Let me tell you the amount of hope that I have wrapped up into this little book…
My house is in the middle of a remodel. It’s torn apart, dirty, and the idea of cleaning it from top to bottom before we move back in is more than a little scary.
We have about a week and a half until the hardwood floors are installed/stained/sealed, the main rooms of the house are painted, and the cabinets are refinished.
Once the contractors have left, I will go in and clean every inch of the house from ceiling to floor and scrub each appliance inside out until it gleams. Then, we’ll put the house back together.
Thanks to the Mommypotamus, the entire job can be done with frugal recipes that are safe for everyone and easy to make.
This DIY carpet cleaner will help me spot treat whatever the contractors bring in on their shoes as they trudge upstairs to use the commode.
Did I mention they’re frugal? I need a lot of that right about now.
Our next project is to pay down our mountain of debt and squeeze every penny until it can’t be squeezed anymore. That means back to DIY everything.
Here’s where I can help you too…
You want to be green and save money by making your own cleaning products.
Sometimes these recipes you’ve Googled work out but mainly you end up with a closet full of failed attempts.
Not this time mamas.

Yesterday, my son ate some laundry detergent. Being the kind, thoughtful mother that I am, I haded him a glass of water to wash it down.
That, folks, is the beauty of making your own non-toxic cleaning supplies. – Mommypotamus
