Frugal Friday

How many cleaners do you currently have under your kitchen and bathroom sinks? In years past, I would have many different types of cleaners for different jobs. I have discovered that plain, warm water will clean so many things. After all, water is the universal solvent! We have all hardwood flooring and tile in our home and when we built it, the manufacturers recommended no chemicals, just water. So I decided that this could be the case for many other cleaning jobs! I do use a soap scum cleaner in the bathrooms and some bleach in the kitchen sinks but that is pretty much it. This also saves a great amount on the grocery bill.

I will say that I bought a plain spray bottle, from the dollar store and I keep it filled with a mixture of bleach/water and a few drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid. I clean the bathrooms with it (using a scrubby sponge, again dollar store for a huge multi pack), and also the kitchen. The bleach mixture has helped us keep the cold germs at bay. I did "invest" in one of those steam mops for our floors and it is awesome.
