These frugal homemade cleaner recipes make it easy to ditch the harsh chemicals and save money.
How many times has this happened to you? You’re at the store doing your grocery shopping when you pass the cleaning aisle and realize that you are completely out of your favorite non-toxic cleaner.
Now here’s where the dilemma begins…
As you stroll down the aisle you already know they won’t have your favorite cleaner since the store doesn’t carry it, so all you can do is hope to find a similar cleaner at a fair price. But just as you expected there’s only one cleaner on the shelf that’s acceptable to you at an outrageous regular price. Sure there are other cleaners on sale – the ones with all the harsh chemicals that you try so hard to avoid.
So what do you choose? Do you stray from your frugal ways and splurge on the non-toxic cleaner? Or do you throw everything you know about unnecessary harsh chemicals down the drain and go for what’s on sale?
Frugal Homemade Cleaner Recipes
Luckily, there are a few super easy ways to never put yourself in this position again. These frugal homemade cleaner recipes make it easy to ditch the chemicals and save money. Here are recipes for two of the most commonly used cleaners so you can make them yourself 😉
DIY Glass Cleaner
Let’s start with a simple glass cleaner. Rinse out an empty glass cleaner bottle or grab one at the dollar store and combine these ingredients to make a cleaner that will work just as good as any that you can find in the store. You’ll need…
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of white vinegar
2 to 3 drops dish soap.
Just combine those in your empty spray bottle and that’s it…you have yourself some homemade glass cleaner!
DIY All-Purpose Cleaner
Another one of my favorite homemade household products that is essential to your cleaning arsenal is all-purpose spray. For this one you’ll just need…
2 cups of water
½ cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon dish soap
1 teaspoon baking soda
Just mix in a spray bottle and you’re all set. Easy peasy, right?!

What if I just don’t have time?
Let’s be honest…even though you may love mixing up your own natural cleaners, sometimes it’s just hard to find the time to get everything done that we want to do. That’s why it’s wonderful to have a backup…a place that sells fantastic, non-toxic products which smell amazing on standby for when you have no time to mix up a new batch of cleaners due to a super busy family schedule.
For me that place is Grove Collaborative! Grove is the easiest, most affordable way to create a healthy and beautiful home. They offer the best natural products (think Method, Mrs. Meyer’s, and more) at a discounted price and deliver them quickly to your door, on your schedule.
