CREATE | February 2011: DIY Household Cleaners

I've been working on a DIY custom-fitted and customized t-shirt during January 2011; however, I decided yesterday to omit the "customized" part of adding any rosettes or embroidery. Truth be told, I tend to like my clothes to be simple in terms of color or line - I couldn't honestly see myself wearing something that was too elaborate. Since the custom fitting of the t-shirt fits me well, that's good enough for me on this DIY project

For February 2011, I'm planning on making some simple DIY household cleaners. With coupons and sales, I do pretty well at buying what we need to keep our home clean for pennies on the dollar.

There are a few things we like to use, however, that are a bit spendier and for which coupons/sales can be tricky to find. For those items, I thought it would be wise to *finally* try one of the many DIY household cleaner recipes that are posted around the interwebz. ;-)

Here's what I'll be making:

:: Homemade Febreze (February 8, 2011)

:: Homemade Disinfectant Wipes (February 15, 2011)

:: Homemade Window Cleaner (February 22, 2011)

I'll post a quick vlog of each of these little projects so that you can follow along.

  1. I love Febreze! My youngest boy plays soccer and his gear has gotten so stinky that I can smell when he comes home from the game. I have ended up replacing his cleats and jerseys so many times just because I can’t get the stink out. I’m working with the new Febreze SPORT collection and it’s been a lifesaver – it is specifically formulated to find and eliminate sweat odors on shoes, apparel and gear: http://on.fb.me/FebrezeSport
