Do you think it is expensive to purchase eco friendly household cleaning products?
I recently went to my local dollar store and found you can buy all sorts of eco friendly household cleaning products for just a dollar!
1. Vinegar- The dollar store sells 32 ounce bottles of vinegar. Vinegar is an awesome eco friendly cleaner. If you’ve never used it before, I recommend it for cleaning pots and pans, cleaning toilets, and for cleaning your outdoor living spaces.
2. Baking Soda – At my dollar store, boxes of baking soda were actually priced at only $0.59! Baking soda is another eco friendly cleaner that can be used in so many different ways. Make an all purpose scrub, or make a non-toxic carpet deodorizer.
3. Rags - Ditch the paper towel habit and pick up a stack of rags at the dollar store. My favorite rags are by Scotch Brite and are called Ultra Absorbent Shammy Towels. These suckers can sop up a spill in no time. Toss them in the wash, and they are ready for your next big spill. If you can find these at your dollar store, I highly recommend them.
4. Clothesline – Pick up a clothesline for just a buck and dry your clothes the eco friendly way. With spring here, a clothesline turns into a solar powered, inexpensive, ultra easy way to dry your clothes.
5. Wooden Clothes Pins – If you invest in a clothesline, you’ll need clothes pins. The dollar store has a bag for just a dollar that will help you get started. Not to mention, clothes pins are handy to have around the house for organization.
6. Scrub Brushes - Replace your sponges with scrub brushes. The dollar store has a large assortment from which to pick. Scrub brushes are excellent for dish doing, tub scrubbing, grout cleaning, carpet stain removal, and patio stain removal.
