I am learning so many new things this week. I was trying to figure out what I spend on all my cleaning supplies and laundry soap and dishwashing detergent. I also wondered how safe the products are in my home. I have an autistic adult son who lives at home with us as well as his younger brother with asthma. There is always the concern when it comes to cleaning and chemicals.

In recent years I have tried to only purchase natural products that are safe but that has greatly increased how much I spend for these products. Imagine my surprise when I learned that you can get the recipes for all kinds of do it yourself cleaning supplies on Pinterest, the Social Media Site for Do It Yourselfers and Crafters. 

I was shocked to learn that I could make my own cleaning concoction to clean the shower and tub in the bathroom by simply mixing Dawn dishwashing detergent and vinegar. I guess I won’t be buying the Martha Stewart products at my local Naples Publix grocery store anymore. Who knew I could easily make my own.
