  • Natural are so much better – If you have the time to make them!!

  • I use a bit of both but am transitioning more and more to low tox cleaning products. I use bi carb made into a paste to clean the oven and use vinegar and essential oils for spray and wipe. We use vinegar as a rinse aid in the dishwasher and sometimes I make my own washing powder.

  • We have a septic tank so are meant to use non bleach and septic recently products. So we get the Earth brand stuff which seems a bit more gentle. But I make my own antiseptic cloths… Equal Vinegar and water, dash of detergent, few drops of essential oil and I put it over some microfiber clothes (from woolies) in a container. Then wipe be he’s or light switches or cupboards with them.

  • it is a mixture of both but the ready to go ones are convenient.

  • I use Earth products & I absolutely love them!
    They are kind to the environment, affordable, have an amazing scent & work wonderfully.

  • Google “miracle spray” (it’s on the cheapskates website). I make it and love it, it’s an all purpose cleaner with no chemicals. I think natural works just was well if not better than chemical. It might be a little more work to prepare but totally worth it. And cheaper!

  • I love vinegar. I always use it to clean the windows. Warm water with vinegar, and newspaper.
