DIY CleaningDIY means simply, Do It Yourself. An acronym. In certain circles, it's so well known we don't think about it anymore. But I cannot forget many out there are not familiar with it. So, Do it yourself = DIY
For me, DIY Cleaning - means not filling my home with unnecessary toxins, noxious fumes and hazardous chemicals. After years spent cleaning with industrial cleaners because of places I worked, the smells of some make me sick. After a little research, I discovered items I already have at home can do the same job- if not better- without causing headaches, rashes, dried skin and sinus troubles. Safer for me, safer for my family and pets and just as clean.
I am still learning these, but I am proud of each successful change- Not because everything turns out perfect (it doesn't always) but because I TRIED. I can not learn- unless I try; and I love always learning. When it works I share... I'll even share a few mistakes as well because others might possibly learn from my mistakes. I'll admit to a few.
Most DIY Cleaning items are extremely frugal- which is very appealing to me. Truthfully, the majority of green cleaning items are composed of common household items - nothing new or glamorous. Mostly, they are common ingredients that were once very familiar to our grandparents, and generations before them- basic common ingredients that just...well? got forgotten in the age of convenience.
They are very effective. Very efficient. Very frugal. And well worth the time taken to mix and use!
