Pinterest is one of my favorite sites. I can spend hours just looking around at all the crafty and innovative ideas that people come up with. It's actually a terrible place for me to waste a lot of time. I can’t tell you how much inspiration I get from Pinterest and how many different pins I have tired. Each Friday I will be featuring something I have crafted, cooked, or found on Pinterest that I love!
Here is a great idea I found on Pinterest that I thought was worth trying... Homemade Clorox Clean Up!
I love cooking up new recipes but my favorite recipes don’t stop at the dinner table. Yesterday I was cleaning up in one of the bathrooms and realized my Clorox Clean Up was almost gone. I love this stuff and clean like a mad person with it. At almost $4 a bottle I have trouble even thinking about buying more especially when I have one bottle in each bathroom and one in the kitchen. They are all almost empty.
At almost $4 each that is going to add up quickly. I am not going to go so far as to say I am cheap, but I am certainly a frugal person. I just can’t justify dropping that much money when I originally got them all on sale combine with a coupon for little to nothing.
As I was cleaning up the bathroom my frugal mind went to work. I knew someone on the Pinterest had to have come up with a recipe for refilling these spray bottles that would be less expensive that dropping $16 that it was going to cost for me to replace mind.
It only took me a few seconds of digging to find a ton of recipes that are all pretty much the same. I deiced to give it a try and see what came of it. At this point I would even take a subpar formula to save a lot of money. Don’t get me wrong I love Clorox Clean Up but if I don’t have a coupon or a great sale I am not buying it. I just can’t justify it.
The good news is I didn’t have to settle for subpar and I didn’t have to drop a lot of money as a matter of fact I only had to spend pennies and even better I had everything I needed.
- 1 empty spray bottle (I used the Clorox Clean Up Bottle)
- ¼ cup of bleach (I used the store brand that cost me $1)
- 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap or laundry soap
- tap water
- To your empty bottle add bleach, and dish or laundry soap.
- The fill the remainder of your water with cool or room temperature water.
- Replace the lid then gently shake to mix together, and it’s done! Now you are back in business!
Give this recipe a try next time you are out of Clorox Clean Up and tell me if you can tell a difference. I couldn’t tell any difference at all. Not only does it smell the same, look the same, and clean up the same it saved me a lot of money and a trip to the store. You can’t beat that!
