to neutralize and remove odors naturally)
  • Reduce odors in kitty litter boxes - simply sprinkle into fresh litter every time you've changed the cat litter

Vinegar is another must-have for frugal cleaners. It can:

  • Replace all-purpose cleaners! Just pour 1 part plain white vinegar into a clean plastic spray bottle. Add 4-5 parts tap water and shake well. For a little extra cleaning power you can add 1 or 2 drops of natural liquid dishwashing soap.
  • Get your sink's taps and faucets shining - use it straight for extra power

These are just a few ways that you can use baking soda and vinegar to clean your home. For dozens of extra (free) uses, visit:
