Pin It I want to take a moment and Welcome all our new followers! We are very excited to see all of you!

I noticed our posts on saving money in the household cleaners has been getting a lot of attention, I find this total awesome since it excites me how much I have been saving in the cleaners department. 

A few weeks ago I made my cleaning supplies (for about 2 months) and I thought I would share quickly with you about that. 

I spent about 40 minutes and I made
64 loads of laundry soap
64 loads of dish washer soap
Bottle of daily shower cleaner
Bottle of Febreeze 
Bottle of Clorox cleanup 

This was all free to me since I already owned the product to make it but if you want to break it down by cost I used $1.98 worth of my products. Now here is the best part at the store I could have easily spent around $50.00, if I went to the store and purchased everything to make all these products homemade I would have spent about $12.00 with leftover product for next time. Now I am big on my time is worth money and if I have to spend 3 hours to save $5.00 it is not worth my time. Well I spent less than 40 minutes in my kitchen with my son helping, I can't drive to Walmart and home in that time!

If you are wondering about my recipes you can find

This week I am going to try a  few new cleaners with Castile soap, has anyone used this before? Any tips or recipes you want to share?

Thanks for reading and happy cleaning!


  1. I have a question...I am interested in making the laundry soap but I was wondering if you could fill me in on the scent?

    I currently use Tide and I love the way my laundry smells out of the dryer, and even days after.

    I'd love your input! As for the others, I will be hitting up Target today to get my cleaning supplies! Happy cleaning!!!

    1. If you would like to add scent you can with 8-12 drops of an essential oil (scent of your choice) at the end while you are stirring it in the bucket.

  2. I have a question, when making the dish washing, how big of a container do u need? I'm really excited about this web site.
