Ever since I got my hands on my first bottle of Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products, I’ve been sold. Really the smell is what drew me in, but the quality of the cleaning solution is amazing – it works wonders on everything I’ve used it for so far! Don’t be fooled by the fact that isn’t a drop of bleach to be found in her products. I started out by buying a bottle of the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Countertop Spray but quickly found out about the the All Purpose cleaner, it comes in a 32 oz bottle that you dillute with water to really streeeetch the budget. Once your countertop bottle runs out, just refill it with water and 5 tablespoons of the All Purpose cleaner and you’re set!
Now I am interested still in making my own household cleaner with the following ingredients:
- 3 parts water
- 1 part vinegar
- a dash of dishwashing soap
- a few drops of essential oil (optional) $5+ per bottle
But I think it will be hard to part ways with the great Basil and Lemon Verbana smells I’ve become accustomed to! In fact I find myself looking for something to clean!
Now for just pennies you can try the recipe above or if you’re new to VitaCost you can still get a $10 credit to spend on a purchase of $10 or more. You’ll just need to pay the $4.99 shipping. So you could buy a bottle of Mrs. Meyer’s All Purpose Cleaner ($6.71) and a bottle of Clean Day Countertop Spray ($3.56) and just pay $5.26 for them both shipping to your door.
Have you tried either or both of these methods?
