Make Homemade Cleaning Products with 3 Simple Items

Nowadays, there are special cleaning products for nearly every surface, fabric, and cleaning issue you may encounter. Having all of the right products handy just in case you need them could occupy massive amounts of valuable closet space and cost an arm and a leg.

However, there are a few everyday products you could use to concoct your own versatile cleaning solutions for a fraction of the cost. When used correctly, these three products could easily replace a closet full of specialty cleaning products. 

Dish Soap

Liquid dish soap mixed with warm water can double as a stain remover. You can use the miracle concoction to extract stains from clothing and carpet without the expense of fancy stain removers.

But that’s not all dish soap can do! You can also use liquid dish soap mixed with water to clean concrete, windows, cabinets, jewelry, and vinyl and tile floors (just be sure to rinse thoroughly afterwards to avoid slipping).

Vinegar and water is a terrific all-arounder that you can use to clean a wide array of surfaces and products. It can be used to clean nearly anything prone to build-up or calcification, including sink faucets, showerheads, bathroom surfaces, coffee makers, microwaves, windows, and dishes.

Not only that, vinegar can also help remove stains like antiperspirant, wine, scorch marks, and pet urine.

You can even use vinegar in your hair to remove product build-up.
