I would love to tell you that I handled it gracefully when I found out that I have multiple chemical sensitivity. I would love to but I can’t. The truth is that I felt let down by the very products that we use so often in our lives. I felt that it wasn’t fair that other people can use them but I can’t. I felt let down by the fact that in today’s society, living without chemicals is extremely hard. Now, a year later, I look back at those first few weeks when we were removing chemicals from our home and I know that not only did we do the right thing, but we also did the only thing we could. As a result, we’ve saved an insane amount of money over the last year because we stopped buying certain things and started making them homemade. Cleaning supplies make up a lot of the products we all buy so I’m positive that making your own homemade cleaning supplies can help you save too and that’s where these natural cleaning recipes come into play!
These natural cleaning recipes are all super easy to make. I know that a lot of people think that making your own homemade cleaning supplies is hard, but it really isn’t. Usually the process only involves a few ingredients and a mixer. What this means is that if you’ve been using the “it’s too hard” excuse, you really have none now. They’re not hard to make and when you do a side by side comparison of the cost? They’re so much cheaper! Honestly I didn’t think they would be when we first started making them, but they really and truly are!

These 34 natural cleaning recipes are my favorite. You’ll find recipes to clean every area of your home. What I did when I first started making them was to print them out and put them all into a binder with clear sheet protectors to protect them from dirt or water. That gave me the ability to keep them right near my work station without having to worry about printing them over and over again.
