“One way I’ve personally found to really save money is by making homemade cleaning solutions. If you haven’t tried making your own cleaning solutions yet, give it a try and see what you think!

It honestly took me awhile before I was willing to try this, but after I did a quick analysis of how much money I could save, I knew it was time to start making up some frugal cleaning solutions of my own! This solutions literally cost about 40 cents or so to make, as opposed to the $3 – $4 price tag you’ll often see on cleaners at the store.

Following is my tried and true “recipe” for homemade 409… just a few simple ingredients, and you’re on your way to an effective and thrifty cleaning solution!

Homemade 409

What You’ll Need:

2 Tbsp. Distilled White Vinegar

1 Tsp. Borax

1/8 cup Dawn Dishsoap

1 cup Hot Water

What You’ll Do:

Pour vinegar, borax and hot water into spray bottle.

Then continue filling spray bottle with cool water.

Add Dawn dish soap last. No need to shake.

This is a great cleaner, because the vinegar acts as a disinfectant!

If you haven’t ever made your own cleaning solutions, I’d highly encourage you to try! It’s easy to do, and you might be amazed at how much money you’ll save!” is a positive, fun site helping you save $$ and stretch your dollars by sharing Freebies & Giveaways, Grocery Coupons, Hot Restaurant Deals, Thrifty Recipes & Frugal Living Tips!
