Have you ever walked by the cleaner aisle in a grocery store and caught a whiff of all that fragrance? Even just a hint of scent from these aisles gives me a headache!
Not everyone is as sensitive as this. My husband doesn’t have the same reaction. But we still choose to avoid bringing such chemicals into our home.
I had been using another recipe with Castille soap but it turned out to cause trouble for a lot of my readers so I looked into other options. So glad because I’ve been using this one with excellent results!
Happily, we can enjoy real, natural fragrances instead of synthetic imitations with recipes for DIY cleaners like this one. The bonus is that this cleaning recipe actually saves you money over store-bought cleaners! (Affiliate links are present.)
