Weekly Tip – DIY Cleaning


We’ve all seen the Pinterest posts about all the savings from natural diy cleaning products.  Create your own air freshener to not only save on harmful chemicals in your home but money in your pocket. Air fresheners sold in the store can be as expensive as $4 a bottle.  If you purchase just one bottle a month you’d be spending $48 on air freshener alone.  Imagine a whole arsenal of natural cleaning products you can make at home will save you.  My absolutely favorite cleaning products are vinegar and baking soda.
