Having a sparkling clean home doesn’t mean you have to spend loads of money, especially when you can make homemade household products yourself. I feel so much better about my house when I know everything that goes into cleaning it and I don’t have to stress about harsh chemicals that are dangerous for my daughter or pets.
Like many others I know, I didn’t give a ton of thought to the household products I used before I had a baby. During pregnancy, I did a ton of research on chemicals and the danger of some cleaning products, and all that really came to a head when my little girl started crawling all over the floor—I was determined to rid our home of toxins.
Plus, it’s a bonus to get to enjoy a fresh, clean home that smells amazing too. There are so many eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning solutions that work just as well, if not better than the ones you might purchase at the store.
