i’ll be honest with you: i tend to go with the easy route. after 6 years of being in business for myself, part-time homeschooling, and being mama to 3 kids (can i still call them little? please say yes.), one area of my life that severely lacked attention was the cleanliness of my home.
i can tidy up quick, and even do a speedy wipe down of the bathrooms before guests come over, but i have either done few and far between deep cleanings, or simply relied on the chores my kids do to help around the house (which deserves another post of its own). but now that i have a little more time on my hands after closing my shop, and a LOT more mind space, i feel like i actually have margin in my life to try things like making my own cleaning products!
my good friend jeannett has been making her own laundry detergent for years, along with a few other cleaning products, so all this organic, homemade stuff is not just for hippies ;)
becky, from clean mama, a long time wonderful sponsor of mine and blog expert on cleaning, has written a book called the organically clean home! i have loved her printables to organize my life, and now am so excited to use her recipes to try to make some of these products myself!
i’m specifically looking forward to a few things: 1) to be able to save a little money making my own cleaning products. who doesn’t like saving money? 2) to make safer products for my kids to use, because really, they do more cleaning than i do. 3) to make mopping cloths to replace my disposable ones! (only 3 ingredients, one of them being water, i think i can handle that!)
becky’s book is released this friday, but you can pre-order now!
